The 2002 NBA Finals marked the third time in a row that the Los Angeles Lakers reached the championship. However, their journey to the Finals was controversial, leading many to believe that the Western Conference Finals against the Sacramento Kings was rigged in favor of the Lakers. 

Shaquille O’Neal recently shared a video on Instagram discussing this matter. In the video, Kobe Bryant, O'Neal's late teammate, addressed the issue. Bryant mentioned Tim Donaghy, an official involved in the Conference Finals who was later investigated and punished for game-fixing charges.

 

Bryant also noted the suspiciously low number of free throws made by the Kings. The series statistics, such as the Kings' poor three-point shooting and free throw percentage, further support the questionable nature of the games. Mike Bibby, a former Kings player, also spoke about the series, suggesting that something was amiss. 

Although we may never receive an official confirmation, many players remain convinced that there was some form of manipulation involved.
