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

    Come on you kids, if they don’t get the division, chances are they don’t even get home court advantage in the first round.

    I love how all you die hard laker fans all care about wining it all, you have to take steps to win it all. The first steps is winning the pacific and being in the top 4 so you have home court advantage. Its amazing how many people that care only about winning it all, you need to have goals to accomplish and this is one of many before even playing a championship game. Everyone keep in mind that we lost home court last year to the Celts and see how that turned out. Our next goal, BEFORE WINNING IT ALL as most of you said before this is to get the best record in the NBA so we have home court throughout. So many bandwagon fans its ridicules!

    One step closer to winning it all!

    JV, I understand and agree, but did you really think that winning the Pacific division would be difficult this year? I mean c’mon.

    I guess i phrased it improperly. Woohoo! We won the Pacific division. Let’s not get caught up in this victory. Eyes on the prize. And yes I know it’l take small steps such as this one, but from now on it wont take small steps. To maintain homecourt throughout the playoffs we’ll need the best record in the league, a pretty big thing.

    Lets do this. I just want Bynum to come back in time and help us with post defense, I’m not asking for an amazingly dominant role when he comes back.(hopefully soon!)

    Go Lakers!
