LeBron James continues on his way. It was obvious, but he himself – without confessing what motivated those words – encouraged an unfounded doubt about his future in the NBA. He did it after being eliminated in the Western Conference finals by the Nuggets, ultimately the champions of the 2022/23 season, at a press conference. He admitted that he would have to think about his continuity. Be that as it may, at an awards ceremony for ESPN He has cleared up all the uncertainty that could exist around his figure:
“I don’t care how many points I score or what I can or can’t do on the court. The real question for me is this: ‘Can I play without lying to the sport?’ The day I can’t give basketball everything I have will be the day I give it up. Luckily for you guys, that day is not today.”
LeBron James still has a mandatory year of contract for 47.6 million dollars and in the summer of 2024 he can activate another one in exchange for 51.4. Last year he averaged 28’3 points, 8’3 rebounds, 6’8 assists with 50% shooting during the normal season, in which he broke the historical scoring record that until February belonged to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In 2023/24 he will enter at the age of 38 and will complete his 21st season in the most important basketball league on the planet.
