#Lebron James is currently sitting in his 12th playoff run of his career at age 32. He has averaged a breathtaking 28.0 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 6.8 APG, 1.8 APG and 0.9 BPG on 47.8% shooting from a range of 200 games played.
A total of 5,604 playoff points has him ranked fourth all time, 1,764 rebounds has him ranked ninth, 1,361 assists has him ranked third, 357 steals has him ranked third and 186 blocks has him at the 21st position. LeBron's career in the playoffs so far has been remarkable, and he is on pace to make it even more special. This milestone he's set to achieve will put him ahead of the great, Kobe Bean Bryant..
LeBron set to pass The Black Mamba in playoff points
LeBron James and #Kobe Bryant have had their history. Facing off in many great battles during the regular season, but disappointingly never seeing each other in the #Nba Finals. Either the Mamba or the King has been in each of the last ten, yes ten NBA Finals, and while being in the opposite conferences, they've never met.
As of right now, fourth place LeBron James (5,604) is sitting 36 points behind third place Kobe Bryant (5,640) on the NBA playoffs all-time scoring list. Meaning LeBron needs just 37 points to pass Mr. Bryant on the illustrious list.
There is somewhat of a chance that The Chosen One can achieve this feat in game two against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. He just came off a 32-point game in game one of the series and may be looking to do even more scoring damage in game two..
More than likely game three
While we are hopeful that LeBron James can achieve this historic feat in his next game, it will more than likely happen in game three of the first round against the Indiana Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. LeBron's 28pt average for his postseason career has the statistics telling us he'll do it in game three, as 37 points in game two might be a bit of a lunge for LeBron.
But don't doubt the King, he is known for big performances, and on any given night the man can drop 40 or more points. I mean, this is the same guy that almost averaged 40 points per game during the 2015 NBA finals run, where he led an injured team to a 6-game series loss to the Golden State Warriors. The team he got vengeance against the next year with a healthy ball club, led by the King then Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.
At the end of the day, either way, what we do know is that the likelihood is that the King will be breaking another record in the next week, and cementing his legacy with even more achievements.
