Ever since being drafted with the 1st overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft, LeBron James has been one of the most dominating players in the league.

Some may argue that dominating players are those who won championships and rule and era, but honestly, James has been a bit of a dynasty of his own, judging by his numbers and how he owned the Eastern Conference for over a decade.

As a matter of fact, according to ESPN, LeBron James has scored more career playoff points (6,911); than 10 franchises in the league since 2004, which can tell you just how dominant he's been thus far.

  • Washington Wizards: 6,586
  • Brooklyn Nets: 6,452
  • Orlando Magic: 6,413
  • Philadephia 76ers: 5,439
  • Milwaukee Bucks: 5,382
  • New Orleans Pelicans: 4,073
  • Sacramento Kings: 2,237
  • New York Knicks: 2,176
  • Minnesota Timberwolves: 2,163
  • Charlotte Hornets: 1,342

James even made it to 8 straight trips to the NBA Finals and holds several playoff records that are unlikely to be topped any time soon.

LeBron is the all-time leader in playoff minutes (10,049), points (6,911), most 30-point games (110), most 20-point games (214), most 10-point games (237), most field goals made (2,457), most field goals attempted (5,006), most field goals missed (2,549) most free throws made (1,627), most steals (419), and most turnovers (866).

Also, The King was the youngest player to ever reach 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 4,000; 5,000; and 6,000 career points in the postseason, and obviously, he'll become the first - and only - player in NBA history to reach 7,000 career points as well.

You can like LeBron or not, but you just can't deny facts, and the fact is that he's been a post-season master for many years. He has never lost in the first round and even though his record in the Finals is far from impressive, the sole fact that he's made it that many times should tell you just enough about his greatness.
