Ever since his high school days, LeBron James has drawn pretty much all the attention from the media and everyone expected from him to become one of the greatest players ever.
The King has definitely been able to live up to the hype that has surrounded him throughout his entire career, winning 3 NBA Championships with two different teams after making it to 9 NBA Finals.
James is by far one of the greatest players this game has ever seen and is pretty much a lock to become the league’s all-time leading scorer, not to mention several personal accolades he’s won throughout his 15 season career.
Being considered the best small forward ever, the King has decided to join the Los Angeles Lakers and carry Kobe Bryant’s torch amid Magic Johnson’s revolution to try and bring the purple and gold back to the top of the basketball world.
So, by signing LeBron James to a 4-year deal, the King will stay put at the Staples Center until he turns 37 years old when the team will be set to face yet another major decision regarding the James family.
See, at the very moment when LeBron’s contract runs out, his older son LeBron James Jr will be 18 years old and will become eligible for the NBA Draft, giving the Lakers the opportunity to have father and son playing on the same team at the same time.
“Bronny” has been turning heads for years now and he looks like a more complete version of his old man, already having a well-developed jumper, the lone liability in James’ game during his youth years.
Also, considering how the King takes care of his body and how healthy he’s been throughout his entire career, playing until he’s 40 is a true realistic possibility, especially if that gives him the chance to play side by side with his very own son.
This would be one of the most iconic situations professional sports will ever see, and having the chance to compete for an NBA Championship with your son is something that may inspire a lot of filmmakers, especially considering they’d be playing in Hollywood.
This may be a mere coincidence or LeBron James’ master plan, but fulfilling this dream would take LeBron James back into the GOAT conversation, something that has been quite stalled losing after he lost once again in the Finals for the 3 time in 4 years.
Los Angeles has always developed a winning culture and landing a top-tier prospect in the Draft may be difficult now that they’re bound to get back on track, so that’s still a detail that needs to be addressed.
Anyway, whether the Los Angeles Lakers will be able to win the ring and dethrone the Warriors in the foreseeable future is still something we’ll have to wait and see, but either way, landing the son of the best player of the 2000s would be extremely promising for the team’s future.
