The Showtime era in Los Angeles Lakers history is one of the most famous and fruitful era. Led by coach Pat Riley and point guard Magic Johnson, the Lakers run an exciting run-and-gun style.

Thanks to Magic’s passing skills and Kareem scoring, the team won five championships during the 1980s. They were one of the most successful teams in the history of the Lakers, and the NBA as a whole.

But while they were successful on the court, they had some troubles off the court. No, they were far from the Portland “Jailbreakers” reputation.

But there are things about the Showtime era a lot of people would like to be forgotten. This documentary reveals the dark side of the era.
