Lakers’ LeBron James gives a ‘scouting report’ of his son Bronny
LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has been rumored to want to play in the NBA long enough to play alongside his eldest son, Bronny James Jr.
Of course, next season, James will be playing in his 17th NBA season, and he has a ton of mileage on his tires during that time. Now that Dirk Nowitzki is retired, LBJ is currently first in career minutes with 46,235 in the regular season.
If King James were indeed to play with his son, he would have to play five more seasons, culminating in his age-39 season in 2024. If anyone can do it, it’s LeBron.
“Expect a kid that will play for his teammates. Will work hard, pay his dues and when his number is called he’ll make mistakes like any kid but will be ready and coached very well. Someone who doesn’t care about rankings cause the only thing that matters is his team success.”
Certainly, Bronny James has had success in his past, leading his middle school squad to a state title. At Sierra Canyon, Bronny will play alongside his fellow vaunted recruit Zaire Wade.
Of course, it helps that both players’ fathers experienced some of their most extended success as members of the feted “Big 3” Heat era alongside Chris Bosh.
No matter what happens, Bronny will get a lot of attention as he continues to play well for his school.
