The club appears to have won titles in 1949, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, 2010, 2014 and 2015, although some of these are the same years as the Feud Baseball Team as can be seen on their banners found in the back of barber shops in Grand Theft Auto V.
The team is directly based on the Los Angeles Lakers, due to the purple and gold coloring and the fact that the Panic have won their Championships 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.
