Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is playing Game3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets and he actually hit another playoff record. This is LeBron’s 252 career playoff game which puts him in second place in the all-time playoff games list. The four-time NBA MVP has just broken ties with NBA icon Tim Duncan.
LeBron is the only active player in the Top 5 of most playoff games played. Derek Fisher has the first position with his 259 games. LeBron can easily hit that record if his team enters the deep playoff run. Duncan is in third place, and Robert Horry comes fourth. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has position No. 5.
LeBron is in his 17th NBA season. His teams haven’t made the playoffs in three occasions. The king missed the playoff run in his first two years with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The third time happened in his debut season with the Los Angeles Lakers.
LeBron to hit another playoff record
King James made eight straight NBA Finals appearances from 2011 to 2018. He led the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals in 2007 all by himself.
Fisher had most of his playoff time with the Lakers. He was a key player of the Lakers three-peat with late Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. In the period between 2008 and 2010, Fisher joined Kobe in the process of winning back-to-back titles. Fisher also had a key role with the Utah Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Oklahoma even made the NBA Finals in 2012.
From what we can see, LeBron is definitely taking the number one spot this season. That will be just another record for the king of basketball. LeBron has helped the Lakers make the top of the West and now they are trying to win the Western Conference Finals. This puts the team in an ideal position to win the championship for the first time in a decade. LeBron and Anthony Davis carry the team, and their chemistry has helped the team come this far.
