Lakers special section cover.
(Los Angeles Times)

The 2020 Lakers season was one like no other.

A 17th NBA championship for the franchise, its 12th in Los Angeles — but its first in a decade.

A championship won only a year and a half after one of the lowest points in team history.

A championship won in the same year as the death of a Lakers legend.

A championship won by the first woman to be a controlling owner of a title-winning team.

A championship won during a social justice campaign that at times took precedence over the basketball.


A championship won after nearly 100 days inside a Florida “bubble” designed to keep COVID-19 at bay.

How the Lakers did it will be captured in a special Los Angeles Times section published Wednesday.

It will be available to home-delivery subscribers and for purchase at newsstands and online at the L.A. Times store, which offers a variety of Lakers championship keepsakes.
