Earlier this week, LeBron James reassured basketball fans by reaffirming his commitment to the sport. After mentioning the possibility of retiring at the end of the previous season, the Lakers star declared that he will continue competing in the NBA without an imminent plan to end his career.
After the 4-0 elimination to the Denver Nuggets last season, LeBron had expressed his retirement plan. Now, he is reinvigorated for the sequence of games in Los Angeles.
“I feel like I still have a lot to offer. At that moment, I felt exhausted, mentally tired. I was in a different place, that’s what I felt at that moment. But I’m happy to return this season and work with the team to achieve our goals. I talked with my family and myself. My children have inspired me, seeing how Bryce (my other athlete son) continues to grow. I’m also proud of Bronny,” he shared. Furthermore, the number 23 player also expressed his desire to share the field with Bronny, his 18-year-old son. The young man is being considered for the NBA draft after recovering from a cardiac arrest on July 24. LeBron stated that Bronny is recovering well and will soon be back on the court.
“Bronny is progressing very well, going through the rehab process to return to play with his USC teammates. The surgery was a success, he’s improving, it’s a big win. Our family has been through a lot of emotions this summer, but the important thing is that we have each other”, he concluded.
