Remember When: Shaq and Kobe's Alley-Oop in 2000 Conference Finals

Thomas Duffy@@TJDhoopsFeatured ColumnistSeptember 9, 2016

Even in a career filled to the brim with highlights, this one stands out.

The iconic alley-oop from Kobe Bryant to Shaquille O'Neal in Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers booked the Los Angeles Lakers' trip to the NBA Finals.

They went on to defeat the Indiana Pacers in six games, giving both Shaq and Kobe their first titles. O'Neal, who had already won the 1999-2000 MVP award, also took home Finals MVP.

On Friday night, 16 years later, the Big Diesel will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
