Found August 20, 2013 on Lakerholicz.com:
Seeing as Kobe Bryant recently recalled how dominant Shaquille O’Neal was back in the day – Bryant said the things Shaq did on the court were “pretty supernatural” – it seemed like a good time to go down memory lane and remember just how great Kobe and Shaq were as a one-two punch. The video below shows every point scored by Kobe and Shaq in their 2002 Western Conference Finals Game 6 win versus the Sacramento Kings. Shaq ended the night with 41 points and 17 rebounds, while Kobe put up 31 points and 11 boards. O’Neal absolutely man-handled the defense – especially Scott Pollard – and Bryant had a definite pep to his step as he filled it up on the big stage. The Lakers would of course close out the series in Game 7 and went on to defeat the New Jersey Nets in the NBA Finals, netting them their third straight championship.
