The 2010s were a mixed bag for the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Dodgers. One team won a title before irrelevancy and another dominated without winning it all.
As the decade comes to a close, fans in Southern California can reflect on the past 10 years and one specific question that can be asked; as we move into the 2020s, whose town is this—the Los Angeles Lakers or the Los Angeles Dodgers?
Both the Lakers and Dodgers currently look like they are on an upward trajectory at the same time. A rare feat lately that both teams can be on the winning upswing and give their fan bases something to cheer about.
But before we start predicting what’s to come, time to answer the question: who ruled this town this past decade. We are breaking it down by looking at the two teams’ records, the players on each team and the ownership.
