While up on stage, LeBron opened up about his decision, saying that “when the season ended, I said I wasn’t sure if I was gonna keep playing. I’m here now, speaking for myself. In that moment, [I was] asking myself if I can still play without cheating the game.”
“Can I give everything to the game still? The truth is, I’ve been asking myself this question at the end of the season for a couple years now, I just never openly talked about it,” he went on.
LeBron added, “The real question for me is, ‘Can I play without cheating the game?’ The day I can’t give the game everything on the floor is the day I’ll be done…Luckily for you guys, today is not that day.”
“I still got something left. A lot left! I love you all and thank you so much for watching this journey thus far.”
Rumors about LeBron retiring from the court were reupped a few months ago. He’s previously stated that he would like to play his final NBA season alongside his son Bronny, who is 18.
