    LeBron James ends social media silence, thanks fans and makes ‘PROMISE to get better’

    Jun 24, 2015

    LEBRON James has ended his self-imposed absence on social media to thank his fans after the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals.

    The four-time NBA MVP shared a photo on his Facebook account of smiling kids in an amusement park ride with a two-paragraph message on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).

    Despite being a lightning rod of criticism, James practically carried an undermanned Cavs team on his back with a stellar all-around performance that fell short, especially in the absence of injured teammates Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Anderson Varejao.

    “It hurt to lose. I’ve been in a funk lately but this… this is what motivates me to do what I do. How can I ever be down when I know my kids and my fans have my back?,” James said.

    “Being back home and back with my fans is everything that I dreamed of. Thank you for an incredible season. I’m not satisfied… I’m not happy with the way things turned out… I PROMISE to get better,” he added to his 21 million followers on the popular social media website.

    James ended  the post with the hashtags #StriveForGreatness #ILoveTheseKids #GodBlessOurFans

    The post that has garnered more than 158,000 ‘Likes’ and has been shared more than 6,500 times.
