But when James said after Game 4 that he'd think about quitting basketball after playing his 20th season, he completely shocked the NBA community. During the news conference following the game, he stated, "I've got a lot to think about moving ahead with the game of basketball. Most people are surprised that James is even considering it because he has always expressed a desire to play in the NBA alongside his son Bronny, who will be eligible for the draught following the upcoming collegiate season. Could he really quit the sport over the offseason?
"The King" himself believes that James' retirement is a possibility. Irving in purple and gold, though, has a good chance of succeeding as well. There is little doubt that this offseason will be unlike any others throughout LeBron James' illustrious career.
