Back in the early 2000's, the rivalry between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers was at epic proportions. Both teams had to go through one another en route to the NBA Finals as they competed for Western Conference supremacy. There was no love lost between the two squads and when they did meet in the playoffs, it was sure to be a series for the ages. It was Kobe, Shaq, and Phil Jackson versus Tim Duncan, David Robinson and Gregg Popovich. Talk about star power clashing on the biggest basketball stage. So when in 2000 when former Lakers coach Phil Jackson was the head coach of the Western Conference All-Star team, and David Robinson was on the squad, did Robinson purposely leave Jackson hanging during player introductions? Check it out. OK so it was funny how Jackson looked stunned when Robinson didn't shake his hand but I highly doubt Robinson did it on purpose. Not only is he a stand up guy, he also didn't shake hands with the rest of the coaching staff. I am sure if you ask David about this he'd probably say he doesn't remember or just simply say it was an accident. But still, seeing Phil's reaction is priceless considering he isn't well liked among Spurs fans with his past verbal shots about San Antonio.
