Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are always rooting for their biggest star, LeBron James.
But they are also rooting for his son, USC student Bronny James.
Bronny was supposed to be suiting up for USC already but a serious health issue prevented him from joining the team so far this season.
But LeBron said his son is headed in the right direction and his first game is coming soon.
According to Bleacher Report, James said that Bronny is “almost there” after he was seen performing pregame warmups with USC before their game on Sunday.

Back in July, Bronny suffered cardiac arrest while working out with his team on the court.
The shocking and scary medical situation landed the up-and-coming star in the hospital but he was released shortly thereafter and thankfully made a full recovery.
Nevertheless, some people weren’t sure if he’d ever play basketball again but the entire James family promised he’d be back on the court as soon as possible.
USC head coach Andy Enfield recently said that James was making progress but wouldn’t give a definitive date about when he’d be back with the team.
Because of his skill and his family’s name, James receives a lot of attention and people are expecting great things from him.
The hype is very real and fans are ready to see what James can do.
He will join a successful USC team that currently has a 3-1 record for the season.
If things go very well with USC and James remains healthy, he could soon find himself playing with or against his father in the NBA.NEXT: Damian Lillard Details How Star Teammate Tried To Bring Him To Bucks
