LeBron James hints at Lakers future and eventual retirement

Posted : 19 February 2024

LeBron James, on the eve of his 20th NBA All-Star Game, acknowledged that he is closer to the end of his illustrious career than the beginning. The 39-year-old Lakers star expressed a preference for finishing his career with the purple and gold, emphasizing his happiness with the organization.


James, seeking treatment for his left ankle, plans to focus on his health for the remainder of the season and hinted at not playing the entire All-Star Game. Despite recent speculation about his future, James emphasized his commitment to the Lakers and the importance of health for the team's success.


Addressing his recent endorsement for the Lakers, who have won six of their last seven games, James stressed the team's positive trajectory. Two weeks ago, he raised concerns about his player option for the 2024-25 season, prompting speculation about his future.


 James' apparent discontent led to an attempt by the Golden State Warriors to inquire about a trade, which was rebuffed by James' agent, Rich Paul. James clarified that he was unaware of the trade attempt and publicly expressed his contentment with the Lakers. Additionally, James discussed his son Bronny's future, stating that the decision to enter the NBA draft after his freshman season with USC is up to him.


James faces the immediate challenge of securing a playoff berth for the Lakers, currently sitting at No. 9 in the Western Conference. While he remains focused on the ongoing season, James reiterated his intention to play for Team USA at the Paris Olympics this summer.


When questioned about his final NBA season, James mentioned being 50-50 on whether to have a farewell tour, citing his discomfort with accepting praise. As he approaches the end of his career, James acknowledged the inevitability of his retirement, stating, "I don't know how it's going to end, but it's coming, for sure."
