The Houston Rockets’ official Twitter account ensured on Sunday night that every game the team plays against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the rest of the year will be very interesting indeed.

LeBron, by the way, missed two key free throws with his team down 103-104 and just 4.2 seconds left in overtime. Later that night, he dealt with the sting of defeat the same way we all do: by posting an intimate selfie to Instagram along with a motivational screed about overcoming adversity:
Looking in the mirror tonight after a tough lost of my part like You’re your biggest challenge, competition, drive, obstacle, motivation, etc so it’s nothing u haven’t seen before! Back in the lab tomorrow to continue the drive to striving to be the Greatest I’ve ever seen! #StriveForGreatness >A photo posted by LeBron James (@kingjames) on Mar 1, 2015 at 8:32pm PSTLong live The King.
