The Lakers are the subject of a new documentary, “Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers,” airing on Hulu.
The documentary follows the rise of the Lakers under Dr. Jerry Buss through the Showtime Era, the Kobe-Shaq three-peat, and more.
LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Pat Riley, Jeanie Buss, and others are interviewed for the series.
Bryant was an 18-time All-Star, five-time NBA champion, four-time All-Star MVP, two-time Finals MVP, and 2007-08 regular season MVP.
He was also inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, a member of the 75th Anniversary Team, and an Oscar winner.
