It looks like LeBron James can’t wait to play with his son, Bronny James, in the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers star has been open about that dream, so it’s not a surprise to see him get hyped to see his eldest child improve on a daily basis.
A mixtape video of Bronny’s highlights in high school is recently making rounds online, and upon seeing it, James showered his son with praise. Bronny’s athleticism, shooting and blocking were all highlighted in the mixtape clip–reminding everyone that he is indeed the son of the Lakers champion.
Who wouldn’t see the similarities after that chase-down block Bronny did?

LeBron James is definitely one proud dad here. Bronny James is making huge strides in his development, and if he continues to improve his scoring and playmaking, he could very well be on his way to the NBA.
As it currently stands, Bronny ranks 35th nationally among 2023 prospects. On ESPN, he is at no. 43. Of course that only means he has ways to go, but one thing that works for him is he can always get to practice with his dad and be ready for NBA basketball if given the opportunity.
For what it’s worth, LeBron recently opened up about a conversation with his oldest son in which Bronny shared his desire to go to the prose. The younger James highlighted that he wants to make a name for himself, which is exactly what the Lakers star needed to hear to spark that wish to get to play with his son.
Bronny is No. 1 on my f—–g list,” LeBron said. “He’s No. 1 on my list. I want to play with for sure … Not too long ago, I said, I asked him, I said, ‘What you want to do with this? Like, you want to get to the pros? What you want to do?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Cause I want to make a name for myself.’ … And when I heard that, ‘Well, let’s f—–g get it.’ That’s all I needed to hear.”
It remains to be seen if the father-son tandem can make it happen, but it will definitely be exciting to see them play in one team.
