The Los Santos Panic is a basketball team in Los Santos featured in Grand Theft Auto V.


The team is supported by the Ballas. Their home ground is the Maze Bank Arena in La Puerta.

The club appears to have won titles in 1949, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010, identically to the real life Los Angeles Lakers' 16 championships won in those years.


The team is directly based on the NBA team Los Angeles Lakers, due to the purple and gold coloring and the fact that the Panic have won 16 championships as well as in identical years to the Lakers.

  • The Los Santos Panic is the only professional sports team (excluding college teams like the U.C.L.S. Bookworms) in GTA V to have its venue be part of the actual open-world map, the Maze Bank Arena.
  • The name may also be a reference to the many infamous and panic-triggering riots that occurred whenever the Lakers have won consecutive NBA championships, most recently in 2010.
  • The Los Santos Panic is referred to as a 'courting disaster' on billboard advertisements, which is odd, since the team has been stated to have won 16 titles; this may be a reference to the Lakers' troubles during the 2012-13 season, and the infamous Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard feud.
