According to Shams Charania, the Senior Lead NBA Insider for The Athletic and Stadium, Bronny James, the eldest son of Lakers icon LeBron James, is garnering significant interest from multiple NBA draft boards.

Presently, Bronny is making a name for himself as a college basketball player with the USC Trojans in the Pac-12 Conference. Despite being a consensus four-star recruit, his recognition extends back to high school, where he earned the prestigious title of McDonald’s All-American in 2023.

LeBron James has consistently expressed his strong desire to share the professional basketball court with his son.

In 2023, James mentioned, via ESPN, that being on the court with Bronny, whether in the same team uniform or as opponents, is something he looks forward to. Drawing parallels with baseball’s Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr., LeBron envisions this father-son dynamic as an ideal scenario.

LeBron’s commitment to turning this dream into reality is apparent in his decision to sign an extension with the Lakers last year. This extension provides him the option to potentially opt out in 2024, precisely when Bronny becomes eligible for the NBA Draft.

Expressing his dedication to supporting Bronny’s aspirations, LeBron emphasized that if his son aspires to play in the NBA, he must put in the hard work. LeBron, already a prominent figure in the NBA, eagerly anticipates the day he can share the basketball court with his son.

To realize this dream, LeBron would need to continue playing for at least two more years, until 2024 when Bronny could enter the NBA Draft. Given LeBron’s sustained physical capability, this appears to be a plausible scenario for the father-son duo to share the basketball court.
