On top of what’s been a stellar postseason for LeBron James and the Cavs, he’s also breaking records! His Cavaliers are 6-0 in the post season so far. In a blowout game against the Raptors where he scored 39 points, LeBron passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for second on the all-time postseason scoring list. He finished the game with 5,777 points in total.
As LeBron said before the season started, he’s chasing Micheal Jordan’s “ghost.” He’s a mere 200 points away from Jordan for the number one spot of post-season scoring. While James postseason success is legendary, going to six straight NBA Finals (perhaps on the way to seven) he’s also benefitted from the NBA changing the first round of the playoffs from a best of 5 to a best of 7 in 2003. At the same time, he’s also swept the first round the past 5 years. Averaging 34 this post season he has a chance to gain that spot this year.
