From the late 1940’s and the inception of the Lakers franchise, through to the Lakers dynasty of the early aughts, the Lakers have been known to foster some of the greatest centers in professional basketball history. In 1996, the Los Angeles Lakers pulled off one of the greatest free agent signings ever as they lured all-world center Shaquille O’Neal from the Orlando Magic to the Forum Blue and Gold. Recognizing the lineage of Hall of Fame centers who also happened to be the biggest stars in the game playing for the Lakers, Sports Illustrated put three distinct generations of Laker centers on the cover of its 1996 NBA preview issue. New kid on the block Shaquille O’Neal is flanked over his shoulders by all-time leading scorer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and the professional game’s first superstar, George Mikan. We had this Sports Illustrated cover signed by Kareem and Mikan at signings they did at a local show, and the tickets/authenticity cards from the signings are shown on the reverse. We finally had the chance to add Shaquille O’Neal at a recent local signing to complete this essential Lakers signed item. Each of the three blue sharpie signatures remains as bold and clear as the day each was signed. The SI has been matted and framed to an overall size of approximately 12″ x 15″ and is ready to hang.
