Despite having a reputation of being a playoff choker, LeBron James leads all players in playoff scoring in 2012.

His 2012 playoff stat line of...

29.9 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 5.5 APG, 2.1 SPG 74.3 FT%

is nothing to sneeze at. And compares favorably to Karl Malone who I've been comparing him to this playoff.

Karl Malone's playoff stats (193 games)

24.7 PPG, 10.7 RPG, 3.2 APG, 73.6 FT%

LeBron's 3,026 playoff points has him at #19 on the all time playoff scoring list directly ahead of first ballot HOFers like James Worthy, Clyde Drexler, Reggie Miller, and Charles Barkley. Think about that for a second, all the great moments and playoff games those guys have had in their careers, LeBron at 27 has already surpassed them.

His playoff career scoring average of 28.8 rests at #4 all time behind Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, & Jerry West (all 3 HOFers or soon to be)

Title this year or not, LeBron is already a first ballot HOFer and is only adding to his legacy the closer he gets to a championship. And the reputation of "playoff choker" doesnt hold up.

In 1991, LeBron's GM Pat Riley sat down and interviewed Michael Jordan (28 years old). In this interview before his first championship Jordan explains how winning a title doesnt define him and how not winning one "wouldn't tarnish his career".

So basically your argument is Jordan didn't win his titles completely by himself? Scottie Pippen & Dennis Rodman are the only two good players Jordan ever had. John Paxton, Steve Kerr, Tony Kukoc, Bill Weddington, Luc Longley, etc. LOL

Wade & Bosh > Pippen & Rodman

& Rodman was only around for the 2nd 3-peat. Other than those two guys Jordan was surrounded by scrubs. LeBron can put up all the big numbers he wants but when it's crunch time he needs Wade or Bosh to carry him because he can't.

Jordan was 1-9 without Pippen in his early career, and never made the playoffs without him later in his career. Please keep the hillbilly UNC homer troll stuff in the appropiate forum (college basketball).

I would love to see LeBron lead the Wizards to the playoffs surrounded by scrubs at age 42.

Hillbilly? I'll post wherever I want you black turd.

Did you actually just call someone a "dork"? That is hilarious. You are either 12 years old....or have the mental capacity of a 12 yo. I am betting on the latter.

I heard that you definitely wanted my 1/2 penny.....heard that your welfare check had not yet arrived this month.

As for not giving two shits about someone's opinion....have you not figured out that there are only about 3 people on this MB that gives two shits about yours? To the rest of us you are nothing but a sad and angry little man.

Farm hands? I'm pretty sure you're the one whose ancestors picked cotton.
