LeBron James will miss for the first time in fourteen years the play-offs in the NBA. The star is with his team Los Angeles Lakers outgunned for the battle for the title after the 106-111-defeat against the Brooklyn Nets.
It is for the Lakers is already the sixth year in a row that the play-offs are not met. The hexadecimal champion drew this a negative clubrecord, because never before was there such a long time to the NBA title over it.
The defeat on Friday was the 41st of the season and the twelfth in the past fourteen duels. Despite the arrival of James, the team with ten more duels to go even worse than last year.
James had in the final stage, the chances of the Lakers at the same height. He had the ball in his hands with 22 seconds to go, but slipped out. The chance to equalize – and thus extra time to force the issue – she was desperate.

James eight years in a row in final
The 34-year-old James, who in the last eight years in a row a spot in the finals of the NBA stood, spoke, after the end of a tough season. “This is not what I came for am,” sighed he. “But it is never a guarantee that you will get to the play-offs. It is a matter of hard work.”
The chance is great that the team there next season, a total different look and feel. The contract of seven of the fourteen players runs off. It seems plausible that many other players in the last ten games get the chance.
James expects less to play. “I’ll go with the coaches and my trainer talking, but I love this game. I hate it that I was five months not in action, so hopefully I can still get as much as possible to play.”
