Default Greatest Shots in Lakers History

LA Times Story
http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-lak...photogallery?1

Agree? Disagree? I'd probably move Big Rob's shot ahead of Shaq's dunk. I don't know. Maybe make them 3a and 3b?

Shaq's dunk still gives me goosebumps when I see it. We were on the brink of elimination yet again. I hadn't witnessed a Laker Championship since I was about 10 or so. When it happend it was almost like a dream. Like I can't believe we're going to the Finals!

Horry's shot was kinda the same feeling. Honestly I almost passed out when he made it. I didn't even know what type of emotion to have. It was magical, like god wanted it to happen. The ball gets slapped around and somehow finds it's way into Horry's hands, who happend to be standing right at the three point line? Wow.

Lol, look at the ball boy sprinting onto the court after the shot. That's the feeling I had.

That was THE game that I've ever watched, something worth talking about for a very very long time to come.

Both teams were just so good, and when Kobe missed it, I was like thinking, that's it, we're done. But Horry just picks up the ball and calmly drains down the 3, I remember skipping class to watch that game too, and it was easily one of the biggest game in Lakers History I've ever watched.

Fisher's shot against Orlando- was it a bigger shot than 0.4 against the Spurs?

(I think so- there was a happy ending in the Finals, unlike 2004)

.04 was amazing. The Finals 3s were meaningful. Like you stated, we didn't get the bling that year. What he did in Game 4 basically brought home the title. The .04 shot was maybe the most amazing thing I've ever seen though.

Gotta be this Jerry West shot in my book. I know they lost the game in OT but I will never forget that shot as long as I live.

Wow. Hmmm. Jerry West's old school beyond-half-court shot in the Finals that they subsequently lost. Maybe 0.4. Horry top of the arc 3. Magic's Hook across the lane.

*off note* worst shots against Lakers...
1. Ralph Sampson's tip-in WCF
2. Tim Thomas 3

Horry's 3-pointer in the 2002 series will always be my favorite shot.

Magic's baby "sky hook" is still my favorite. Mostly because it ripped the heart out of the Celtics that night. Talk about hearing the life sucked out of the crowd.

Looked on youtube there is really no quality video to see, all they got is fuzzy blury ones not worth trying to view. Maybe somebody knows where there's a higher definition replay.
