LeBron James is contemplating retirement. The defeat in Game 4 against Nikola Jokic’s Denver Nuggets could have been the last NBA game of the Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar’s career.

James still has two years left on his contract, with the second year being a Player Option, totaling $97 million. It is expected that LBJ will take his time to decide whether he will return for his 21st year.

This shocking news comes after the Lakers were eliminated from the Western Conference Finals by the Denver Nuggets, where LeBron James concluded the press conference with an enigmatic statement:

After 20 years, if it’s the last season for LeBron, the four-time NBA champion and four-time Finals MVP would leave the game as the all-time leading scorer, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar this season, and as the all-time leading scorer in playoff history with a margin of 2,036 points ahead of second-place Michael Jordan.

Throughout this season, LeBron has spoken about his strong desire to play in the league alongside his eldest son, Bronny James, who is projected to enter the NBA for the 24/25 season.

Are LeBron’s words simply a result of disappointment from the disappointing elimination, or is there a much stronger foundation behind them? Only time will tell.
