For better or worse, Spurs fans are familiar with the genius of Kobe Bryant’s game. During his prime with the Lakers, Bryant tormented Tim Duncan and company, often with Phil Jackson smiling smugly on the sideline. Whether paired with Shaquille O’Neal or Andrew Bynum, some of Bryant’s best games came against the Spurs, often in the playoffs. Duncan triumphed in 2003, doing his part to help end that Lakers dynasty. In fitting fashion, Bryant’s impending exit effectively opens the door for San Antonio native Jordan Clarkson, one of the most talented young guards in the league.
