1992-93 Pre-Season - Lakers vs 76ers (Magic Johnson Comeback)
NBA lakers @ soncis highlights april 25 1993 (92-93 season )
The 1992–93 NBA season was the Lakers' 45th season in the National Basketball Association, and 33rd in the city of Los Angeles. After playing in the Olympics, Magic Johnson attempted a comeback, but cut it short when other NBA players expressed fear of playing against him. Under new head coach Randy Pfund, the Lakers played around .500 for the first half of the season. At midseason, Sam Perkins was traded to the Seattle SuperSonics for Benoit Benjamin and rookie Doug Christie. However, the Lakers struggled losing 19 of their final 30 games in March and April, finishing fifth in the Pacific Division with a 39–43 record, their worst since 1974–75, but still qualified the playoffs as the #8 seed in the Western Conference.
