    Crazy. I still remember this game.

    Were that dunk and subsequent chest bump the defining moments of the Lakers championship years? The only other one I can think of is the Horry Sactown 3.

    I was too young to watch Wilt or West. But I watched most of the Magic/Kareem era. And in my opinion, the Kobe to Shaq oop is the greatest play in modern Lakers history. Not only was it a great pass, but the timing was perfect. And Shaq’s reaction topped it off.

    That kobe-shaq alley-op play capped one of the greatest Game 7 comebacks in NBA playoff history. It also started their dominance, their three-peat I must say. Kobe should be thankful he was part of that play and subsequently got a ring because of shaq. LOL!
