In the NBA All-Star game, LeBron James had a presser when he opened up about his future with the Los Angeles Lakers amidst all the speculation that the bmedia has been having in the last few weeks with his upcoming free agency.

During the pre-game press, LeBron spoke about different matters, one being his future in the sport as he stated he doesn't have the rest of his career as a player panned out, he just said to had one preference, to continue wearing the purple and gold for the rest of his career, unless the front office wants otherwise.

"I am a Laker and I'm happy and been very happy being a Laker the last six years and hopefully it stays that way," James said. "But I don't have the answer to how long it is or which uniform I'll be in. Hopefully [it] is with the Lakers. It's a great organization, so many greats. But we'll see."

LeBron James wants to win another NBA title with the Lakers and while rumors have the team looking to add a third superstar in the next offseason, the group is focused on making it straight to the playoffs, avoiding the play-in tournament, and having a deep run to at least repeat making it to the WCF like last season but to contend for the championship title.

LeBron James has a injury he wants to heal soon

James arrived at All-Star Weekend on Sunday, rather than Saturday like the rest of the All-Stars, because he was seeking treatment on his left ankle that caused him to sit out L.A.'s last game before the break -- a 138-122 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. "Trying to get my ankle as strong and as back to where I feel confident that I can finish off this last third of the season," James said. "I won't be playing the entire game tonight, for sure. I can get out there and run around with the young guys for a little bit and then shut it down at some point to give my body, and my ankle more importantly, another opportunity to rest."
