NBA icon LeBron James expressed his desire to conclude his illustrious career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. Ahead of his record-setting 20th NBA All-Star Game appearance, the 39-year-old affirmed his happiness with the Lakers over the past six years but remained uncertain about the specifics of his final playing days.


LeBron James, on the eve of his historic 20th NBA All-Star Game appearance, acknowledged the inevitable reality of nearing the end of his illustrious career. The 39-year-old Lakers star expressed a preference for concluding his playing days in the purple and gold, highlighting his contentment with the organization over the past six years.

However, James emphasized his lack of a precise plan for the final stage of his career and the uncertainty surrounding the duration and uniform he’ll wear. Despite facing recent ankle issues, he prioritized his health and aimed to strengthen his ankle for the remaining third of the season.

James, who arrived at All-Star Weekend later due to ankle treatment, endorsed the Lakers’ positive trajectory, emphasizing the team’s commitment to health throughout the season. This affirmation comes after recent speculation about his dissatisfaction, leading to a reported trade inquiry by the Golden State Warriors.

Addressing the trade rumors, James claimed unawareness of the Warriors’ attempt and asserted his focus on the Lakers’ current playoff push. He also addressed his eldest son, Bronny James, and his potential NBA draft decision, emphasizing that it’s ultimately up to the young player.

Regarding his own future, James hinted at the possibility of participating in the Paris Olympics and reflected on the uncertain nature of his eventual retirement. When discussing a farewell tour, he expressed ambivalence, torn between appreciating fan support and his discomfort with receiving praise.

As he navigates the challenges of securing a playoff berth with the Lakers, currently sitting at the 9th spot in the Western Conference, James acknowledged the inevitable conclusion of his storied NBA career. The exact manner of his departure remains uncertain, but James affirmed, “It’s coming, for sure.”
