This Day In Lakers History:
▪️June 2nd 2002: Lakers defeat Kings, 122-106 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.
Vlade Divac claimed the Lakers could not beat the Kings in a series without home-court advantage.
Shaq didn’t forget Divac’s comments. After the Lakers won, O'Neal put together this Cheers parody.
Lakers were led by Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. Shaq turned in a game-high 35 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks in 51 minutes. Kobe turned in another one of his great games as he finished with 30 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to go along with a game-high 52 minutes.
