To Keep Three-Peat Hopes Alive, Lakers Must Look to the Past

5. Luck – Robert Horry and Derek Fisher

Big Shot Rob’s Game 4 dagger against the Kings in the 2002 Western Conference Finals came with a little bit of luck. After both Kobe and Shaq missed consecutive lay-ups, Kings center (and former Laker) Vlade Divac tipped the ball out toward the top of the key, luckily, it was right at Robert Horry in perfect rhythm. Horry stepped into the three, and drilled it, tying the series at two games. The Lakers went on to win that series, and the title.

0.4 is synonymous with Derek Fisher, and vice versa. Perhaps the greatest shot in the history of basketball, there could have been a little luck involved. To get the ball in, and out of your hands in 0.4 seconds is nearly impossible, but Fisher proved anything is possible.

If the Lakers are to go on and win this series, an element of luck will be involved. Whether it be a lucky break, a lucky shot, or a lucky call, to make this kind of history is a breeding ground for luck. Believe.
