Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has clear plans for his future, and fans keep asking questions related to his retirement. The four-time NBA champion turned 36 in December, and he is the best basketball player of all time. NBA players are impressed with his durability and athleticism. Steve Kerr says LeBron is the greatest athlete on this planet. Athlete.
One thing stands for sure. LeBron looks and plays great, and age has nothing on him. Has he planned his retirement? Of course not. LeBron plays elite basketball. That’s pretty much everything you need to know about it.
LeBron James doesn’t even think of his retirement
Well, LeBron actually addressed his retirement briefly in one of his recent interviews.
“The game will let me know when it’s time,” he said. “We’ll figure it out then.”
That’s not all. He has one major goal in his career. The Lakers superstar would love to share the court with his oldest son. Bronny is a talented kid and LeBron looks forward to winning games with him.
“That’s definitely one of my goals, but that’s a long-term goal,” he told reporters. “My son right now is in high school and enjoying what being a teenager is all about. But that would be pretty cool to go on my resume if I’m able to be on the same court as my son someday in this league. The league has given me so much, and I just try to give back to it. So if I’m able to give back the way I play the game, the way I inspire the game, what I brought to the game and also be able to give back by giving my son or lending my son to the NBA, that would be a treat for me and it would be an honor for myself.”
LeBron and his Lakers teammates are entering the second half of the season. They have a great chance to repeat the championship. LA has a 24-13 record at this point of the season and sits third in the West. Anthony Davis is missing some time due to his injury. Dennis Schroder missed time, too. Hopefully, LA will be healthy and strong in the next couple of months.
