LeBron James Passes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for All-Time Playoff FG Record

LeBron James’ two game-winning buzzer-beaters these playoffs might be more memorable, but his jump shot midway through the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday was the most historic.

The 22-foot jumper off a JR Smith feed was the 2,357th made field goal of James’ postseason career, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time lead in that category.

“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs — it’s pretty cool,” James said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”

Mike D’Antoni: Carmelo Anthony ‘a lot better fit’ with Rockets

Houston coach Mike D’Antoni, who walked away from the New York Knicks post because of Carmelo Anthony, now will welcome him onto his Rockets team that needs their sordid past to be, well, just that.

No more hard feelings over their infamous split in March 2012, when D’Antoni was so tired of trying to convince Anthony to play power forward that he resigned with more than a month left in the regular season. No more dissecting how it all went down, as D’Antoni has several times in recent years by sharing that it was Anthony’s ultimatum to Knicks management that inspired his exit.

“Back then, there wasn’t even analytics. I was going by my gut, and he was going by (his) gut, and it’s just, you know, styles clash. And I think now, things have changed and everybody is playing the same way. I think it’s a lot better fit and I think we have a really good chance to be really good.”
