8. No. 3 All-Time Career Playoff Points

NBA: New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers

While achieving regular season goals are nice, it is success in the postseason that James clearly desires most. His herculean performance in last season’s NBA Finals showed us that when needed, James can and will produce like no other player in the NBA.

While the Cavaliers hope the burden will be nowhere near as heavy in this year’s postseason, James will still be called upon to score points. At 5,020 points scored in his playoff career, James currently ranks 6th all-time. Assuming Cleveland makes a deep run in the playoffs, James should move into 3rd place on the list, passing long-time rival Kobe Bryant. He will need to amass 621 points in order to move into third on the list, which would be the second highest total of his 11 trips to the postseason.
