Because otherwise it would be unfair to players who failed to make the postseason playoffs. An average player on a good team would be able to increase their stats, while a better player with the misfortune to be on a poor team could easily wind up with lower career stats.

Do NFL preseason stats count towards a player's career totals?

No. A player's statistics will be broken down into regular season and postseason but not preseason. Preseason games are considered practice and a time to find out who will make the team. Many players play in preseason games that don't make the team or would get limited playing time if they do make the team. So preseason statistics do not count towards career totals. Quite frankly, I don't know if any team even keeps historical preseason statistical data.


Are points scored in playoffs added to the nba all time scores list?

They are still points, aren't they? Yes, they are added. Correction: Actually no, points scored in nba playoff games are not added to the total points scored in a players career. Career points scored for a player usually only refers to the regular season and does not include the nba postseason or aka playoffs. It is because technically playoff games are considered exhibition games, so while stats are also kept for these exhibition games the exhibition games do not count towards a players career total. For example the nba all-star game is also an exhibition game, so any points scored during the all star game will not count towards a players point total for the season or his career. Same goes for rebounds, blocks, assists, etc.
