This is incredible. To think of all the great teams in the league history, especially the Celtics (yes, give them credit), it’s amazing to get to this milestone! Purple n Gold!
Lakers BasketBlog: Time to self-congratulate.
The Lakers became the first franchise in NBA history to reach 3,000 wins after a tough win in Dallas on Wednesday night.
Win number 3,000 snapped a four-game road losing streak for the Lakers and improved the 2009-10 squad to a league-best 30-9 record.
In Minneapolis, the Lakers won 457 times in the 1950’s, leaving 2,542 victories in Los Angeles, where the franchise moved prior to the 1960-61 season.
They’ll go for 3,001 against the Clippers on Friday night.
