Summary

And removing the last three of his postseason trips, which is a reasonable thought exercise since they came at ages 39, 40 and 41, he averaged 27.3 points in 180 appearances.His skyhook devastated teams for two decades.Kareem retired as the NBA's all-time leading playoff scorer (5,762) and is still third behind LeBron James and Michael Jordan.The career stats for Shaquille O'Neal are impressive, but his production from 1995-2003, in particular, was remarkable.While totaling 133 playoff appearances for the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers in that stretch, Shaq tallied 28.3 points per game. But the point remains: West had legendary scoring upside.The Hall of Fame guard averaged 29.1 points in his 153 appearances, winning a title in 1972 and earning the rare distinction of Finals MVP in the 1969 series the Lakers lost.Jordan (38) and LeBron James (27) are the only players with more 40-point playoff games than West and his 20.No matter what his future holds with the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James has already established himself as a top-two playoff performer.He carried the 2006-07 Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals.
