LeBron James Willing To Leave Lakers To Have The Opportunity To Play With Bronny


LeBron James is a freak of nature. He’s in his 19th year in the NBA, still hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down and arguably still is one of the best players in this league at age 37.

But when you think about the NBA average, which James clearly is no part of, the question of a possible retirement often is the elephant in the room for players in their mid-thirties. LeBron though has no plans of retiring before 2025. That’s when his son, LeBron James Jr., could play in the NBA.

Bronny is currently a junior at Sierra Canyon School, and has become one of the top recruits in his class. According to some reports, LeBron James will be willing to leave the Lakers, or any team for that matter, to have the opportunity to play alongside his son.

Per Maxim’s Chris Sheridan:


“It makes sense on many levels to assume that LeBron will spend the remainder of this season and all of next season with the Lakers so that he can be close to his son all the way through high school,

But after June of 2023 has come and gone (and James’ current contract with the Lakers will have expired), there could be a new destination on James’ landscape … provided he has not already switched teams prior to that in order to increase his chances of winning another title…

…LeBron likes L.A., he likes raising his family in L.A., and his post-career businesses are in L.A.,” ESPN’s Brian Windhorst told Sheridan. “But he’s made it very clear that he wants to play with his son. If that situation is available outside L.A., he’ll pursue it.”
