LeBron James didn’t win a title this season and fans started asking questions about his future in the NBA. The four-time NBA champion tore the tendon in his right foot and will probably undergo a surgery to fix it.
There have been several possible scenarios for the king of basketball. He could stay with the Lakers and hope for another good season. LeBron could also leave the team and join another franchise. The third option would be calling it career. LeBron is 38 and fans wouldn’t be surprised to see this. He has a lot to offer and his game is elite even at this stage of his career, but LeBron will have to retire at some point.
According to Shams Charania from The Athletic says that LeBron will have to get a surgery and miss two months of action.
“So I’ll just look at the overall context of the season. The numbers he put up this year were historic, I think the most points ever for a player at the age of 38. Leads the Lakers from 2-10, all the way to the Western Conference Finals,” Charania said on the Pat McAfee Show. “And he plays the last few months of the season with a torn tendon in his foot that could need surgery this summer. I’m told he’s going to be re-evaluating that foot. It’s very possible he might, he might need surgery on that foot. That could sideline him for two months.”
LeBron has great plans for his future, but won’t disclose anything about them
LeBron didn’t say much about his surgery. In fact he even told reporters that they would never know if he had underwent a surgery.
“If I happen to get surgery after the season, you guys won’t know,” LeBron said in March. “I don’t talk to you guys in the offseason, and by the time the next season starts, I’ll be fine and ready to go.”
LeBron takes his body seriously. He spends a lot of money and time to take a good care of it. He may need a surgery, but this may not stop him from doing another season.
“I fully expect him to play next season. All I heard after those comments is that he will be playing next season. That’s my sense,” Charania said. “But again, I think he’s gonna take the next couple of months to really see where his head’s at and see if gets re-energized.”
