Spurs PG Tony Parker was possibly going to miss France's Olympic qualifying tourney because of the expected birth of his son in July, but he said his wife is making a "big sacrifice" and told him he "better bring a medal back."

Tony Parker faked out Roy Hibbert while driving to the basket, causing the Los Angeles Lakers center to fall and suffer a sprained ankle that put him out for the game. Parker missed the layup after the nifty move, but blamed it on his concern for Hibbert. "Yeah, it surprised me. That's why I missed the layup," Parker said, laughing. "I felt so bad for him. I was like, Oh my God.' Like I felt bad for him. And Kobe [Bryant] told me he was like out, I was like, Aww. Sorry' That's why I missed the layup. I didn't expect [him to] fall like that."

Kobe Bryant said the Spurs helped teach him discipline: " When I first came in the league, I played off a lot of emotion, played with a lot of rage. But to beat San Antonio  I mean, the year we got swept [by them] in '99 really showed me another level of the game in terms of the kind of coldness with which they played, the disciplined that they played with. That's when I realized that I've got to get my game to that level and get it there now."

Kobe Bryant on Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: "One of my favorite times I spent with him was during an All-Star Game when he was coaching, and he came up to me right before practice and he said, Hey, should I do a real practice or should I do a 'whatever-walkthrough' All-Star practice?' I said, No, you've got to do a real practice, because I want to see what the hell goes on down there in San Antonio. So you've got to do all the real stuff.' So he lined the guys up, put the guys through it and guys are kind of looking around like, What the hell?' And Tim [Duncan] just looked at me like, Dude, you're killing me.' [I said], Well, I want to see. I want to see what goes on.'"

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."

In a moving video tribute prior to Kobe Bryant's final game in San Antonio, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all spoke about facing Bryant over the years. "Whether you were up 20 or down 10 or whatever it may be," Duncan said, "you knew that he was someone you had to keep an eye on, you had to worry about, you had to fear, because he was going to bring it."

Kobe Bryant just got a nice tribute video and a "Kobe-Kobe" chant from the crowd here at the AT&T Center.

Kobe Bryant on how the San Antonio Spurs elevated his game: "Their discipline. When I first came into the league, I played off a lot of emotion. I played with a lot of rage. But the year we got swept in '99, it really showed me another level of the game in terms of the coldness in which they played, and the discipline they played with. That's when I realized I've got to get my game to that level, and I've got to get there now. They helped me find that next level of discipline."
