After the Los Angeles Lakers were swept out of the playoffs by the Denver Nuggets last night, LeBron James surprisingly revealed that he is considering retirement.

While it seems unlikely that we’ve seen the last of LeBron on an NBA floor, it is one of the many options he has in front of him following last night’s loss.

He could opt to retire for next season to set up a return for the 2024-25 season when Bronny James could potentially be in his rookie season.

The retirement talk could all just be a way to try and get the Lakers to build a contender this offseason after the team’s successful playoff run.

It turns out there may be another option that not many people could have seen coming.

According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, there might be mutual interest between LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors.

It would be a truly shocking move for James that could only be seen as a negative for his legacy.

He could just go ahead and ask Kevin Durant want teaming up with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green did for his public perception.

It would also be a pretty risky move because, unlike when KD went to Golden State, there’s no guarantee that this would lead to a ring.

Age and major leg injuries have clearly started to impact Klay. Draymond can’t score and the rest of the lineup barely showed up for the team’s series against the Lakers aside from Steph and Andrew Wiggins. Steph had to drag the team through the first round with a record-breaking Game 7 performance against the Kings.

If LeBron James actually did head to the Warriors, it’s a move that would definitely generate a ton of hype, but that team still might struggle to get by the Nuggets or whatever the Phoenix Suns become this offseason.
