Lebron James, in an episode of “The Shop”, revealed that his son Bronny James would be the first person on his list when asked about whom would he like to play in the NBA, Stephen Curry being second.
Lebron James is probably one of the greatest NBA players in the history of the sport with 19 seasons, 18 All-Star appearances and 4 MVPs. The basketball legend along with his friends on an episode of “The Shop” revealed a number of interesting facts.
LeBron was asked about who would he like to play in the NBA with, to which he responded
“Bronny is No. 1 on my fucking list. He’s No. 1 on my list. I want to play with for sure … Not too long ago, I said, I asked him, I said, ‘What you want to do with this? Like, you want to get to the pros? What do you want to do?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Cause I want to make a name for myself.’ … And when I heard that, ‘Well, let’s fucking get it.“
Bronny James, LeBron’s 17 year old has a history of basketball from middle to high school and could probably carry LeBron’s legacy or maybe even surpass him. He is just a year away from being eligible for the NBA draft and could be seen on the floors real soon.
“My last year will be played with my son,” James said. “Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.“
Bronny being raised by an NBA legend may have a lot of help in understanding the game down the line, but LeBron setting the bar a little too high for the youngster can also attract a lot of criticism and expectations. Bronny was previously named LeBron James Jr. But, he decided to give up the name and changed his name to Bronny and is on a way to make a name for himself. This shows that LeBron’s eldest son is as adamant as the superstar and will stop at nothing to chase his dreams.
Gunna in the episode, jokingly said that little James would surpass LeBron to which he responded “Nah! he can’t beat me“, although Bronny surpassing LeBron would definitely be a matter of pride for the NBA legend.
