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). Â 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.
