Don't count my vote yet...I'll probably think of other playoff series performances and have to change it...but I just want to put one down for now...

LeBron's 2012 ECF elimination game 6 at Boston: Statistically not GOAT but if you watched it, given the narrative with the IMMENSE pressure of the "make or break career" game and the media just waiting to set LeBron on fire as soon as he loses, he responded pretty amazingly. I was in awe of what was happening during the course of the game.

MJ and Shaq had better games statistically but neither ever entered a game with that much pressure and performed like how LBJ did.

LeBron fan ignores thread premise and goes off with his own shit. Oh, I'm on ISH. Nevermind.

Duncan's Finals against the Nets was rather dominating.
23.5 ppg / 17.5 rpg / 5.8 apg / 5.5 bpg

Tim duncan drafted in 1997 and in 99 playoffs conference semi-finals has these numbers against lakers : 29ppg 10.8RPG.
Finals same year against knicks : 27.4 ppg 14 RPG. I rank these pretty high because he was only in his 2nd year in the league.

Hekeem olajuwon conference finals 1995 : 35.3PPG , 12.5 RPG, 5APG, 4.2 Blocks/game.

Lebron James ECF 2009: 38.5ppg/8.3RPG/8APG on 49% shooting.

Boston was so injured it was stupid. They had no business being in that series.
