In the GOAT Debate 🐐

“I think Father Time finally got the best of me and I want to spend more time with my family,” -LBJ

The King is dead! LeBron James just surpassed Michael Jordan for most 30-point games in NBA history and he’s finally realized there’s not much more for him to accomplish. Following the Lakers’ win over the Brooklyn Nets, LeBron dropped the NBA news to reporters that this would be his last ride.

I think Father Time finally got the best of me and I want to spend more time with my family,” an emotional LeBron said.

 

It looks like there won’t be a retirement tour for LeBron outside of the last several games of this season. It also sounds like we won’t get the long-awaited team-up with his son Bronny James, who is playing college ball at USC. There have been NBA rumors about him retiring for years and it’s finally happening.

 

An Incredible Career

After over two decades in the NBA, the only thing about LeBron James that has shown signs of regression is his hairline. LeBron James’ stats have been incredible this season and he looks like he could play for another five years.

 


However, LeBron James’ net worth is already over $1 billion so it’s not like he needs the money. Now is a logical point for him to hang up his sneakers. I know a lot of people have spent years hating LeBron, but now we can just celebrate him. We must also mourn for Skip Bayless and Nick Wright as they will now need to figure out their careers post-LeBron.

And by the way, if you haven’t caught on, this is an April Fool’s joke. Who are we kidding, of course, LeBron is going to have a full farewell tour when he retires! I’d bet my entire annual salary on that.
