For the first time in his career, there are questions about Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James potentially walking away after an illustrious career.
James and the Lakers were swept by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals on Monday. After the loss, Chris Haynes of TNT and Bleacher Report reported that James is considering retirement.
The four-time NBA champion is under contract for 2023-24, and he has a player option for 2024-25. James previously stated a desire to play his final NBA season with his son, Bronny James, who’s eligible for next year’s draft.
Bookies.com released its early betting odds for the team that will land LeBron and Bronny. The Houston Rockets and Charlotte Hornets are the co-betting favorites at +950 per, followed by the Detroit Pistons at +1000.
