LeBron James wants to finish his career with Lakers

The LeBron James-to-the-Knicks pipe dream may be dead, once and for all.

In an appearance on the “SmartLess” podcast on Monday, James expressed a desire to remain in Los Angeles for the rest of his NBA career.

“I truly hope that I can finish my career with the Lakers,” James said. “However many years that is, if it’s four, five, six, whatever, seven. I hope I can continue to play the game. I love being in L.A. My family loves being in L.A. Being with a historical franchise like the Lakers is something.

“… It’s like me being in ‘Space Jam’ — I never thought it would be possible. You think about Kareem and Magic and Wilt and Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, Kobe, Shaq and all of them, the whole list goes on.

James apparently considered joining the Knicks in 2019 before his wife, Savannah, shut down the idea because she wanted the family to be in Los Angeles, Vanity Fair’s Lisa Robinson said on a recent episode of the “Brian Windhorst & The Hoops Collective” podcast.

James, 36, has two years remaining on his current contract with the Lakers after signing a two-year, $85 million extension last December. He is slated to become a free agent following the 2022-23 season, at the age of 38.
