It’s a tough time to be a sports fan in general, but Lakers fans finally have something to smile about. In a candid Instagram Live session on Friday evening, LeBron James expresses his interest in being a Laker for life.

What NBA team would I never play for? I’m still playing, man. Hey, I’ve got to keep all my options open, man. But right now I’ll tell you one thing: I don’t want to go nowhere besides be here, baby. Be a Laker for the rest of my life.

In terms of good news, this is about as good as it gets for Lakers fans. Maybe the only other news that could even come close is hearing that Anthony Davis wants to stick around for the long haul as well.

But LeBron came over to the Lakers on a four-year contract prior to the 2018-19 season. His fourth year is a player option, so fans were facing the possibility of only having him around for one more year. But from what it sounds like, one of the greatest basketball players of all-time wants to finish out his career with Los Angeles.

LeBron notoriously chose to change allegiances from Cleveland to Miami prior to the 2010 season. It was there that he won back-to-back NBA Championships in the 2012 and 2013 season. He then went back to Cleveland and brought a Championship home in the 2016 season.

If the Lakers are able to lock down Lebron for life, it will be interesting to see how long the deal is for. James will be in his age 36 season in the final year of his contract, though it seems likely that he could play well past 40 years old.

Regardless, hearing that LeBron wants to stick around is the kind of good news that every Lakers fan needs right now.
