Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers covers pivotal moments in Lakers’ history since Dr. Jerry Buss transformed the organization into one of the most successful franchises in sports. The trailer shows interviews with Laker legends Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and LeBron James.

That’s what really drives me. To wear purple and gold – that’s a different feeling,” James says in the trailer.
