Hairston played six seasons in Los Angeles, averaging double figures in points and rebounds each year. The 6-foot-7 forward starred alongside center Wilt Chamberlain during most of his time as a Laker and led the team in field-goal percentage and rebounding during the 1973-74 season. He played a key role on the Lakers 1971-72 team, which many consider one of the best teams in NBA history when they won a record 33 consecutive games.
