PIt seems that the long-term future of LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers It is not guaranteed and rumors have already begun about the possible new destination of the second highest scorer in NBA history. Rumors and possibilities that could change the map of a league in which the 37-year-old forward is still one of its most dominant players.
Among the cabals of the future that were unleashed during and after the All Star, one begins to sound louder than the others and is the one that places the forward in Philadelphia to form a new ‘Big Three’ with Joel Embiid and James Harden in a last attempt to get a new ring.
Journalists Chris Mannix and Howard Beck dropped the bomb on a possible arrival of LeBron to the Sixers, a team to which he has already was linked to James before landing on the Lakers: “What would be a team with too many players who need the ball in their hands? It’s something you are already experiencing in the Lakers and Morey would love to be able to do it. You could put Thybulle and Maxey as part of the trade and then take Tobias Harris out and have more salary margin.”
The two journalists are not the only ones who have begun to speculate on LeBron’s future. Former NBA player Charles Oakley has also opened the Lakers’ exit door for the forward and offers him two possible destinations: “He needs to leave Los Angeles. He needs another ring and for that he has to go out and there are two places he could go: Phoenix and Philadelphia“It is not the first time that there has been talk of a possible end to LeBron’s stage in the Lakers.

Only one thing is clear regarding the future of King James and that is that the player is clear that his last great challenge is to play on the same team as his son. LeBron Raymone ‘Bronny’ James Jr., is currently 17 years old and will be eligible to play in the NBA in 2023 with LeBron at 38 years old. “Being on the same court as my son in the NBA. That would be the best thing in my life as a player,” the forward said in 2018 about a possibility that seems more and more real.
