The Los Angeles Lakers, unquestionably one of the most storied franchises in sports history, is having a bit a moment right now thanks to the recent (and unfinished) roster upheaval that could have Showtime back in the Finals next June. Despite their greatness throughout the decades, they were not an exception to Michael Jordan’s pure dominance in the 1990s. In fact, their 1991 appearance on the Big Stage against the GOAT marked the start of the Chicago dynasty and the end to the Lakers run, although things picked up a bit when they acquired Shaq just a few years later. This upcoming Air Jordan 13, clearly decorated in Lakers colors, is actually part of a larger “Rivals” Pack that sees classic Retros done up in team colors that reflect Jordan’s most notable opponents, and as you know, anytime Jordan’s first ‘chip comes into the conversation, LA is always mentioned on the other end. Peep this detailed look at this tribute to this 90s rivalry and stay tuned for the 7/19 launch.
