GREATNESS IN THE EIGHTIES
What a team, a very special and amazing group of men,
Seems like just yesterday they were here now a memory so fine.
They were the Lakers with quickness and speed,
Down the floor they would run, no one like them could there be.
They could pass the ball with such finesse,
Wizards of the court when they were at their best.
Something special each one would have to give,
Together they were an orchestra, like music so fine.
Destroy their opponent each battle they would do,
These talented sportsmen to the world all knew.
Magic their leader, on the floor there was nothing he couldn’t do,
A man called big game James as fast and quick with the things he could do.
One they called Cooper for his Coop-a-loop,
Beside him, there was Byron whom could shoot the ball too,
Don’t forget A.C. Green who fought for his dream.
Of course in the middle now in the hall of fame,
King Kareem was their giant with his hook so mean.
Let’s not forget Superman, Kurt Rambis a big part,
Who fought for his team with such a great heart.
Los Angeles Lakers,
Greatness in the eighties. Keith Garrett
