It wouldn't automatically make him G.O.A.T.

Depends on how well he played in the Finals to get those rings and how stacked the squad was.

Jordan secretly thinks Russell is better than he is...that bitch revoked his G.O.A.T status. The Greatest should be someone who wants to be the greatest.

MJ has 6 rings, and 6 Finals MVPs.

Kobe would have 7 rings, and what 2 Finals MVPs, maybe 3?

I don't think so

So assuming he's the best player on those championship teams, he would have 7 rings and 4 Finals MVPs, then maybe you can make an argument.

If he wins 2 more rings as a compliment or role player, then nope.

but assuming he wins 2 more FMVP's, that would bring his total to 4FMVPs, more than Duncan, Magic, Bird, and Shaq.....

In my opinion he wouldn't be the GOAT even with 7 rings. Rings are not the sole determinant of where a player ranks on the all time list for me. However if you value winning/only look at things for a winning rings standpoint then Kobe would only rank behind Bill Russell if he were to win 7 rings. Kobe would be solidified in the top 6 with 6 rings (Kareem, Jordan, Russell, Bird, Shaq). With 7 rings he's top 3 or 4. But IMO he can never surpass Kareem and Jordan, who simply were significantly better players than he is, in addition to having better resumes.

Right now most people have him in the top 3 or 5 all time..

Being one of the most unbiased Kobe fans here, Winning just a 7th ring would not change his rank as a top 3 all time.. I think he need a dominant season and playoff in order for him to tie MJ as the GOAT not just a championship..

1 MVP lol Jordan has 5

And Jordan has 10 scoring titles.

Rings are a team accomplishment. MVP's and scoring titles are awarded to individuals.

And Kobe is lacking compared to MJ.

I think 8 titles and 4 FMVP would put him up there... not many people have 4 FMVPs and 8 would put him in russell like category.
