Yeah, I remember that whole season like yesterday!
One game, we were down big at the half, and Chick Hearn literally said we were playing like dogs. Interestingly, we ended up winning that game.
Then another game in the playoffs ('95 or '96), when we were losing 1-3, I think, Chick said he overheard a Laker before the game say, "So, we're packing all our stuff today?" Chick was livid and said if it were him, he would have cut the player right on the spot!
Oh '95, you feel so alive to me...
Anyway, happy birthday Ced; my first favorite Laker! Hope you still enjoy motorboats.
