NBA Playoffs 1950: Minneapolis Lakers

L.A. Lakers pictures, history, records, championships, and data about Kobe Bryant and players like Magic Johnson

Here you have the information about the 1950 NBA Playoffs and the path the Los Angeles Lakers took to win a new championship.

The league had 17 teams in 1950 and the best 12 (4 from each Division) competed in a traditional playoff format with their division rivals. Then things became a little complex being 3 Division winners. The Syracuse Nationals went straight to the Finals because they had been the best of the 3 in the regular season. The Lakers and the now extinct Anderson Packers had to play an NBA Semifinal series to decide the other finalist.
