The True Story of the LA Lakers' release date, a trailer, and everything we know about the docuserie

More information about the Lakers is available, and this time it has the backing of the people who have fought against the trophies and the fanfare.

The NBA dynasty has been a lot of attention over the past year. Months ago, the hit HBO series captivated viewers with the dramatic narrative of how the Showtime-era Lakers took shape. Despite the fact that viewers seemed to be fawn over the show, a few of the real players and personnel of the time offered some harsh criticisms of the series for its events.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Jerry West were among the most famous basketball stars. (We did a research using Fact vs Fiction pieces, which proved that a number of things shown in the series were indeed dramatizations and not what happened.)

The new docuseries offers NBA fans the possibility to get acquainted with non just the Showtime-era Lakers, but also with many notable names who have played a major role in the purple and gold history this summer.

Here''s what we can do.

The Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers episode guide

The first two episodes of the 10-part series will air on Monday, August 15, but some may argue the series is biased in favor of those involved in the construction of the Laker Dynasty, but many viewers are enjoying the docuseries.

The following are some episodes for the show.

"Real estate mogul Dr. Jerry Buss buys the Lakers, drafts rookie sensation Magic Johnson, and welcomes his kids into the family business. The team, confronting serious failures and terrifying turns, is captivated fans as Dr. Busss approach changes the NBA forever."

What exactly is Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers?

The premise of the docuseries, according to Hulu, is to describe it as:

This 10-part documentary series chronicles this extraordinary story from the inside. This is an open source documentary about one of the most famous and iconic franchises in professional sports. Features exclusive access to the Buss Family and probing, detailed interviews with players, coaches, and front office executors.

"When charismatic real estate strategist Dr. Jerry Buss purchased the Los Angeles Lakers in a wildly risky and complex business deal, nobody predicted how much success would be achieved. In 1979, the famous L.A.-playboy introduced dancers and a live band, established an exclusive private club inside the arena, cultivating famous fans. The team won 11 titles and retired the jerseys of some of the NBA''s most famous players.

"Today, Dr. Buss'' empire is worth more than $5 billion, but all of that success did not come easy. Along with extensive feuds, career-ending illnesses, and on-court difficulties, the Lakers have also faced off the court with intense confrontation off the court within Dr. Buss'' own family. Ultimately, the franchise, focused on family, business, and power.

If we didn''t mention that while the show focuses on the empire''s construction, we might be wary of mentioning that some of the featured people discuss the tragic passing of NBA great Kobe Bryant.
