At the end of the day LeBron James has broken a playoff record that has stood for 20 years, that no one has broken. Jordan’s playoff scoring stats are some of the highly regarded stats in the game and LeBron, not Kobe, has surpassed it. This is a huge stat and should be celebrated, of course this doesn’t quite give LeBron dominance over Jordan overall but it should favorably add to LeBron's legacy nevertheless.
2) Scorer's Mentality :
Jordan was a bonafide scorer and that was his goal to destroy the opponent by scoring as many points as possible, LeBron has a different mentality. He is more of an all-around player and doesn’t mind passing the ball for an assist versus shooting the ball every chance he gets. Despite this, he was still able to break this record and do it rather candidly. It did take him more games to reach the feat than Jordan but that is because LeBron focuses more on passing the ball, more than Jordan ever did.
LeBron James is only 32 years old and conceivably has a lot of basketball left in the tank. So he can add to this record and make sure that it will be at least another 20-30 years before any player comes close to breaking it. Next year LeBron will pass Jordan for fourth on the All-Time scoring list which is another great feat. Records and stats serve as measuring sticks in sports, keeping fans and experts honest and positioning players where they should be in history.
