LeBron James addresses future on social media after Lakers’ playoff exit

The Denver Nuggets eliminated Los Angeles 4-1 on Monday in their first-round matchup.

With the Los Angeles Lakers eliminated from the NBA playoffs once again at the hands of the Denver Nuggets, the primary topic that emerged involved LeBron James.

Would the 39-year-old star hang up his sneakers after contemplating retirement last season? Or is it possible he leaves Los Angeles for a different location?

James addressed the rumors about his future on social media Tuesday.

“I’ve seen, heard a lot of reports about my future,” James wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. “I said it last night and I’ll say it again. I do not know yet as I’m only thinking about spending time with my family & friends! When I know after speaking with the fam, my counsel as well as my representation about it then you guys will know. Until then [hush emoji]. Love [crown emoji].”

If James chooses to return, it’d be Year 22 for the former 2003 No. 1 overall pick. He has a player option for 2024-25 worth $51 million if he opts in, via Spotrac.

After being eliminated in Game 5 on Monday, James was asked if it was his last game as a Laker.

“I’m not going to answer that,” he said.

He could opt out and re-sign a new deal with the Lakers — as he’s done with the past — or potentially test free agency. The deadline to opt in is on June 29.

James could do the latter of those two options, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst speculated Tuesday morning. If so, it’d be the first time James was available in free agency since 2018, which is when he left Cleveland for Southern California.
