LeBron James’ steady dominance sets him apart in terms of NBA longevity. Even at 38 years old, he remains a dominant player, maintaining his status as one of the league’s best players. However, as time marches on, whispers about the end of his career are becoming louder.

The recent NBA playoffs came close to being a pivotal turning point when the Denver Nuggets completed a sweep against the Los Angeles Lakers. Following the loss, LeBron hinted at retirement, leading to questions about his future in the sport. However, latest signs surrounding LeBron strongly suggest that he is set to honor his contract and play for his 21st season in the NBA.

Given LeBron’s sustained excellence, hopes of winning another championship, and eagerness to wait for his son Bronny James, it comes as no surprise that he considers sticking around in the NBA. Picking up on this potential for an extended career, former NBA center and current NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins now suggests that the 38-year-old Lakers superstar could even play until the age of 50.


“LeBron [James] could actually play until he’s 50 [years old]. If LeBron could buy into the Udonis Haslem role… Where he’s on the bench being a veteran leader.”
