Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

David Blatt on his memories of Kobe Bryant from the 2008 Olympics: "Kobe was really gracious. He came right up and introduced himself, said hello and we talked for a couple minutes. Hes been one of the great players in our game for a long time and certainly on of the NBAs greatest, an iconic figure in the world of Lakers basketball and NBA basketball. What a career. What can you say about a guy who has been a part of five championship teams and has had all the wonderful accomplishments and moments and plays that hes made in his career? If he has decided what he has decided then I think its great and hes one of those guys that will be remembered. No doubt.
