Twelve years after being drafted first overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, James Worthy was calling it quits. Aching knees has taken the strength and speed away from the tenacious small forward, leaving Worthy a bench player in his final appearances with the Lakers.

New Laker coach Mike Dunleavy, in his first career head coaching position, was inserted into a job where championships were expectations.
