Gray Frame Corner

LeBron James states that he intends to retire from the Lakers. 

Sunday, before his record-setting 20th NBA All-Star Game appearance, LeBron James acknowledged he's closer to the end of his remarkable career than the beginning. 

James, 39, said he doesn't have a specific plan for his last years as a player, but he does want to play for the Lakers. 

"I am a Laker and I'm happy and been very happy being a Laker the last six years and hopefully it stays that way," he said. 

"But I don't know how long or what uniform I'll wear. Hope it's with the Lakers. A terrific organization with many greats. We'll see." 

James attended All-Star Weekend on Sunday instead of Saturday because he was getting treatment for his left ankle, which kept him out of L.A.'s final game before the break, a 138-122 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. 

"Trying to get my ankle as strong and as back to where I feel confident that I can finish off this last third of the season," he stated.  

"Definitely won't play the whole game tonight. 

I can run with the young boys for a while and then stop to rest my body and ankle.
