The Times' Houston Mitchell recently surveyed readers for their choices for the greatest Lakers of all time. His report:

We got 1,151 ballots from you, the loyal reader (and believe me, no one here thought we had 1,151 readers left), for the greatest L.A. Lakers of all time. But before we get to the results, here are my choices for Nos. 4 to 1.

No. 4: Kobe Bryant

No. 3: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

No. 2: Jerry West (Almost considered making him No. 1 because of his tenure as GM).

No. 1: Magic Johnson
