LeBron James Considering Retirement After WCF Exit, 20 NBA Seasons

In a shocking revelation, sources from the league have disclosed that Lakers superstar LeBron James is uncertain about his future with the team when the 2023-24 NBA season commences in the fall. Retirement is now being considered as an option, according to reports from Bleacher Report and TNT.

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 22: LeBron James #6 of the Los Angeles Lakers shoots a free throw during Round 3 Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals 2023 NBA Playoffs against the Denver Nuggets on May 22, 2023 at Crypto.Com Arena in Los Angeles, California.

“I’m currently unsure if I’ll return when the new season starts,” James informed Bleacher Report. “There’s a lot for me to contemplate.”

The decision-making process for LeBron is expected to take time, as he contemplates whether he will return for his 21st year in the NBA. Despite having two years and $97 million left on his contract, the final year is a player option, giving him the flexibility to decide.

This revelation follows the Lakers’ unfortunate sweep by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals on Monday night.

“Personally, as I look ahead with my basketball career, I have much to ponder,” James stated after the game.

If this marks the end of LeBron’s illustrious 20-year career, he will leave the game as the all-time leading scorer, having surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar this season, and also as the all-time leading scorer in playoff history, holding an impressive 2,036-point lead over the second-place holder, Michael Jordan.
