Michael Cooper Booking Agent Details

Michael Cooper is a former NBA player and coach who played 13 seasons for the Los Angeles Lakers from 1978-1990, winning five championships in the process. Drafted out of New Mexico in the third round of the 1978 NBA Draft, Cooper immediately bolstered the Lakers with his strong defense. He earned five NBA All-Defensive First-Team honors in his career; four of them came in years when L.A. won the league title. During his career, he averaged 8.9 points per game.

Cooper has enjoyed a successful coaching career in his post-playing days. From 2000-04 he coached the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA, leading the team to back-to-back WNBA titles in 2001 and 2002. The Sparks made the championship for a third straight time in 2003 but lost to the Detroit Shock. He earned WNBA Coach of the Year honors in 2000. From 2006-2007, he coached the Albuquerque Thunderbirds (now the Canton Charge) of the NBA’s D-League (now the G-League). The Thunderbirds won the NBA D-League Championship in his first season at the helm, making Cooper the only coach to win a championship in the NBA, WNBA and NBA D-League. Cooper has also coached the USC Trojans women’s basketball team, the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream and 3’s Company of the Big3 League.
