LeBron James says he has “a lot to think about” after the Los Angeles Lakers were knocked out of the NBA play-offs by the Denver Nuggets.
The Lakers were beaten 4-0 in the best-of-seven Western Conference finals by the Denver Nuggets.
It leaves the Lakers without a trophy for the third consecutive season, while James’ post-game comments have fuelled talk he could be set to retire.
James, who is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and has broken numerous records, told the media after the loss, “I don’t play for anything besides winning championships at this point in my career…I don’t get a kick out of making a Conference finals appearance. I’ve done it, a lot. And it’s not fun to me to not be able to be a part of getting to the NBA Finals.”
