Guys With at least 3 Win Shares in At Least 5 Playoff Seasons

1Michael Jordan*19891998CHINBA8
2LeBron James20072015TOTNBA7
3Magic Johnson*19841991LALNBA6

5Wilt Chamberlain*19621972TOTNBA5
6Tim Duncan19992014SASNBA5
7Shaquille O'Neal19952004TOTNBA5

So, what you see here, once again, are my top 6 NBA players of all-time, slightly out of order (I have Magic at #6, he is #3, I have LeBron at #4, he is #2, etc.), plus Shaq (my #9 best NBA player).

If you tighten the criteria so that you also need to have a WS/48 greater than .200, you get:

7Chauncey Billups20042009TOTNBA3
8Magic Johnson*19851987LALNBA3
9Jerry West*19661969LALNBA3

My top 6 guys plus Shaq, Jerry West and Chauncey.  How about Chauncey putting up over 3 WS on the 2009 Nuggets!?!?!?  Who remembers THAT?  Not me.
