As of right now it certainly is Kobe Bryant just by the sheer amount of NBA championships he has taken down. If you are looking at other factors than many people will change their nba picks if Lebron James starts winning a lot of rings with the heat over the next 3-5 years.
i watch basketball but to tell the truth lebron is better because he's a better athlete and he can score ! kobe has 5 rings because of dominant big men he has had (shaq,gasol,horry) but what happend when kobe didn't have a big man same results as lebron 40 win team didn't make the playoffs or lost in the first round so now lebron has the peices that kobe has had in the past so crown the heat champs this year !!!!!!
Believes their's only one man that has truly dominated the sport of basketball and that's MJ!! However, to respond to the question Kobe, is the leagues air apparent simply, because he's several years ahead of LB pertaining to the mental-side of the game not to mention the rings. However, in the next few years I see LB controlling his total environments something like MJ use to. LB, might not get as many rings as Kobe but he will surely shatter the record books if he stay healthy and out of trouble.
