Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and the 20 Greatest Scorers in NBA Playoff History
And here are the top 20 players with the highest career postseason scoring averages, led by the GOAT, Michael Jordan. He’s the only player to post more than 30 points a playoff game, 33.45 in 179 games.
James is already at 115 postseason games played, and the way he’s been playing, who would be surprised to see him up his average over the next few seasons, at least?
Carmelo Anthony (15th) is playing at such a clip right now as well (and just won his first NBA scoring title). Expect him to rise in the rankings after this postseason.
Kobe Bryant places 10th, beaten out by Dirk Nowitzki even, but hold on – Kobe’s played 220 playoff games, almost 100 more than Dirk (and almost 50 more than Jordan). You have to account for these sorts of things.Follow @VinGetz
