LeBron James is putting the league on notice.
On Monday afternoon, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar took to Instagram and posted a clip from ‘Gladiator’ where it said “And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
“PROMISE YOU I WILL. Count me out if you want too!”
Last week, James was eliminated from the NBA playoffs in the first round. In his 14 previous postseason appearances, that had never happened.
LeBron finished the series against the Suns averaging 23.3 points, his fourth-lowest scoring output for a series over his career and his lowest mark since averaging 22.8 in the 2014 Eastern Conference finals.
All of that and Anthony Davis being injured can be contributed to the shortest offseason in NBA history where teams who played deep into the playoffs did not get proper rest.
