LeBron James is talking LeRetirement. Here we go … In a recent interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, LeBron James discussed the possibility that his latest contract might be his last as a professional basketball player. When asked if this could be his final deal, LeBron replied, “I mean it could be. I’d never sit up here and say oh, uh, um, maybe not, but yeah, it could be. Easily. But we’ll see what happens.”

Unless you live under a proverbial rock, LeBron James has just concluded his 21st NBA season and will turn 40 in December. He recently signed a two-year, $101 million contract to return to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he will have the opportunity to play alongside his son, Bronny James Jr., for the next two years.

Given LeBron’s epic history and undeniable achievements, it’s reasonable to assume he has a plan in mind. This plan may evolve based on his health and the team’s performance, but it’s clear that he has contemplated his future in the sport. Despite his non-committal response, it’s understandable, especially considering he was recently named to the All-NBA Third Team and could potentially secure another substantial contract as he approaches 42.

As expected, LeBron’s response didn’t reveal much about his future plans, but the manner in which he answered the question was telling. He appeared genuinely amazed to still be in such a position. As a basketball historian and the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, LeBron understands the magnitude of his achievements.

While obviously this might be his last contract, LeBron remains open to the possibility of continuing his career, surprising both himself and others. Blame Tom Brady after playing in the NFL until age 45, because it’s plausible that if LeBron still feels motivated and capable, he could extend his career beyond this contract. LeMore seasons? Only time will tell.
