That time when two Lakers legends almost got into a first fight

LeBron James made his debut in the NBA when he was 18 years, 303 days old. That's exactly 6,878 days since the day he was born. This means that he has spent exactly half of his life as an NBA player. Now he is 37 years, 7 months and 30 days old and he will start his 20th season as a pro basketball player.

The ‘King’ just signed a two-year extension with the Los Angeles Lakers. This means that he will play until he's at least 40 years old. That obviously means that he would have dedicated more than half of his life to the NBA. This comes with its rewards, as he is considered one of the best players to have ever played the sport.

When will LeBron James retire?

LeBron James just continues defying time. Not only is he entering his 20th season, but he is doing it at a very high level. Whether he can do it or three or five more years is yet to be seen. But at least we know he will play until he can have his son Broony by his side in the NBA.
