Statistics show LeBron James' Finals domination since he entered the NBA

Published 1 Comments

We all know LeBron James is a dominant force, but just how dominant he is may surprise you.

Since the small forward entered the league as the first draft pick in 2003, the boy from Akron has gone about making the league his own, much like Michael Jordan did during the 1990s.

The playoffs are when James really shows up, but four MVP awards should tell you all you need to know about his performances during the regular season.

The Finals are where LeBron comes into his own. The self-professed 'King' has been involved in every single Finals series since 2011 and has taken part in six of the last 10.

And since he was drafted straight out of high school, he has been nothing but dominant. Boasting a 3-4 record, James has had his ups and downs, but looking at the stats across the past 13 years, he tops almost every category.

In terms of points, he is first with 1,079 ahead of Kobe Bryant (937) and Shaquille O'Neal (753). He has recorded 396 rebounds putting him at the top above Tim Duncan (382) and Shaq (343).

When passing the rock, Tim Duncan is third (130), Kobe (187) is second and LeBron is out in front on 289 assists. His 68 made threes are ahead of Stephen Curry (57) and Ray Allen (55) while he has recorded 74 steals, leaving Kobe (65) and Dwyane Wade (53) in his wake.

Total domination.
