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."

"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."

Bryant: Good memories in San Antonio

Kobe Bryant spoke about his last game against the Spurs in San Antonio and all the memories he has had in their building.

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."
