The NBA team Los Angeles Lakers was originally formed in which American city?
This was because they were originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, which was known as the state of 10,000 lakes. The team was founded by Minneapolis businessmen Ben Berger and Morris Chalfen in 1947, after they purchased the disbanded Detroit Gems team. At the time they played in the National Basketball League. And they were successful even during their first season when they posted a record of 43-17, and won the NBL championship.
