NBA Playoffs: All-time leaders in postseason career rebounds

The two towering dominant centers of the 1960s - Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain - hold nearly every 'rebounding' record there is, whether that's regular season, playoffs, single game, season average, or even career totals.

So, it should come as no surprise to see these two Hall of Fame legends atop the leaderboard for playoff career rebounds.

Here's a look at the top 10 players on the all-time playoff career rebounds list:

Rank Player Career Rebounds
1 Bill Russell 4,104
2 Wilt Chamberlain 3,913
3 Tim Duncan 2,859
4 Shaquille O'Neal 2,508
5 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 2,481
6 LeBron James 2,122
7 Karl Malone 2,062
8 Wes Unseld 1,777
9 Robert Parish 1,765
10 Elgin Baylor 1,724

LeBron James, the only active player on this list, ranks sixth with 2,122 career rebounds. The next active player is James' current teammate with the Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard, who ranks 25th all-time with 1,315 rebounds.

Prior to the 2020 playoffs, the other active players in the top 50 of this list are Pau Gasol (1,246, 32nd), Draymond Green (1,149, 37th), and Kevin Durant (1,071, 44th).
