That is a milestone.
In the third quarter of the Cavaliers comfortable win over the Raptors in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron James hit a layup that moved him past Shaquille O’Neal into fourth on the all-time NBA playoff scoring list. LeBron now has 5,255 playoff points (and he did it in 28 fewer games and fewer minutes than Shaq). It speaks to LeBron’s durability and how long he has played at a high level — Shaq was a dominant playoff force, to pass him is an impressive feat.
Next up on the list is Kobe Bryant, but LeBron has 385 points to go to get there.
