Brian Geltzeiler, of Sirius XM NBA Radio and NBA TV, joined Cattles & Ramie Tuesday to talk about LeBron James and his potential retirement, which NBA Finals matchup is more intriguing and more.
When asked if he thinks James is actually considering retirement, Geltzeiler believes LeBron was genuine when he said he has “a lot to think about” after Monday’s loss.
“But if you told me I had to tell you right now, I do think he’s back and I think he’s back and the way he applies the leverage is he finds a way for the Lakers to get Kyrie Irving and I think that’s the guy he wants there,” Geltzeiler said, adding LeBron will also want Austin Reeves and Rui Hachimura to return. “I think he’s going to want to give it one more run with this group.”
Additional topics discussed include:
- It’s OK if LeBron James is the story the day after being swept by the Denver Nuggets
- Voting for Joel Embiid as the league MVP and why he would vote for Embiid again, even after Nikola Jokić’s run in the playoffs
- Is a shakeup coming in Boston if the Celtics are swept by the Miami Heat?
