The San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers rivalry in the early 2000s was intense, physical, and made for some instant classic NBA games.

From the infamous Derek Fisher ".4" shot, Phil Jackson's backhanded remarks towards the Spurs to the Spurs defeating the Lakers in the old L.A. Forum to go on to win their first NBA title in 1999, the Spurs-Lakers rivalry was must-see T.V. come the postseason.

And Kobe Bryant was a part of each game and would like to remind the masses how his Lakers teams had to face the Spurs each postseason during their dynasty run.

Kobe reacted to a Tweet proclaiming he'd have no NBA title rings if he was playing on the Heat or Cavaliers like LeBron James and had to face the likes of the Warriors and the 2013, and 2014 San Antonio squads.

Enter Kobe with an appropriate response about having to face those early 2000s Spurs' teams every postseason.

Those Spurs teams of the early 2000s were stacked!

Prime Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker were a devastating trio. David Robinson, Stephen Jackson, Steve Kerr, Malik Rose and other rounded out those teams that had to face L.A. and Kobe.
