Playoffs all-time leaderboard for blocks
In his last series against the Boston Celtics, LeBron James overtook Michael Jordan as the all-time leader for career playoff points scored in the NBA. And he’s still moving up in rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
But unless he averages 28 boards per game and makes it at least a six game series, he will not catch Karl Malone on the leaderboard for rebounds (not this year at least). And unless he dishes out 58 assists per game in a six game series (which he won’t), he will not catch John Stockton on the leaderboard for assists.
However, he is only trailing Mark Eaton by six blocks on the all time playoff leaderboard. My prediction is that he will catch Eaton this finals series.

So while Episode III of Cavs-Warriors may be getting a little redundant and it’s disappointing that the Utah Jazz themselves aren’t in the Finals, there’s still plenty of reasons for Jazz fans to tune in and keep track of what goes on this year’s NBA Finals.
