- by

Following the Los Angeles Lakers’ defeat of the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals, LeBron James continued to rise up the record books, moving into a tie for second place for the most playoff series won by a player in NBA history.

With 39 postseason series won now, James is tied with seven-time champion Robert Horry for the second-most all-time.
