James has and amazing record when it comes to the Playoffs. He as appeared in an astounding 266 playoff games in his career as he's only missed the postseason four times over his 19-year career.

His 174 wins also tops the charts, 13 more than Derek Fisher. His other leading category is turnovers, but that's nothing to brag about.

Can LeBron keep adding numbers in the playoffs?

Right now it seems that the Lakers will miss the playoffs for second year in a row. Everything can change if they can bring Kyrie Irving to Los Angeles, but that dream sims further and further away, as each day passes. Still LeBron will play in the NBA for at least three seasons more, having a chance to keep improving his playoffs stats.
