Last week in this space, we ranked every conference finals performance since 1986 (the first year for which Basketball-Reference.com has complete box scores), and LeBron James came out on top. That is as of Game 5 of this year's series, in which he averaged a cool 30.5 PPG, 7.5 RPG, and 5.0 APG on a 62.8 True Shooting Percentage.
