Las Vegas oddsmakers believe LeBron James' 13-year postseason streak could be in serious jeopardy with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook reopened odds on a proposition bet Friday for the Lakers' playoff chances. Both "yes" and "no" currently stand at equal -110 odds after beginning the year at -450 for yes and +350 for no while closing at -600, according to ESPN's Ben Fawkes.

"With the trade deadline having passed and the length of the break over the next week due to the All-Star Game, this prop is polarizing," SuperBook's Jeff Sherman told ESPN. "It's at the forefront of interest considering the Lakers' record at this point of the season."

The Lakers entered the All-Star break with a 28-29 record, placing them 10th in the Western Conference and three full games back of the eighth-seeded Clippers. It's the latest a LeBron-led roster has sat below the .500 mark since his rookie year in 2003-04 when the Cleveland Cavaliers finished 35-47.

James has competed in the last eight Finals, albeit as part of an Eastern Conference squad.
