Each week on “Hello, Old Sports” Andrew and Dan Neumann examine a different sports history topic—baseball, basketball, football, hockey, boxing, and anything else that comes to mind. We’ll travel back to 1920 to relive the founding of the Negro Leagues and Babe Ruth’s first season with the New York Yankees. Or to 1967 to relive the closing drive of the “Ice Bowl” between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe even all the way back to 1884 and the first “World Series” between the Providence Grays of the National League and the New York Metropolitans of the American Association.

    The Dark Years: The 1990's Lakers

    It's the next in our series on the "dark years" the years before (or between) a franchise's legendary dynasty years. Last time we covered the 1980's Steelers, this time it's the 1990's Lakers. From the end of "Showtime" to the dawn of the Shaq-Kobe-Phil years. We cover the Cedric Ceballos disappearance, the many Magic Johnson returns, and the coaching tenure of Del Harris, among many other stories.
