From Magic Johnson to Jerry West, some of L.A.'s most legendary sports stars have been immortalized in bronze statues outside STAPLES Center.

We talked with two artists from a father-mother-son team of Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany, who created most of the sculptures on display in Star Plaza. They explained what it takes to capture the essence of a super star.

"Sculpting a montage the figure in motion is really a challenge. The figure in motion is really what captures the energy of the person and the life of the sculpture," Itamar Amrany explain.

"The peak of moment that makes the difference, the peak of moment where the sportsman can express himself to the maximum and we remember it for eternity, but it only lasted a fifth of a second," the elder Omri added.

The artwork can be seen at L.A. LIVE's Star Plaza located near STAPLES Center's east VIP Entrance.
