Antawn Jamison believes that one cannot suggest that Kobe Bryant's chances of winning another championship have gone.

Antawn Jamison has insisted that there is plenty more to come from Los Angeles Lakers veteran Kobe Bryant.

After a short spell as a free agent, former Lakers power forward Jamison agreed a deal this week to join the Los Angeles Clippers, but he refused to suggest that his ex-teammate can no longer lead a side to a championship.

"I would never count Kobe Bryant out of anything," Jamison said in a radio interview on ESPN 710. "I've played with some special players. Gilbert Arenas when he was at the top of his game, LeBron James, Shaquille O'Neal.

"I've played with a lot but never played with an individual player who had the type of mindset, the drive that he has. If [Bryant] says he's going to win a sixth ring, believe me, he's going to do everything possible to get that ring.

"Of course, on the outside looking in you could say, well, that might not happen this year or whatever with him coming off the injury and the Lakers trying to get things together. But I mean, that guy, he's going to do everything possible to get that sixth ring."

Bryant is currently recovering from an Achilles injury and is not expected to be ready for the start of the season in October.
