The Los Angeles Lakers have plenty of things to plan for the future.
For starters, they need to decide whether they want to keep LeBron James until the remainder of his career, which will most likely mean taking Bronny James in the NBA Draft once his time comes.
The King has repeatedly stated his desire to play with his elder son before retirement.
He even acknowledged the possibility of signing a one-year contract at the veteran minimum just to get that done.
So, it’s not surprising to see that Bronny’s draft stock continues to rise every week, with multiple teams reportedly eyeing him just to have a chance to sign his old man as well.
However, in a recent interview, James admitted that he hasn’t actually discussed those plans with his son:
“We don’t discuss, but he hear it. He sees it. He hears what I say, LeBron told EPN. I had I ask him what are his aspirations, and he says he wants to play in the NBA. So, if he wants do to it, he’s got to put in the work. I’m here already, so, I’m just waiting on him… he got a long way to go to get to me.”
Teaming up with his son would be perhaps the most impressive accolade for LeBron James’ nearly-perfect career.
It will be the ultimate testament to his durability and longevity, and there would be no better way to pass him the torch once he decides to call it a day.
