Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is winning games at 36, and age has nothing on him. The four-time NBA champion is the best basketball player of all time. It’s more than obvious that LeBron has the strength to play basketball for a really long time. Los Angeles offered him a two-year contract extension to secure his spot on the roster. In other words, LeBron will probably retire as a Lakers player.
LeBron can’t retire now. He won’t retire at this point of his career. His Los Angeles Lakers are coming off a championship, and they are on a good way to win another title. LeBron is leading his team throughout the season. They look really good right now, owning the best record and sitting on top of the Western Conference.
Los Angeles has a 11-3 record, and LeBron shocks everyone with his MVP performance. He is averaging 24.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 7.7 assists per game for the Lakers. His game is impeccable, and we can’t ignore LeBron’s elite basketball.
LeBron James is not worried about his age
So, when will the king of basketball retire? Media members keep asking the same question. LeBron made some plans, and he sort of knows the answer to this question.
The 16-time All-Star went from 26 to 36 without any trouble. His game didn’t change. However, he will definitely see some changes in the next decade. Going from 36 to 46 won’t be that easy.
“I don’t think I can go to 46, and I also don’t think my wife would like that,” the Lakers superstar said Saturday.
LeBron has an incredible basketball intelligence, and his photographic memory keeps surprising his opponents. The GOAT follows every move players make, and he can even predict their next play. This makes him special. LeBron remembers every single detail related to the game which is more than helpful in the game he is playing. But, he won’t be able to use his powers at 46. He could easily play into his 40s, but 46 is just too much.
LeBron’s oldest son, Bronny, will enter the NBA in a few years, and his father will still be winning games.
