Insider Suggests LeBron James Could Leave For Knicks After Contract Is Up


Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

It would be very hard to imagine LeBron James in a different uniform but according to an insider, it doesn't seem like a crazy idea.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, he truly believes LeBron will take his talents to the New York Knicks after his contract is up with the Los Angeles Lakers.

“I will never rule this one out — especially for his last season before retiring.
James has said the Garden is his favorite arena to play in. A lot depends not just on how his Lakers’ title journey pans out, but his son Bronny’s timetable.”

Bronny James, finishing his freshman year at Sierra Canyon High School, is 15 years old and not eligible for the NBA draft until 2024 under current guidelines.

James, whose Lakers’ contract expires in 2022, would be 39 by then. He’s made no secret of wanting to play with his son. That would be a first in NBA history. James is very conscious of his legacy. Finishing it out in New York could add to his place in history. The Knicks drew their smallest home crowd in nearly 13 years on March 4 against Utah.

Could LeBron's next destination be based on where his son lands? Only time will tell.
