Kobe Bryant remains confident that the LA Lakers can capture the NBA championship, despite their terrible start to the season.

The legendary guard, who only returned last week after seven months out injured with an Achilles injury, was influential in the Lakers' 88-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats and believes that the aim to be the best franchise around hasn't changed.

Allaying fears that it might take him weeks to return to his usually superb form, the Bryant that netted 21 points against Charlotte looked far more composed than the one who had taken to the court during the Lakers' consecutive losses against the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and Oklahoma City.

And the 35-year-old has now set his sights on overturning his teams poor form and making a comeback in time to reach the play-offs.

"I want to win a championship," he said. "I want to be playing in June."

The former MVP acknowledged that there was plenty of work to be done if the Lakers were to stand any chance of winning the NBA.

"Obviously, we have some improvements to make, whether it's with the guys that we have in the locker room or whatever the management wants to do," he said.

"It's not my job to focus on that. It's my job to focus on what we have and making sure we make the necessary improvements every day to get there."
