His jersey will read “James Jr.” Many reports suggest this choice is a homage to the late rapper Juice WRLD, whose debut EP was called “9 9 9.” Fans noted that 9 could be seen as an inverted 6, representing a transformation of negative (666) to positive (999).

Additionally, reports indicate that LeBron James has signed a two-year, $104 million maximum contract to return to the Lakers, including a no-trade clause and a player option for the 2025-26 season.

This deal ensures that 39-year-old will play alongside his son Bronny, making them the first father-son duo in NBA history.


Let us remind you, LeBron James, widely regarded as one of the greatest NBA players alongside Michael Jordan, became the first player to reach 40,000 career points last season.

A four-time NBA MVP, LeBron also leads the all-time playoff scoring leaderboard with 8,162 points.
