Another day, another milestone for #Lebron James. Moving up the rebounding list just seems to be a minor milestone for the King with all the other achievements compiling in the resume for the greatest Cavalier of all time.

Moving up the scoring lists, assists lists, steals lists in both the regular season and playoffs seem to catch the main headlines, but let's not ignore the brilliance of LeBron's ability to crash the boards.

This year LBJ has entered the playoffs strong and hungry with a goal in mind to lead his team back to the promise land.

He is averaging 32.7 PPG, 10.7 APG, 9.7 RPG, 2.7 SPG and 2 BPG while shooting an absurd 55.2% from the field and 47.1% from downtown in the first three games of the 2017 postseason run.

He's leading his group to a 3-0 lead over the Indiana Pacers in the first round with excellent record-breaking performances. LeBron has already achieved many milestones in just three games, and his next level rebounding ability has achieved him yet another one.

LeBron passes Unseld on NBA playoffs all-time rebounding list

LeBron James made a lot of history in game three of the first round. Not only did he pass Kobe Bryant on the scoring list, and the three-pointers for the postseason, along with a record-breaking stat line of 41-13-12, but he also moved past #Wes Unseld for 7th place in the NBA playoffs all-time rebounds list.

#King James only just recently passed Robert Parish in the same list, and now he's moved up yet another spot.

His 4th rebound in the Cavaliers-Pacers game three was the one that achieved this milestone, a game where the King pulled down 13 boards.

LeBron has a way to go before he hopes to reach the number one spot on this list, Bill Russell holds that spot with 4,104 career playoff rebounds. Then the rest follows as the second being Wilt Chamberlain with 3,913, Tim Duncan comes next with 2,859, Shaquille O'Neal with 2,508, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 2,481 followed by Karl Malone with 2,062 boards and then there's LeBron, sitting at 1,787 career playoff rebounds. The crazy statistic in this is that LeBron is the shortest player in the top 7. He uses his great athleticism to grab rebounds over bigger opponents.

LeBron can make rebounding history

Even though he's 6"8', and a small forward, LeBron James stands alone when compared to other players of his position and height. LeBron is just 213 playoff rebounds away from being the 7th player in NBA history to reach 2,000 postseason rebounds, an accomplishment that should be honored.

King James is third all-time in regular season rebounding and first in playoff rebounding for small forwards, showing he is one of the most versatile players from his position in NBA history.
