Does Spurs coach Gregg Popovich have a specific memory of Kobe Bryant? "I just see him turning and fading on the baseline on both sides over and over and over again," Popovich said. "People playing great D on him, and he rises up over them with that beautiful touch and he just knocks it down. I see him doing it all the time in my dreams."

Speaking of Kobe Bryant in the Spurs' pregame video tribute, guard Manu Ginobili said, "You knew that every time you were going to compete against him, you had to bring it. If not, he was going to make you look bad, that's for sure." Guard Tony Parker said, "He was for us the Michael Jordan of our generation. It was just an honor to play against him." And Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said, "He's the guy that is ready to put his foot on your throat and win at all costs every single night." In a video message directly to Bryant, Popovich said, "It's been a pleasure watching you all these years. Your competitiveness is inspiring. I hope that you're as successful in your next life as you've been in your first one. Good luck to you, man."
