Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar, LeBron James, despite being the NBA’s oldest player at 39, shows no signs of slowing down on the court.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, James is anticipated to extend his illustrious career for at least another year or two before considering retirement.

In a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Charania shared insights into James’ future plans, indicating a potential timeline for the superstar’s retirement.

“Most people I talk to around LeBron James, about LeBron James, one to two more years is definitely the expectation, that LeBron James is still going to play another year or two,” the insider said. “But, it’s obvious based on his comments that he’s at the end of the road. For players of LeBron James’ stature, it’s hard to come to grips with the reality of retirement.

“I spoke to Rich Paul today about LeBron James’ future and the openness that LeBron James is talking with about retirement and about being at the end of the road, Rich Paul told me it’s like landing a plane. You don’t just land right away, when you’re 45 minutes out, when you’re about to descend, there’s a warning, there’s a little bit of an announcement.”

Acknowledging the inevitability of retirement, James has hinted at a shorter remaining tenure in the league.

Despite nearing the twilight of his career, James remains a formidable force in the NBA, averaging 25.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 8.1 assists in 35.1 minutes per game in his 21st season.
