Greatest aspect of MJs all-time PO scoring record is he did it in '80s & '90s when players couldnt score in POs against the "jordan rules", knicks D, Heat D, Pacers D etc etc.
Kobe can score all he wants by pusing First round series to 7 games against defenseless denver & boost up his scoring ave to 31.5 ppgs.
reality is no one cares, He seriously lacks playoffs cinematic moments like GOAT has given us.
Kobe also missing POs in his peak & exiting early after 3-1 lead against Suns in prie peak yrs will cost him dearly as LBJ is on his heals ready to break all the all-time PO scoring ever gonna be set by Kobe.
Durant is heading in same direction too.
I guess it cancels out the league going to a best of five format so Jordan could break the record.
