Kobe Bryant talked about the possibility of Tim Duncan tying him with five NBA titles.

"My goal is to win more than five," said Bryant. "If he does win five, hopefully that pushes our organization upstairs to be even more determined and more driven to make the necessary expenses to make sure we continue the next year and the year after that."

Bryant is confident the Lakers can compete for a title if Dwight Howard stays, but also indicated the team needs to add players with length and quickness.

"I'd love to see us pick up next season where we left off this season prior to these injuries," Bryant said. "We were playing some good basketball -- things were flowing. We'll have to make some adjustments in terms of getting a little longer, having a couple of guys on the floor who can cover ground, and cover ground quickly.  If we do those things, I like our chances."
