LeBron James knows what it’s like to come far and fall short. The basketball superstar has lost four times in the NBA Finals. So he had kind words for his Cleveland Indians after they lost Game 7 of the World Series to the Chicago Cubs.

“You guys got nothing to hang your heads low about,” James said from the game in a video to Uninterrupted early Thursday. “Use this as inspiration to get ready for next year.”

He also congratulated the Cubs. Nice.

James, of course, has also won three NBA titles, including one with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season. So his hopeful message carries extra weight. Watch his full video here:
