Los Angeles Lakers Reveal They Will Retire LeBron James' Jersey


The Los Angeles Lakers have been fortunate to have some of the best basketball players to ever play the game over their illustrious history, with jerseys such as Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and many more retired, and now it appears they're ready to add one more.

After many rumours and discussions, the organization has now revealed that whenever LeBron James retires, he will have his jersey in the rafters, along with likely Cleveland and Miami, to whom he brought Championships as well.

While LeBron will never be considered one of the greatest Lakers ever, he is arguably the best player to ever play for the team, and after the 2020 Championship and potentially more with the team reloading this off-season, it makes sense as to why they are going to make this happen.
