That’s what happens when you’re one of the biggest names in basketball and one of the most important athletes in the history of modern sports.
James is so big, in fact, that even his children are creating serious headlines.
Bronny, the older James child, has been making waves during his high school basketball career.
People are already speculating about which college he will attend and, beyond that, which NBA team might end up drafting him when he becomes eligible for the big leagues.

The latest rumor says that Oregon is now the front-runner to land James when he goes to college.
But his dad was very quick to shut that speculation down.
“He hasn’t taken 1 visit yet and has only had a few calls with coaches and universities. When Bronny makes his choice you’ll hear it from him,” James promised on Twitter.
Make no mistake: this isn’t the last rumor you’ll hear about the younger James.
All In The Family
The interest in Bronny goes beyond the fact that he’s the son of King James.
He’s proving himself to be a very talented young player.
He still has room to grow and isn’t currently a first-round draft pick just yet but he’s getting better and shows an awful lot of skill when on the court.
Interest in the young James son has only grown because his father has repeatedly said he is eager to play with him.
In fact, he has even said he would initiate a trade to make that happen.
That means that whenever James Jr. enters the league, he could really shake up the entire NBA.
