Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James knows a thing or two about ending droughts in Cleveland, and after the Cleveland Browns made the playoffs on Sunday for the first time since 2003, James wanted to make sure the Dawg Pound isn’t satisfied with simply qualifying for the postseason.

On Sunday, the Browns squeaked out a 24-22 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were sitting several key players, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. After losing to the lowly Jets with their entire receiving corps held out due to contact tracing, the Browns beat the Steelers only to earn a shot to face the Steelers again next Sunday. James saluted them with a message about staying focused on what’s next.

LeBron was a Dallas Cowboys fan for much of his public life but he switched allegiances to the Browns over the years. Browns receiver Jarvis Landry has also visited students at LeBron’s I Promise school in years past.
