While he has often expressed a desire to play alongside his eldest son, Bronny, his recent interview suggests otherwise.

"I don't know when that door will close as far as when I'll retire. But I don't have much time left," he shared in a post-game interview on Sunday.

LeBron's recent change of heart about playing with Bronny in the NBA could suggest that the 19-year-old might be considering a return to college basketball after all.

Will LeBron James retire before Bronny enters the NBA?

At 39, LeBron is the oldest active NBA player, and although he still appears youthful on the court, he may feel differently.

Meanwhile, Bronny, fresh off his first season at USC, faces a pivotal decision: continue with the Trojans for another year or enter the NBA Draft.

However, his freshman year stats – averaging 4.8 points, 2.1 assists, and 2.8 rebounds – haven't impressed NBA scouts.

The future decisions for both LeBron and Bronny are crucial. While LeBron hasn't set a retirement timeline, it's possible he may retire before Bronny enters the NBA.
