LeBron James has so many plans for his NBA future and he doesn’t even think of retiring at this point. The four-time NBA champion has just signed an extension with the Los Angeles Lakers and he will probably spend the next couple of seasons on their roster.
Jeanie Buss respects LeBron and his loyalty. In his interview with Chris Ballard of Sports Illustrated, LeBron talked about his future and his next plan.
“I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it’s all up to the body, but more importantly, my mind,” the Lakers superstar said. “If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky’s not even the limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see.”
LeBron James includes his sons in his NBA future
LeBron may be 37, but age has nothing on him. He plays elite basketball and his MVP stats shock each and every doubter out there. LeBron could have snatched the individual reward last season, but the Lakers were eliminated of the playoff run and he couldn’t even compete for it.
The four-time NBA champion is the best to ever play the game and his sons got the good genes. Hopefully, LeBron will be on the same team with his oldest son Bronny. Oh wait, he would love to play with Bryce, too.
“I like to throw things out in the airwaves, but I’m not one to [say] what’s going to happen in the next two to three years,” LeBron told Ballard. “I am a visionary, but I’m also a guy that lives in the moment. I’d definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, things of that nature; 2026, ’27. I pay attention to that type of stuff.”
LeBron doesn’t plan to retire at this point and his contract extension is a clear sign of his desire to play. He had a reason to sign an extension with the Lakers and Brian Windhorst has more details.
“Basically I was told because LeBron believes in the Lakers,” Windhorst said. “LeBron believes in the Lakers. Long story short.”
