It’s no secret that Lebron James wants to play with his son Bronny in the NBA, but it seems like that’s going to be a reality.
He recently signed a 2-year extension with the Lakers, and Bronny is going into his senior year of high school and will be eligible for the NBA Draft after that.
It’s also a reality because Lebron hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down, and because of that, he not only wants to play with Bronny but also with Bryce, who is going into his sophomore year of high school.
That means Lebron would have to play beyond the 2-year extension with the Lakers, and says:
I mention this because James now has two teenage sons and, as happens for all parents who hit this point, the changes can be startling. “Hell yeah, it’s bittersweet to see your kids grow into their own,” he said when I brought it up this summer in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. At the time, James was sitting with his sons Bronny, 17, and Bryce, 15, and we were commiserating about brain chemistry and independence and all the rest. (I have two teenage daughters myself.) James went on to talk about his own experience growing apart from his mom, and how he now tries to focus on what matters most for his kids, “because it’s hard as hell to find happiness in this life that we’ve been brought into.”
“I like to throw things out in the airwaves, but I’m not one to [say] what’s going to happen in the next two to three years,” LeBron told Sports Illustrated.“I am a visionary, but I’m also a guy that lives in the moment. I’d definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, things of that nature; 2026, ’27. I pay attention to that type of stuff.”
“I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it’s all up to the body, but more importantly, my mind,” LeBron told SI. “If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky’s not even the limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see.”
It’s a long shot, but if anyone could make it happen it’s Lebron.
