Not one, not two, not three, but “four, five, six, seven”. Years, not a champion.
The end of LeBron James’ career has been speculated, but the Lakers star Recently listed his retirement schedule in “SmartLess” Podcast with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.
It sounds like he will not leave soon.
I really hope I can end my career with the Lakers. No matter how many years, if it is four, five, six, no matter, seven, I hope I can continue to play this game. I like to stay in Los Angeles, and my family also likes to stay in Los Angeles. It is a very important thing to have a team with a long history like the Lakers. Just like I was in “Space Jam”-I never thought it was possible. Think about Karim, Magician, Wilt and Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kobe, O’Neal, etc. The whole list goes on.
James became a free agent after the end of the 2023 season, so any hope of ending his career in Los Angeles needs to be linked to a contract extension, which will keep him stable for the foreseeable future.
If James wants to play for another four, five, six or seven years, he will have to challenge his father’s time: he will turn 37 in December, and when he hangs up forever, he will be in his early 40s.
LeBron also stated that he wants to play with his son Brownie James, and he is still a few years away from entering the NBA. Some reports indicate that Brownie plans to play for Duke in 2023, but has not yet made an official commitment.
However, whenever Brownie’s name is mentioned in the NBA draft, his father may be waiting for him in the Association.
