With the Lakers hosting the Warriors in a pretty big game tonight, I thought I’d go old-school with this throwback classic.
The year is 1999. Kurt Rambis and P.J. Carlesimo are coaching. It features a Shaq ejection, a clutch shot by Kobe, and cameos by Mugsy Bogues, John Starks, and Donyell Marshall (and that’s just on the Warriors’ side). Lakers trail by as many as 27 in the 2nd quarter, but still win the game.
Hopefully tonight won’t require such heroics, but will produce the same result.
