Mine was definitely the final game of the 1972 playoffs against the Knicks when Jerry West finally got his NBA championship. West was my hero and I was so irritated that the Lakers could not get over the hump against those damn Celtics. West is still my favorite all time Laker. I really liked the game the year before when he hit that way past half court shot to tie the game and put it into OT but they ended up losing that game. West was the man. I think he would have been one of those players who could play today and put up the same kind of numbers.
One of my favorites was Game 5 in 2008 WCF against the Spurs. The game actually didn't have much to do with it. I was just really happy at the time (with everything in my life). And I was even more happy when the Lakers won that game, which won the series. I just remembered Kobe finished those Spurs off.
