Mines is without a doubt the 0.4 by D Fish

and meeting lamar odom during shoot around I was sitting in my seat ready to watch and then Odom come out of nowhere with a hotdog in his hand and he gave me an autograph and I shook his hand and yes his arms are long. Pretty funny moment cause I didnt expect Odom with a hotdog coming out of the tunnel haha.

That one and including the three-pointer Robert Horry made to win the game against the Kings in Game 4 of the 2002 WCF and the game winner Kobe Bryant made against the Suns in Game 4 of the first round in the 2006 playoffs.

In 6th Grade, I came home the day we got out for Christmas break and my dad surprised me with tickets to the Lakers game. I was happy but I thought we'd have nosebleed seats like we always get but this time, they're fourth row seats, right behind the Laker's bench. The game was against the Nuggets (this was in the 04 season) and Kobe was in Denver for his trial and came to the game late but he ended up nailing the game winning shot at the buzzer over Jon Barry.

That is number one. My favorite bball shot of all time. Just too much, I don't know how stuff like this can be real.

Also, the first time I fell in love with the Lakers... Kobe crosses Scottie Pippen, throws up the one-handed lob to Shaq who slams it down for the dagger to complete one of the greatest comebacks ever... runs down the floor with his fingers pointing in the air... ya'll know what I'm talking about.

Also meeting Sasha and Pau

That was freakin' amazing.

Man I can't pick one!

Derek's 0.4.. Horry's game winning 3.. or.. I think it was Smush Parker stealing the ball from Nash then giving it to Kobe then him making a lay-up to make it overtime, then his game winning shot at the end of overtime.

The Lakers are the funnest team to watch.

That's my favorite moment as well. It's seems almost surreal looking back on it, but I wasn't paying much attention because I was jumping around at that time.

The Lakers truly are the most heart wrenching team to watch play the game with adrenaline flooding through your veins in the final moments of a close game only to be replaced with bouts of joy or anger following the conclusion.

The one thing that the early 2000s Lakers squad could do is fill me, and probably many other fans, with the hope that no matter what the circumstances, we could still win the game. If it were a close game coming down to the final shot, I knew that I could count on Horry, Fisher, Kobe etc. to come through and hit the game winning shot. This new squad's starting to fill me with that same excitement. Thank god the Lakers are back :rock:

Easy.

2000 WCF's - Game 7

In fact, it's the single greatest moment I've ever been a part of with sports. And, it was the first video I ever did:



Also... I was also at the game (3 rows from the court on the bottom right - foul line extended) when Horry hit that shot. You can see me and my dad - I'm in a white cap, yellow shirt...

Oh yeah... almost forgot. 2000 WCF and the 15-0 run against Portland in the 4th quarter. Wonder how many people turned off their TVs, going into the 4th.

Game 4 in the 2000 finals, Shaq fouls out in OT. Kobe then takes over by hitting 2 consecutive buckets and the game winning layup from Shaw's miss. Giving the Lakers a 3-1 series lead of the Pacers. :mellow:

The end of Game 4 WCF against the Kings
0.4
81
62 vs. 61
Game 4 vs. the Suns
Game 2 vs. the Pistons
