Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal won three NBA championships together during their time with the Los Angeles Lakers, but one moment from the 2002 Western Conference Finals against the Sacramento Kings stood out for Kobe.

He said during a Players Only interview with O'Neal that aired Saturday on TNT his favorite moment with the center was after Game 7 of the series when the Lakers were leaving ARCO Arena as Western Conference champions.

O'Neal said some of the Sacramento fans were mooning the Lakers before the game, so the Los Angeles players returned the deed on the bus after the victory.

It was a memorable battle that lasted seven games, and some Kings fans likely remember more than just the basketball if they looked at the Lakers' bus.
