VIDEO: Kobe Would Not Be OK With Duncan Winning His Sixth Ring

After an absolutely dominant performance, the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat, netting Tim Duncan his fifth NBA championship. That ties him with Kobe Bryant as the two battle over the claim of best player in the post-Michael Jordan era.

Kobe Bryant has made no secret about his desire to win a sixth championship before he retires. But with the Spurs having a much better roster right now, it seems far more likely that Duncan could win his sixth ring before Bryant, something that would not sit well with Kobe according to the LA Daily News’ Mark Medina:

If you ask me if I’m okay with Tim doing it, I’m not,” Bryant said. “I’m not okay with that”

This comment should come as no surprise to anyone as Bryant’s competitive streak is on par with anyone in the history of sports. Bryant will stop at nothing to get another championship and he would gladly go through Duncan to do it.

The road to getting back to the Finals will be a tough one for Bryant. The Lakers still do not have a coach, have very little to offer a team in a trade with only four players under contract, and their seventh pick overall.

Duncan is in the position to overtake Bryant next season if the Spurs can keep on the pace that they have been going, but Bryant will not be going down without a fight — that much can be guaranteed.
