With four NBA titles, four NBA MVPs and the distinction as the league’s all-time leading scorer to his credit, LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has accomplished almost everything in his career thus far.
However, the Lakers superstar has one more goal he wants to achieve before his playing days come to an end, and that’s to play alongside his son Bronny James in the NBA.
LeBron was recently asked who he’d most like to play with in the league, and he didn’t hesitate to say his son is at the top of his list, even though Bronny still has yet to play a game in the college game.
LeBron on who he wants to play with the most:
“Bronny is No. 1 on my f—— list.”

Here are a few reactions from fans about James’ comments about his son:
I don’t know if I’d want my dad being on my team as a rookie, especially lebron. Just gonna be in his shadow and people won’t treat bronny the same as if he was a rookie alone on a team.

At this point in time, LeBron’s future is up in the air, with no telling if he wants to stay with the Lakers beyond this season, especially if the team fails to make the NBA playoffs.
Although LeBron will turn 39 in December and has struggled to stay healthy the last few seasons in Los Angeles, the superstar forward seems to fully intend to continue playing until he can play alongside his son.
The team that eventually drafts or signs Bronny, if he proves promising enough to make the league, will see a giant boost in ticket sales, with LeBron expected to sign with whatever team brings in his son.
Anything can happen between now and when Bronny is presumably in the league, as LeBron is only getting older, and there’s no guarantee that his son will make it to the league.NEXT: NBA Insider Gives Latest Update On Collective Bargaining Agreement Talks
