Since he entered the NBA, LeBron James became one of the most transcendent athletes in the world, having success on and off the court.
The Lakers’ superstar cemented his basketball legacy with multiple championships and individual awards throughout his career.
In a recent interview with Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, James expressed his willingness to finish his illustrious career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
“I truly hope that I can finish my career with the Lakers. How many years that is, if it’s four, five, six, whatever, seven, I hope I can continue to play the game. I love being in L.A., my family loves being in L.A. Being with a historical franchise like the Lakers is something …”
It’s like me being in “Space Jam” … I never thought it would be possible. You think about Kareem, and Magic, and Wilt, and Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, Kobe, Shaq and all of them, the whole list goes on,” James said.
LeBron led the Lakers to their first championship in 10 years during the 2019-20 season. He tried to have similar success this season, however, injuries slowed down the Lakers, who fell to the seventh seed to face the NBA finalists Phoenix Suns in the first round of the playoffs.
No matter where LeBron ends his career, the NBA playoffs are still happening right now. If you love sports betting, Indiana BetRivers Indiana Sportsbook offers NBA bets for every game of the pro basketball season.
