Will it be possible to see LeBron James in the Knicks jersey? “I wouldn’t rule it out – says one of the best known signatures of the New York Post, Marc Berman – especially for the last year of his career.”
The reasoning is based on two pillars: LeBron James has repeatedly said that Madison Square Garden is the arena in which he prefers to play as he has repeatedly reiterated that it would be a dream to be able to share the NBA parquet with his son Bronny. Who – just closed his first year of high school, in Sierra Canyon – with the current regulations could not land in the league before 2024, when James would be 39 years old and would have already seen his current contract with the Lakers expire (in the summer 2022).
We talked about it in recent days and now SkySport also focuses on the possibility that LeBron can end his career with the Knicks.
At No. 23, the scenario of being able to play together with his son in the Knicks shirt was already outlined during his last visit to the Big Apple – “and he did not say no”, Berman’s optimistic vision.
“My son is 15 years old, I worry about the tasks he has to do for tomorrow, not about his future”, LeBron’s amused answer.
But in New York they don’t stop at anything, and then they point out how Rich Paul – the agent of the No. 23 of the Lakers – has recently started to represent another No. 23, this time just of the Knicks, the young and promising Mitchell Robinson center. And who knows, maybe what now seems ‘almost’ impossible could really happen.
