We really know very little more however, it has never happened before today that news of a possible LeBron James retirement has come out.
We honestly don’t think the King will leave basketball for real, both because he just finished a 40-point, 10-rebound, 9-assist game and because he now finally has a team that can really compete to win his fifth title. Maybe not quite this one, but with a few minor adjustments in the summer, or maybe bigger Kyrie Irving type, never say never.
We’ll see how the situation develops. We will certainly keep you posted and update you in case LeBron James really wants to retire from playing basketball. Although, just the idea of that happening really brings a tear to our eye.
