Default Robert Horry's shot that beat the Kings

If it weren't for the fact that he actually made that shot,

what was he doing out there at the 3 point line instead of trying to grab the rebound?

That was one of the dumbest plays i've seen, but someone get applauded for it.

that's how the lakers played back then, inside out. Shaq would draw the double kick it out to fisher, kobe, fox or shaw...

Dude were u born back then...it was a 2 point game with like 2 seconds to go.

its about not being in the right place but he was there at the right time.

The real question should be why did Webb leave him to go in the paint?

I see your point. It does kind of seem weird that on last second plays every single player isn't fighting for the rebound.

Exactly dumbass, it's about getting a clean shot, not clogging the lane to get a rebound because there isn't enough time

Never forget that shot. I was at my friends lake house. I didn't even like the Lakers and I was jumping around the room like a little kid for some reason.

so in a 2 point game with less than 2 seconds left on the clock, you have kobe, shaq in the paint, trying to grab the rebound for a quick put back, but instead, a near 7 foot powerforward should step outside to the 3 point line to defend a low percentage chuck?

Horry did not do the right play, but was glorified for it.

This was not PJ Brown Webber was guarding and left at the top of the key, this was a known clutch assassin in "Big Shot Bob."

And like you said, it was a 2 point game. The worst that could happen if Shaq get that board and put it back in was overtime. With Webb now in the pain, he's wide oped at the top of the key for jumper. If Webber is guarding him, that tipped board from Divac get's interrupted, or maybe even goin to Chris instead of Horry.

LOL, u dumb as shiite. 2 seconds to go, but somehow, kobe managed to drive and get a layup attempt, then shaq managed to get a rebound and miss a putback, and vlade managed to tap the ball out to horry to hit the 3. WOW LONG 2 FUKKING SECONDS.

Horry was doing what Horry does, and that's hit dagger 3's in your fukking eyeball. Get a clue kid.
