The "Showtime" Era 

Tickets during the showtime era were popular but nothing like the Lakers of the 2000s. The NBA as a whole was just starting to become more popular but secondary market ticket prices were not anything like you would see today, even if you added today's money value to the price of tickets then.

In 1979, the Lakers drafted Ervin "Magic" johnson out of Michigan State University and it would begin what was known as the "Showtime Era" for the Los Angeles Lakers. It is a historical era in NBA history because it was during that era that not only the United States but the rest of the world started gaining the increased interest in NBA basketball and was really the beginning of the huge popularity and success that it is today and a big reason that ticket prices are so much.

Led by Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabaar, the Lakers would go on to win 5 NBA championships in the "Showtime Era" from 1979-1988. 

 Lakers Three-Peat 

Tickets during the three-peat era were very tough to come by. The popularity of the Lakers was at an all-time high with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal leading the way

In 1988, after the Lakers won their 2nd title in as many years, shooting guard Byron Scott coined the phrase "Three-Peat". It was in reference to the Lakers possibly winning the 3rd title in a row. The Los Angeles Lakers head coach at the time, Pat Riley, would go on to make the term a registered trademark. The Lakers would not be able to use that term after that 1988-89 season as they went on to lose the championship finals that year to the Detroit Pistons.

It wasn't until after the 1993 NBA season after the Chicago Bulls won the Championship for the 3rd consecutive year (1991, 1992, 1993) that the now trademarked term 'Three-Peat" would be used by an NBA team. Pat Pat Riley's arch-nemesis at the time, Phil Jackson, was the head coach for the Chicago Bulls so it was sort of bittersweet for Pat Riley to profit off of all of the Chicago Bulls three-peat memorabilia.

Even though the Lakers were the first team to actually successfully complete a three-peat after winning the 1952, 1953, and 1954 seasons, the term was not trademarked then and it wasn't until the Lakers won in 2000, 2001, and 2002 that the team that was part of coining the phrase actually got to officially use it. Ironically enough, Pat Riley was no longer the head coach of the Lakers, his old pal Phil Jackson was.
