He overtook both Derek Fisher and Tim Duncan during his 2020 postseason run with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Here's a look at the top 10 players with the most playoff wins in NBA history:

9 Kobe Bryant 135 220 61.36%
10 Shaquille O'Neal 129 216 59.72%

James not only has the most playoff wins ever but he also the best winning percentage, at least among the top 10 players with Scottie Pippen being a close second.

His run of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances from 2011 to 2018, where he registered a playoff win-loss record of 114-54, played a huge role in him ranking so high on this list.
