LeBron is not greater than Kobe, not yet.
Call me when Kobe chokes a finals away the way LeBron did against Dallas. That was possibly the biggest gag on the biggest stage I've ever seen in my lifetime.
Kobe has 5 rings and has been to 2 other finals. LeBron has one ring and been to 2 others. Kobe plays more like Jordan, while LeBron plays more like Magic really.
To be compared to Jordan, Kareem, Kobe, Magic, etc. LeBron will have to win at least 2-3 more titles in the end.
