LeBron On Playing Professionally With His Eldest Bronny James

LeBron James has long expressed his desire to play alongside his sons. Particularly, he has shown a strong interest in teaming up with his firstborn, Bronny James, and his middle child, Bryce Maximus James.

He has made it clear that he wants both of them to reach the NBA, and given their promising trajectories, it seems highly likely that they will make it.

In a strategic move, LeBron even included a player option worth $51.40 million for the 2024-25 season.

LeBron’s plan to join Bronny’s team coincides with his projected NBA entry.

This option allows LeBron to potentially join his son’s team, and he recently dropped a significant hint regarding which team that might be.

LeBron’s retirement speculation caused a stir after the Nuggets series sweep.

However, his close friend Dwyane Wade has indicated that this decision is more of a mental hurdle than a physical one. Wade believes that LeBron is likely to return to the game.

Retirement could potentially hinder LeBron’s goal of playing alongside his son. Hence, fans are eagerly waiting to see what the future holds for the basketball superstar.
