3. Six Consecutive Years of Highest Player Efficiency Rating

Lebron-James-Heat-Cavs

For those who place more stock in analytics than the opinions of various media members, take a look at what James accomplished beginning with the 2007-08 season. His field goals made and missed, along with steals and turnovers, in a per-minute measure was the best of anyone six years running. The only player ever with a comparable stretch was Jordan, who had the top PER seven years in a row beginning before the Chicago Bulls won their first of six championships. James’ 27.66 career mark is second only to that of Jordan (27.9).

In leading the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 victories, Curry had a career-best PER of 31.56 this season. Impressive, but check back in 2021 to see how he stacks up to James.
