Kobe Bryant Hopes A Spurs Victory Pushes Lakers Organization

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Denver NuggetsAfter the San Antonio Spurs defeated the defending champion Miami Heat in the first game of the NBA Finals last night, the thoughts running through Lakers fans’ minds were the Spurs were closer to their fifth championship.

With a Spurs victory, forward Tim Duncan would match Kobe Bryant with five championships, and an argument could be made that Duncan is this generation’s best player.

However, talking to Stephen A. Smith on ESPNRadio New York, Bryant said if the Spurs do win, he hopes Lakers management takes notice:

“It doesn’t really matter. My goal is to win more then five, if he does win more than five it pushes our organization upstairs to be more driven to make the necessary experiences to continue for the next few years”

Bryant’s season ended early as he tore his Achilles against the Golden State Warriors and was out for the season, but he’s clearly talking about the team making some changes.

The Lakers will spend the beginning part of the off-season waiting on free agent center Dwight Howard and his decision before looking at any trades or free agents.

Clearly, Bryant is intent on coming back stronger than ever next season, which should bode well for the Lakers granted they make the necessary changes this summer.
