They found plenty of success in the playoffs as they advanced to Finals, only to lose to the Michael Jordan-led Bulls, 1-4. This was the only Lakers appearance in the Finals during this decade.

Age: 23

Height: 7’1”

Traits: Tenacious Rebounder

Best Stats: Rebounding, Steals, Strength

Divac was a strong presence inside for the Lakers. With Magic grabbing so many rebounds from the point guard position, it was hard for others to grab as many as they might have on any other team. Regardless, Divac averaged 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.

A.C. Green, PF (OVR 76)

Age: 27


Height: 6’9”

Traits: Elite Defender

Best Stats: Rebounding, Strength, Layups

A.C. Green played in every game this season, but filled a bench role for a majority of the season. He filled in for injured starter, Sam Perkins, early on but finished with only 26.4 minutes per game by season end. He averaged 9.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and little else, but was known for his solid on-ball defense.
