Although LeBron James is in the midst of his 17th year at the ripe NBA age of 35, he only shows the slightest signs of aging. His growth as a player still continues to grow at a much more rapid rate than that aging, as the accolades are really starting to pile up for The King. He has another accomplishment to add to the list now, becoming the NBA’s all-time leader in postseason wins (breaking his tie at 161 with Derek Fisher). 

No one, not Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, not Magic Johnson, not Larry Bird, not even Michael Jordan has more postseason wins than LeBron after tonight’s Game 3 Lakers win over the Rockets. He had 36 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in a monster game where LeBron was going off very early on. He continues to build on his legacy of being one of the NBA’s greatest players ever, if not the greatest. He’s been especially impressive in the postseason in his career, with his career marks coming into tonight’s game below.

Coming into tonight, LeBron was averaging 26.4 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 9.6 assists in the 2020 NBA Playoffs. Let’s hope for LeBron’s fourth championship game this year to add to his resume.
