It's also surprising to find out how rare 30+ ppg playoff runs on title teams have been. These are the only ones unless I'm forgetting someone.
1.1993 Michael Jordan- 35.1 ppg
2.1992 Michael Jordan- 34.5 ppg
3.1995 Hakeem Olajuwon- 33 ppg
4.1998 Michael Jordan- 32.4 ppg
5.1980 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar- 31.9 ppg
6.1991 Michael Jordan- 31.1 ppg
7.1997 Michael Jordan- 31.1 ppg
8.2000 Shaquille O'Neal- 30.7 ppg
9.1996 Michael Jordan- 30.7 ppg
10.2000 Shaquille O'Neal- 30.4 ppg
11.2009 Kobe Bryant- 30.2 ppg
Amazing that only 5 players have done it, and I didn't know that Hakeem's 33 ppg in '95 was the 3rd highest scoring average ever in a championship playoff run.
