The way Kobe plays, he's the closest thing since Jordan. Is MJ better all time, sure, that's clear.
But Kobe is still Top 10 and has his OWN legacy he's created. Both are two of the greatest I've seen and two of the all time great clutch players.
By the way....Kobe has 5 rings, so he could win his 6th, not his 5th.
