Bronny James, the son of LeBron James, was asked about his most beloved basketball player of all time, and his response was not unexpected.
After pausing for a moment to consider, 19-year-old Bronny gave his answer with a grin that paid homage to his famous father. “I’d go for LeBron James or something like that,” he replied. Bronny made the decision to don the number 6 jersey for his time at the University of Southern California, which was also previously worn by his dad during his two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers. USC Basketball shared a video on X (formerly Twitter), and in the background, you can hear Bronny’s friends chuckling at his response.
LeBron James has three kids, with the eldest being a teenager named Bronny. He also has a 16-year-old son named Bryce and a 9-year-old daughter named Zhuri. Recently, LeBron and his wife Savannah celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary. Fans have praised the couple for their parenting skills. Bronny is a highly sought-after high school basketball player, but it’s unsure when he’ll have his first game. The season begins on November 6, but Bronny had a heart arrest in July and is still recovering from surgery for a congenital heart defect. It’s unknown if he’ll be able to play this season.
Bronny’s family released a statement in August stating their confidence in his recovery and return to basketball soon. USC basketball coach, Andy Enfield, told ESPN that Bronny is doing well, but due to his health, they couldn’t provide any further details. Despite this setback, Bronny is excelling in school and attending classes. He did not practice with the team on September 23, but the university has not disclosed any further information about his condition.
The HoopLA event at USC saw the attendance of a special guest, Bronny, who met and greeted fans. The USC Instagram account confirmed this with a post that read, “Bronny showed off his moves and did the dougie during his Trojan HoopLA intro.” LeBron James, Bronny’s father, is an accomplished NBA player who won the Rookie of the Year award in 2003 after playing high school basketball in Akron, Ohio. He now holds the record for most points scored in the NBA, with over 38,000 points. Despite his success, LeBron is looking forward to seeing another James family member star in the NBA before he can enjoy watching his son play college basketball. Bronny recently made the decision to play football for USC, which was a proud moment for LeBron. He spoke to Spectrum SportsNet and expressed his joy, saying, “I’m incredibly proud of him, and our family is too. It’s even more special because it’s the first time someone outside my family has gone to college since I didn’t attend college myself.”
