In a close game versus Portland in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, the most iconic basket came with 41 seconds remaining. Shaq drifted towards the hoop and signaled to Kobe to give him an alley-oop. The resulting dunk was immortalized with the announcer's call of "Kobe to Shaq!"

9 June, 1985
With a minute remaining in Game 6 of the 1985 Finals, it was clear that the Lakers would be taking home their 9th championship. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar put up a historic hookshot at the 1:01 mark to give the Lakers an insurmountable 12 point lead over the Celtics.

In Game 5 of the NBA Finals Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sprained his ankle and wouldn't be able to play the next game. Thus Game 6 became 20 year-old rookie Magic Johnson's first start at center. He won the starting tip and put up 42 points and 15 rebounds, leading the Lakers to their 7th championship.

The Lakers had taken a one-point lead with 11 seconds remaining, but Tim Duncan responded with a basket to give the Spurs the lead with .4 sec left. The Lakers had one last chance, and Derek Fisher capitalized, catching the inbound and turning to put the game-winning basket up with no time left.
