It’s clear to anyone who has watched the NBA this year that even at 38 years old, LeBron James is still among the best players in the league right now as he currently leads the Los Angeles Lakers in scoring with 30 points per game on average, which also ranks No. 7 in the league. But despite his dominance, he can’t play forever. And he may have given a slight hint at the length of his career during Sunday night’s NBA All-Star Game.

Between plays of Sunday night’s NBA All-Star Game, a microphone caught LeBron James suggesting that he’ll be playing for “a couple more years.”

“I gotta slow down,” James said with a laugh. “A couple more years.”

James did not play the full duration of Sunday night’s All-Star game as both he and fellow captain Giannis Antetokounmpo made early departures from the game – perhaps in an attempt to preserve their health for future games and seasons. After all, LeBron has been playing with a lingering injury.

As for his career, James has made it quite clear that he wants to play with his son Bronny James in the NBA and Bronny will not be eligible for the league until 2024. This would mean LeBron has at least two years left.

But whenever he does decide to end his career, it’s clear that he’ll retire as arguably the greatest player of all time after just breaking the NBA’s all-time scoring record.
