On Friday night, LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates were knocked out of the 2019 NBA Playoffs by the Brooklyn Nets. Not only was it a devastating defeat for the west coast team, it also marks the first time James will not appear in an NBA Playoffs since 2005.

Known to occasionally share motivational posts to his social media accounts, The King has now promised Lakers fans that their playoff drought, which now stands at six seasons, will not continue. In the post shared by James, he told fans, “Believe Me. #LakerNation the spell won’t last much longer! I swear. The marathon continues.” This could also be a way for James to apologize for his less than ideal showing this season, seeing him face injury (leading to 17 straight missed games) along with the Anthony Davis Saga.

James also told CBS Sports following the loss, “Obviously, it’s been a tough season for all of us. It’s not what we signed up for. Throughout the year, things happened. Suspensions, injuries, things of that nature. And just not being able to play sustainable basketball for 48 minutes. But you don’t even try to wrap your head around it, you just keep pushing.”

Check out the post below and let us know in the comment section if you believe The King can break the Lakers spell. Friday’s 111-106 defeat has also broken LeBron’s eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances streak.
