Power forward Kurt Rambis had greasy hair and big pop bottle glasses, but he served his purpose for the Lakers back in the day. He did all of the dirty work for the Magic Johnson era Lakers. Rambis’ best season for the Lakers came back in 1985-86. Rambis played in 74 games (all starts) for the Lakers in 1985-86 and he averaged 21.3 minutes, 5.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. Rambis played in 569 games (303 starts) in his nine years with the Lakers and he averaged 17.7 minutes, 4.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Rambis gave the showtime Lakers toughness and they needed it.
