Great news for the Los Angeles Lakers organization and their fans, as their best player, LeBron James, has expressed his desire to remain as a Laker as long as he lives. During an Instagram live, LBJ discussed several topics, but at some point, he was asked how it feels to be a Laker, and his response was better than expected.

“I’m still playing, man. I gotta keep all my options open, man. But right now Imma tell you one thing. I don’t wanna go nowhere besides be here, baby. I’ll be a Laker for the rest of my life,” James said.

The Lakers are Bron’s third team in his career. He was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003, where he became one of the best players in the league, playing in one NBA Finals in 2007. James would take his talents to Miami in 2010, taking the Heat to four straight NBA Finals appearances, winning two titles.

He returned to Cleveland to win his third NBA championship with the Cavs back in 2016. Bron has a big history with Cleveland, no doubt about it, but now we see what his preferred organization in the NBA is.

Sure, you can’t compare the history of the Cavaliers to the Lakers, but this is still surprising. Before the NBA suspended the season, LeBron was leading the Purple and Gold to be the best team in the league alongside Anthony Davis and a group of players who complement them perfectly.

After Kobe Bryant left, the Lakers didn’t have a huge figure until LeBron arrived two years ago. Well, the King is trying to leave his mark on L.A. now, just like he did in Miami and Cleveland.
