After taking his Los Angeles Lakers to the 2021 NBA playoffs, LeBron James is ready to continue the journey to defend the NBA championship. The purple and gold will face the Phoenix Suns in the first round, which is expected to be a very entertaining series. 

The King is ready to start the new season with the Lakers and he's taking to social media to reveal his mindset over this upcoming playoffs and the sacrifices he's willing to make for his team's sake. 

James quoted Theodore Roosevelt on Instagram, sharing an inspiring and powerful message for those who go all-in to reach their goals, and even if they fail, they know they gave their all. 

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." “THE MAN IN THE ARENA” 🏟 #ThekidfromAKRON🤴🏾 #JamesGang👑 #SFG🚀 P.S. There’s nothing like being a Laker!

This is playoffs LeBron getting activated. The King is ready to prove the doubters wrong with the Lakers, once again. He's a man on a mission and his team looks very dangerous ahead of the postseason.
