Although Spencer Haywood was not featured in Episode 9, 'Winning Time': The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, the viewers will always remember Wood Harris's performance as the former Lakers star. Spencer Haywood's promising, pivotal career as a player for the purple and golden ended before the 1980 NBA Finals. He was done with his cocaine addiction.
