Once LeBron decided to leave Cleveland a second time and don the purple and gold, it was assumed that he would finish his career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
LeBron has already won another title since his move to L.A. but the team has been pretty poor since that bubble championship and LBJ is again the subject of trade rumors.
As a result, NBA insider Zach Lowe has shared his opinion on where the 38-year-old will end his career.
While James is unhappy with losing and wants the Lakers to make improvements to the team as he’s grown frustrated, he wants to keep living in Los Angeles so he could remain close to his family. There are also lots of perks to living in L.A. and Bron’s starred in a movie in the wake of his move there. But he still prioritizes basketball and his patience will eventually wane if the Lakers can’t put a winning team together.
Lowe, though, says he’s willing to bet LeBron will still be a Laker when he retires.
“I keep hearing he wants to stay with the Lakers,” the journalist said on The Lowe Post. “He wants to finish his career with the Lakers. His comments, though, should be interpreted as his patience is not infinite, and if this is just a continued morass of losing, maybe that changes.
“But if you force me to bet, I’d still bet on him finishing his career with the Lakers. And I’d feel pretty confident in that.”
King James signed a two-year extension with the Lakers to the tune of $97.1 million last August which includes a player option for the 2024 season. He cannot be traded this season as the second year of his latest deal goes past a 5 percent raise. But he will be eligible for a trade at the end of the current campaign.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
