How did the Los Angeles Lakers get their name?

Hi friends,

Have you ever wondered how the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team got its name.

Before coming to Los Angeles, the Lakers were located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Minnesota’s motto is “The land of 10,000 lakes.” A cargo ship used on the Great Lakes was known as “Lake Freighters” or  “Lakers”.

Cool!
