With tonight’s win over San Antonio, the Lakers have secured the Pacific Division title for the 20th time in franchise history. Additionally, they have clinched a playoff berth as well. And while all of us have our eye on the NBA title, it’s a very nice accomplishment in one of the most storied and successful franchises in NBA history.
It’s one step to the title and it’s nice to continue a winning tradition in this great organization we all hold so close to our hearts… Congrats 2008-09 Lakers, this is first of many titles we will get.
Other notables include…
- This is our second Pacific Division Title in two years
- We have made the post-season the last four years straight
- The Lakers have had 20 Pacific Division titles in franchise history
