Of his many amazing playoff accomplishments, Kareem's most amazing one might be the fact that he won his two Finals MVP awards 14 years apart (1971 and 1985), a seemingly impossible feat. It spoke to Kareem's ability to provide the consistent, smooth post presence his teams needed to contend year after year, and (perhaps most importantly) his ability to stay healthy on the court. Over the course of his 20 year career, Kareem played in an NBA record 237 playoff games, with his teams missing the playoffs just twice during that time-frame. That basically means that Kareem played just shy of three extra full seasons, all at a higher intensity than regular season games. Insane.
