With Kareem Abdul Jabbar still playing at a high level and Magic Johnson in the prime of his career, the 88 Lakers became the first team to grab back-to-back titles in 20 years since the Boston Celtics did it in the late 60s. It was a great time for the Lakers, who won their fourth and fifth NBA titles in those two seasons since Magic Johnson came to L.A. in 1979.
