James, the oldest NBA player, aims to stay a top scorer for Lakers next season. He’s doing great this season with an average of 25.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 8.2 assists. The Lakers are playing well too but are stuck at No. 9 in the tough Western Conference.

The future is unclear for James, especially with his son Bronny entering the NBA Draft. If another team drafts Bronny, they might try to tempt James away from Lakers.

Bronny James Could Influence LeBron James’s Decision

If Lakers want to keep James, they need to get his son Bronny on the team. It’s a big dream for James to play alongside his son.
