Kobe Bryant vs Lebron James in their respective playoff runs

From 2008-2010, the Los Angeles Lakers, lead by Kobe Bryant, made the NBA Finals for 3 straight years.  The Lakers lost their first finals series in 6 games, they won their 2nd series in 5 games, and won their 3rd series in 7 games.  During these 3 years, the Lakers played  67 total playoff games.

From 2011-2013, the Miami Heat, lead by Lebron James, made the NBA Finals for 3 straight years.  The Heat lost their first finals series in 6 games, they won their 2nd series in 5 games, and won their 3rd series in 7 games.  During these 3 years, the Heat played  67 total playoff games.

Kind of freaky, isn’t it?  But an exactly even sample size means we can  compare Kobe & Lebron’s playoff stats during their respective runs :)

Kobe’s Playoff Averages 

  • 29.8 ppg
  • 5.5 apg
  • 5.67 rpg
  • 46.4% FG
  • 34.4% 3FG
  • 84.5% FT

Lebron’s Playoff Averages

  • 26.7 ppg
  • 6 apg
  • 8.85 rpg
  • 48.7% FG
  • 33% 3FG
  • 75.7% FT

Interesting Notes

  • Lebron had 5 triple doubles during his run, Kobe had 0
  • During Kobe’s run, he had 26 games with 25+ points and 5+ assists, in half of those games he shot over 50% from the field.
  • During Lebron’s run, he had 27 games with 25+ points and 5+ assists, 13 of which saw him shoot over 50% 
  • During Kobe’s run he scored 30+ points 41 times, he did so on 50% shooting or better 18 times.  He did so on on 47% shooting or better 26 times.
  • During Lebron’s run he scored 30+ points 26 times, he did so on 50% shooting or better 15 times.  He did so on 47% or better 16 times.

So don’t let somebody skew the narrative and say that these two don’t have comparable numbers, as you can see, they’re actually extremely similar.  Interestingly enough, Kobe’s run ended just as people began to unanimously crown Lebron the greatest player in the league (also just as Lebron joined another top 5 player in the league, but I digress.)

One of the greatest beats I’ve ever heard.  Everything about it is great.  It’s kind of creepy and unsettling, but in the best way possible.
