Lakers poolside

Lakers poolside

Sept. 12, 1980: Los Angeles Lakers take a poolside break during their Palm Springs training camp. In front from left are Coach Paul Westhead, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jamaal Wilkes, Jim Chones, Michael Cooper, Brad Holland, assistant coach Pat Riley and Mark Landsberger. On the diving board are Magic Johnson and Norm Nixon.

The defending NBA champion Lakers promised a vigorous defense of their title but came up short. First Magic Johnson missed 45 games due to a knee injury. Then, after a 54-28 regular-season record, the Lakers lost the opening three-game playoff series to the Houston Rockets.
