Finally, Von Wafer pays off for the Lakers!
Von Wafer has always been one of our favorite guys here at Lakers Blog (Please God, never make us choose between Von and Slava. King Solomon himself never conjured a more difficult decision.) but it's fair to say that entry into the Great Hall of Outstanding Lakers eluded him, Von's 15.4 FG% in purple and gold notwithstanding. But Wednesday night, Von Von, now with the Rockets, hit the game winner for Houston in their 89-85 win over The Hated Celtics in Boston.
In honor of that, we give you this: Quite likely one of Von's greatest moments in purple and gold, and very likely the only one of his six field goals captured for posterity on YouTube.
