Some gems from PART 3
 

@LakersReporter 

Last year, Kobe wasn't sure he'd go past his contract (2013-14 season). But the Achilles injury, plus watching the old Spurs, changed that.

 

Kobe: "I think the injury has something to do with it. It really increased the drive. And probably (SAS) getting so close to winning No. 5.

 

Still with rings on his mind, @kobebryant on maybe playing 3 more years: "I want to make sure I push the ring count out a little further."

 

Kobe on SAS: "A testament to what skill can do. To what us old guys can do if you play together, if you play with one mind and one purpose."

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

He doesn't seem so happy. Like he seems irritated.

So there you go, Kobe really wants 3 more years and nothing more than to pass 6 rings.

The Spurs success this year really seems to have motivated him along with this injury.  

If Kobe can remain healthy fingers crossed knock on wood, pray to everything,  and can stay at a high level.

We'll have him for another 3 years.  Cheers :)
