At a press conference, the 39-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star said he didn’t know how many seasons he would play, but that retirement “is coming.” LeBron also answered whether he plans to go on a farewell tour when the time comes, and he made no secret of his desire to retire playing for the Lakers.

“I haven’t planned how many seasons I have left, but I know there aren’t many. I’m torn about doing a farewell tour. There are times when I feel like I owe it to my fans who have been on this journey with me for over 2 decades, to give this moment to them. I’m a Laker and I’ve been very happy being a Laker for the last six years. I don’t have the answer to how long it will take or what uniform I’ll wear. I hope it’s with the Lakers, but we’ll see. I don’t know how this will end, but it’s coming. It’s coming for sure,” LeBron said.
