Lakers > Celtics. Kobe = Jordan?

Kobe Bryant tonight will do something Michael Jordan never did: Win a Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

I know the simpleton argument is that Jordan was so good his Chicago Bulls were never pushed to the brink. Nonetheless, Kobe's feat in this series - Most Valuable Player, rallying his team from a 3-2 deficit - further closes the gap between him and the greatest player to ever put on sneakers.

I'm assuming Bryant is the leading scorer and the Lakers win - why stop now, I'm on a roll - and he captures his fifth championship ring.

Not if, but when this happens ...    

Is Kobe on a level equal to or greater than Jordan?
