Lebron James adds more context to his pending free agency decision.
History is repeating itself once more as all eyes are focused on what will come of Lebron James’s free agency as fans far and wide fantasize about King James adding his name to their roster. Many have offered up their own expertise on where Lebron James will end up this summer, however, all that means nothing when it comes to LBJ’s decision as he’s only weighing several deciding factors.
It was in a recent interview with Cleveland.com that he revealed what would ultimately play a role in his decision at this point. "My family. That's all that matters," James told the website. "I want to continue to win at the highest level, because I know I can still do it as an individual, and then my family. My family is what's most important to me, more than anything.”
It may seem like an obvious factor, but it’s clear to see why it matters the most now. While, he’s not yet reached his last stretch, Lebron James’s career is headed toward a wind down some time soon and the decision to chase a championship may not be as urgent for the three-time Finals MVP. Currently, Lebron, his wife Savannah and their three children live in the Bath Township of their native Akron surrounded by immediate family throughout Northeast Ohio.
They own a second home in Los Angeles, a fact that has sparked much speculation on his desire to head to the City of Angels. When prompted on whether or not the basic preference on where the family just wants to live could impact his choice as well, James responded that it could very well factor in. “That's just a small piece of it," James added. "We make joint decisions all together, all the time. Once we get to it, my agent and my team—we will all tackle it the right way but my family plays a big part in it. And winning."
