Kobe Bryant and LeBron James on the same team in 2014? One of them doesn't think it's too much of a "stretch".

LA Lakers legend Bryant was speaking to LakersNation.com when asked about the rumours circling that four-time MVP James could quit the Miami Heat for Hollywood next summer.

James, a two-time NBA champion on South Beach, may be a free agent at the end of next season.

To be fair, Bryant, who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon, allowed a wry smile when answering Serena Winters question - would James really want to join the Lakers to help Bryant win more Championship rings?

The Lakers shooting guard has his eye on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's all-time scoring record, and wants to add to his five rings.

His side, having lost Dwight Howard to free agency this summer, don't stand a great chance of even making the playoffs next term - especially with Bryant expected to be on the sidelines for the majority of the campaign.

But that could set them up for a run at one of the superstar free agents set to hit the open market next summer. Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade, as well as James, all have contracts that expire at the end of next season.

But Bryant said: "You don't want to help someone else kind of increase their ring count. But he's [James] already increased Dwyane's, so I don't think it's that big of a stretch."

He then refused to speculate on James's potential destinations - that's frowned upon by NBA commissioner David Stern.
