LeBron James has accomplished superhuman feats on the basketball court, but even he can’t bend reality in favor of his Los Angeles Lakers with 15 games remaining in the regular season. 

The Lakers are 31-36 and 6.5 games behind the Utah Jazz for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Speaking to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin on Tuesday, James admitted to seeing what everybody else watching the NBA is seeing.

“It looks like our chances are slim to none after each and every game, and so many teams in the West are playing well,” he said. “So you try to get better, but this won’t be the last time I’ll be in the postseason.”

With the Lakers set to miss the postseason, James’ streak of appearing in eight consecutive NBA Finals will come to an end.
