NBA TOUCHED BY GOLD: The History-making Story of the 1971-1972 NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers
Many consider the 1971-72 World Champion Los Angeles Lakers one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA. But despite a remarkable run to the title that included a record 33-game winning streak, this group of aging stalwarts and enthusiastic youngsters were the unlikeliest of champions.
Stunning archival footage and photos paint a very personal picture of the team's stars including Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Gail Goodrich, Pat Riley, and the coach Bill Sharman. Through exclusive interviews with West, Goodrich, Riley, Tommy Hawkins and Elgin Baylor along with, writers, and historians, Touched by Gold reveals the characters, personalities and events that gave us one of the most unique seasons in professional sports.
The larger-than-life tales and locker room insight are complemented by rare archival interviews with the incomparable Wilt Chamberlain, vintage photos and spectacular 16mm color film.
This NBA Premier Films presentation celebrates a remarkable group of men who after a decade of falling just shy of their goal dared to change and became one of the league's greatest teams -- the first in a glittering line of Lakers to be crowned NBA Champions.
