Could LeBron James leave the LA Lakers?

According to Charles Oakley LeBron James could leave the Los Angeles Lakers. He said: "We all know that the biggest motivation for not leaving the basketball world is the opportunity to win another title. He is the kind of person who can easily leave the Lakers to try: I don't know if for to go back to Cleveland or to find another winning group to settle in.

He ditched his team twice in his career, he can do it a third." What will happen in the next few weeks?

LeBron's career and curiosity

First overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft and named Rookie of the Year in 2004, he won four NBA titles (two with the Miami Heat, one with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and one with the Los Angeles Lakers) and as many regular season MVP awards and of the finals.

With the US national team he participated in three Olympics, winning the bronze medal at the 2004 Athens Games and the gold medal in Beijing 2008 and London 2012. James had a difficult past: in fact he grew up alone with his mother Gloria, while the figure of his father is shrouded in mystery (we only know that he was his partner, in high school, of the woman); never having known the parent was, according to James himself, a motivation to constantly improve.

He has two sons and a daughter born of the relationship with his high school girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, with whom he married on September 14, 2013 in San Diego: the firstborn, LeBron Jr., was born on October 6, 2004; the second, Bryce Maximus, on June 14, 2007, and the youngest, Zhuri, on October 22, 2014.

James is an active supporter of many charities, including the Boys & Girls Club of America, Children's Defense Fund, and ONEXONE. He also founded his own association, called LeBron James Family Foundation, based in Akron, his hometown.

He is also one of the producers of the television show The Wall. On 30 July 2018 he inaugurates a public school in his hometown Akron, the I Promise School to give a completely free study opportunity to children living in difficult conditions.

Starting from June 2019 he participates in the filming of Space Jam: New Legends, of which he will be the protagonist and co-producer, released July 16, 2021. On December 13th, with 30 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the victory against the Orlando Magic, he becomes the oldest player ever to make a triple double with at least 30 points, surpassing, at the age of 36 years and 347 days, the Kobe Bryant's previous record (36 years and 99 days).

On December 25th, thanks to the 39 points scored against the Brooklyn Nets, he becomes the best Christmas Day scorer in NBA history, again surpassing Bryant's previous record. On December 28th, at the age of 36 years and 363 days, he becomes the youngest player ever (and the third overall, after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone) to reach 36,000 career points.

In the same match he also becomes the first player ever to score at least 30 points in five consecutive games after turning 36. On January 9th, in the defeat against Memphis, he overtook Oscar Robertson in seventh place in the ranking of the best assistmen ever.
