Thompson played with the Spurs for over half a season, before he was traded again, this time to the Los Angeles Lakers. He was brought to the Lakers in mid-February in 1987 to defend Celtics forward Kevin McHale whom he played great defense against, and to back up Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Thompson helped the Lakers win consecutive titles in 1987 and 1988. He retired in 1991.
