LeBron James confirms return for 21st NBA season

Date:

Lebron James’s career has not yet run its course. The Lakers star made the announcement at the ESPYs on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

James publicly considered retiring after the Lakers were swept by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference finals, but he will join Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Robert Parish, Kevin Willis, and NBA record-holder Vince Carter in playing in his 21st season or longer.

After winning the ESPY for Best Record-Breaking Performance for surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time top scorer, James said, “I don’t care how many more points I score or what I can or cannot do on the floor.” Can I participate in this game without resorting to cheating? When I reach a point where I am unable to leave all on the field, it will be it for me. Thankfully, that time has not yet come for you.

James’s wife, Savannah, presented him with the medal, and his three children, Bronny, 18, and Bryce, 16, and 8-year-old Zhuri were also present.

“Let me introduce to you the greatest of all time, LeBron James”, as Savannah introduced him. James, who turns 39 in December, took the opportunity to talk about how his kids are the reason he still loves basketball.

In the autumn, Bronny Jr. will join the USC basketball team as a freshman. Bryce is starting his junior year at Campbell Hall High School, where he recently transferred. In the recent Peach Jam tournament in South Carolina, James coached Bryce’s AAU team, Strive For Greatness.

To begin tonight, I’d like to take a moment to reiterate something I’ve said a million times yet never tire of repeating: I adore this game. James declared, “Basketball is my favorite sport.” “There’s a video of me coaching Bryce’s team last weekend that’s flying around the internet right now, and it’s actually pretty amusing. The phrase “LeBron brings the energy to a high school AAU game the same way he would do to a Finals game” appeared frequently in online discussions. That, to me, is the highest praise possible.

I have never, ever cheated in my 20 years of playing this game, and I never intend to start now.

On Wednesday night, James spoke about his commitment to the sport that has propelled him into the national limelight for over two decades. In attendance were former teammates Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

“I want to leave it all on the court, whether I’m teaching my guys or playing myself. In his own words, “I do it for myself,” James explained. I do it for some of my current and former teammates. Also, I honor the greats that came before me by doing this. More than anything else, I play for the fans, the true believers in the sport.

“Listen, you can love me — and I know some of you hate me as well — but the one thing you will always do is respect me and appreciate the way I approach the game and what I’ve given to this game.”

After scoring 40 points and playing all 48 minutes in the Lakers’ Game 4 defeat to the Nuggets, Lebron James told ESPN that he had to ask himself, “If I want to continue to play.”

“When the season ended, I said I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep playing,” James explained. I’m aware that many authorities have already told you what I’m about to say, but I’m here to speak for myself. At that same time, I’m debating with myself whether or not I can still play honestly and give my all to the game. Truth be told, I’ve been pondering this subject every season finale for the past few years. I just never brought it up in conversation.

They’re on their own basketball journey and no matter how far they choose to go, they’re not cheating the game,” Lebron James said, further distancing himself from his previous desire to play on the same NBA team as one or both of his boys. I find motivation from that.

The King will return

What keeps me coming back year after year? What I enjoy most is being a coach for my guys and their teammates. Whenever I think about how much these kids mean to me, I remember why I play. The simple enthusiasm the kids have for his magnificent game restores me.

That being said, I still have a little bit to spare. Many unfinished business. I care about you all and appreciate you following us on our adventure.
