The Los Angeles Lakers secured a commanding 125-85 win against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference First Round Playoffs series, thus advancing to the Second Round. A notable contribution to this victory came from the legendary basketball player LeBron James, who scored 22 points, took 5 rebounds, and made 6 assists.
Moreover, with this playoff series win, LeBron James has etched his name in NBA history yet again. He has now become the all-time leader in playoff series victories with 40 out of 52 played, which amounts to a staggering 76.9% success rate.
This achievement puts him ahead of former Los Angeles Lakers playmaker Derek Fisher, who won 40 series out of 51 (78.4%). Notably, Robert Horry and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar follow them in the list with 39 out of 48 (81.3%) and 37 out of 49 (75.5%) victories, respectively.
Throughout the span of his career playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James has played in 52 playoff series. During this time, he has consistently averaged 28.6 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 7.2 assists per game, with a shooting accuracy of 49.5% from the field and 33.4% from beyond the arc.
In a remarkable feat, LeBron James has also surpassed the total number of NBA Playoffs Series victories held by the Chicago Bulls franchise. With 40 playoff series wins under his belt, he now has one more victory than the Chicago Bulls franchise, which has won 39 series throughout its history.
This is yet another testament to the legacy of LeBron James as one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
