Now that he’s finally gotten the Cleveland Cavaliers a championship, is LeBron James ready to move on? The basketball star has enrolled his kids in a new school in Brentwood, California, which has sparked speculation that he might be headed to play for the L.A. Lakers!
LeBron James, 31, did what he came back to Cleveland to do — win an NBA championship. But does that mean he’s leaving his hometown team in the dust now that they’re on top? All signs point to him possibly ditching Ohio for California…so maybe he’s vying for a spot on the L.A. Lakers?!
LeBron has enrolled his kids in new schools in Brentwood, California, school officials confirmed, which kind of makes it seem like he wants to be based in Cali, right? Retirement definitely doesn’t seem to be on LJ’s radar, so the change makes it seem like he’s making plans to play on the Lakers or Clippers next season!
This wouldn’t be the first time LeBron left Cleveland: He controversially ditched his hometown team to play four seasons with the Miami Heat before returning for the 2014-2015 season. The 31-year-old has made it clear that his goal has always been to win a championship for the Cavs, so now that he’s done that, it certainly wouldn’t be completely surprising if he decided to try something new again.
Don’t jump to conclusions too quickly, though. “I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates,” LeBron told Cleveland.com at the Cavs’ victory parade. “Obviously, my agents will take care of all the logistical things, but I’m happy. I’ve got no plans to go nowhere at this point.”
Remember, though: Before he came back to Cleveland in 2014, the first signs of his decision came when he enrolled his kiddies in a school there. History does tend to repeat itself, guys…
