People always knock the Lakers crowd for arriving late and not being loud, but there is no denying that was one of the loudest reactions any playoff crowd has had to any play in NBA history.

Shaq’s reaction after the play is also one of the legendary moments as his show of exuberance was a sign that there was no doubt the Lakers would be heading to the NBA Finals.

This game also served as a launching pad for Kobe Bryant as, in the biggest game of his young career, he led the Lakers with 25 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists, cementing himself as a bonafide superstar.

The Shaq-Kobe era produced some of the best and most dominant teams the NBA has ever seen and on this throwback Thursday, Lakers Nation salutes Kobe and Shaq for their alley-oop in game seven of the 2000 Western Conference Finals.
