BONUS: LeBron James Indicates He's Considering Retirement After the Lakers get Eliminated
Listen now
After the Lakers were eliminated Monday in Game 4 against the Nuggets, LeBron James finished his press conference with a somewhat cryptic message. "We'll see. We'll see what happens going forward. I don't know. I don't know. I've got a lot to think about to be honest," James said. "Just for me personally going forward with the game of basketball. I've got a lot to think about." Obviously that sounds like a guy who is considering retirement, and Monday he certainly played like a guy who might walk away. 48 minutes, 40 points, 15-25 shooting. He left everything on the floor, no question. In our big show, we tried not to speculate until a little there was a little more reporting. Well... Both Dave McMenamin and Chris Haynes report that LeBron really does seem to be considering retirement. First, from McMenamin, this exchange: "LeBron James to ESPN on his thought process going into the offseason: Q: When you say you got to think about stuff, what thread should we be pulling on that? A: "If I want to continue to play." Q: As in next year? A: "Yeah." Q: You would walk away? A: "I got to think about it." Then Haynes reports that "Lakers star LeBron James is uncertain if he'll be with the team when the 2023-24 NBA season starts in the fall, and retirement is under consideration, league sources tell Bleacher Report, TNT. LeBron has a lot to weigh, sources say." So... is this a real game changer? What happens if LeBron calls it quits? Is it just a shot across the bow?
