LA Lakers basketball hoop expected to realise $30,000

A basketball hoop from the LA Lakers' former home, the Forum, is to cross the block at Julien's Auctions.

It's valued at $20,000-30,000 ahead of the November 8 auction in Los Angeles.

The hoop is one of four from the eastern end of the Forum

The hoop was one of four used at the eastern end of the stadium during the "Showtime" era (1979-1991).

This period was characterised by the team's fast and frenetic playing style, starring legendary players like Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

The auction house explains: "The glass backboard of the hoop has been signed and inscribed by Lakers Hall of Fame inductees and notable players from the 'Showtime' era.  

Signatures include Norm Nixon, Mychal Thompson, AC Green, Byron Scott, Magic Johnson, Elgin Baylor, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy.

A Chicago Bulls away uniform worn by Michael Jordan between 1997 and 1998 is expected to make $12,000-16,000.

The season was Jordan's last for the side, making this a poignant piece of basketball memorabilia from one of the greatest ever players of the game.
