Not in the positive, "inspired" sense, but out of Kobe's pathological competitiveness/jealous manner, of course.
Per http://www.nba.com/lakers/news/130701kobebryant_legacy :
"Bryant has gone back and forth about how many more years he wants to play in recent years, even suggesting at various times last season that he'd considered hanging it up after his contract expired at the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
Apparently, Bryant has changed his mind, firmly stating that he's thinking of playing at least three more years.
I feel pretty damn confident I can be at a high level for at least another three years. I feel like how I was playing last year – I know I'll be healthy and I'll be ready to go this year – I know what I can bring. And I think I can easily do that for another three years. I think the (Achilles) injury has something to do with it. It really increased the drive. And probably San Antonio getting so close to winning No. 5, probably hurt me a little bit too. I want to make sure I push the ring count out a little further. It was really, really close there. They played phenomenally well. But it's 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 you can accomplish great things. It was inspirational for me and hopefully inspirational for the city of Los Angeles and this organization of what we can do, how this tide can change fairly quickly and we'll be looking at a parade."
