Earlier today, I wrote about Hall of Famer James Worthy getting hypnotized by a dancing Lakers Girl. That hilarious Vine inspired me to devote an entire post to the lovely Laker Girls. It was a tough job digging through photo after photo of these beautiful young women, but that’s how deep my commitment is to bringing my readers hard-hitting journalism.
Before we get into the good stuff, here’s a little background infomation on the Laker Girls. They are an all-female cheerleading squad for the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, and they currently have 22 ladies on their roster. The Lakers’ late owner Jerry Buss came up with the idea of having dancers on the sidelines during games, and for that we owe him a debt of gratitude. The Laker Girls made their debut in 1979, and they have been delighting fans ever since.
The most famous former Laker Girl is Paula Abdul. She was discovered by The Jacksons while dancing during a game, and they hired her to choreograph the music video to “Torture.” Abdul would go from choreographing music videos and movie scenes, to selling a sh*tload of records as a singer, to having to deal with world-class prick Simon Cowell on American Idol.
Now that you know a little history about the Laker Girls, enjoy the hottest photos of the cheerleading squad. The action on the court isn’t the only reason Jack Nicholson has had season tickets for so long.
