LeBron James reveals playing with son Bronny James is one of his goals above everything else in exclusive interview
LeBron James has practically accomplished everything in basketball. He’s an Olympic gold medalist, a four-time MVP in the regular season and NBA Finals, and a four-time champion.
He has overtaken Magic Johnson in the all-time assists chart in his career and will usurp Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time top scorer. However, “King James” has set a goal higher than any other he will strive to accomplish before retiring.
In an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, James reiterated the most important goal he had to achieve before calling it a career:
“I need to be on the floor with my son, I have to be on the floor with Bronny. I would love to do the whole Ken Griffey Sr.-Jr. That’s definitely ideal. Being with him, spending a whole day years with him in the same uniform or against him, that would be the icing on the cake.”
Last season, LeBron James vowed to play for any team that could pick his son Bronny James. He insists that until then, the problem is not the money but the fulfillment of the dream.
Bronny James remains a senior at Sierra Canyon and will qualify for the 2024 NBA Draft. Young James’ entry into the pro league will coincide with last year’s All-Star 18x with the Lakers unless a deal is reached. other agreement.
“King James” signs a 2-year, $97.1 million contract extension with LA Lakers during the season. He has a player selection in his second year. If he chooses to participate in the final year of his contract, he will be in a vital position to play for Bronny James.
LA Lakers Get A Chance To Give LeBron James A Storybook That Ends By Outlining Bronny James
Bronny James is easily the most scrutinized high school basketball player on the planet. He’s not nearly as extraordinary as his father, but with the name on his back, he’s been put under a microscope.
Younger James is expected to go the once-and-done path. If he maintains his current trajectory, he could make it to the second round of the 2024 NBA Draft.
Unless a draw team bets on Bronny James, the LA Lakers will still have a good chance to draft LeBron James’ son. LA has a second pick in 2024 and will probably do whatever it takes to use that pick on the current Sierra Canyon senior.
But with Four-time NBA Finals MVP tried to play with his son even at a discount, Bronny James could become the first round. Teams holding picks from 15th to 30th can make a splash that will go down in basketball history.
The allure of LeBron James and Bronny James on the same team may be too difficult to overcome by draw teams.
However, the Lakers probably won’t give up without a fight. LA may still not be a contender when that time comes, but they will be an attention-grabbing phenomenon. If the father and son end up with the Lakers in spite of everything, it’s sure to be a story that even Hollywood can’t get over.
