If Tom Brady and LeBron James were to retire today, they would go down as arguably the best to ever do it in their respective sports.
But both 42-year-old Brady and 34-year-old James are showing no signs of slowing down at this stage of their legendary careers, and retirement doesn't appear to be in sight for either player. Brady has been adamant about wanting to play until age 45, and James has never hinted at the possibility of hanging 'em up any time soon.
In fact, James said on Friday that he and Brady will play "until we can't walk no more." Brady caught wind of that comment and responded by saying he'll play "until he can't dunk anymore."
James doubled down with a funny response of his own:
Certainly doesn't sound like two guys who want to call it quits any time soon.
Brady has the Patriots at 8-1 on the season and well on their way to competing for Super Bowl No. 7. As for James, his Lakers are 9-2 and leading the Western Conference.
