If 2020 basketball nostalgia belonged to the Chicago Bulls, the Los Angeles Lakers have owned 2022 with HBO's "Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty," "They Call Me Magic" and now "Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers," a 10-part docuseries premiering on Hulu. Yet despite the opportunity to set the record straight, this exhaustive production puts too much emphasis on bench players -- or really, the front office -- at the expense of its all-stars.
