LeBron James’ son, LeBron James Jr., is only 13 years old but the kid is already separating himself from other young teenagers as one the best up and coming ballers. Given his talent level and pedigree, it’s certainly reasonable to believe that in 5-6 years Bronny will be among the players selected in the NBA Draft.
With LeBron showing no signs slowing down at the age 33 years old, it wouldn’t shock anyone if he’s still competing in the league when his son is eligible to make that jump to the NBA. LeBron has even discussed the idea playing with, or against, Bronny in the league sometime in the future.
“I’m 33, LeBron James Jr.] is 13. … If he has a chance to play in the NBA], and it seems like he can make it, you got to,” LeBron recently said, per ESPN. When the cameraman mentioned playing on the same team, LeBron added, “Absolutely. And as soon as we do it, go ahead, son. You got it from here.”
Twitter user @Shady00018 made that moment possible with some clever NBA 2K video editing, showcasing what the game would be like if LeBron and Bronny were running the floor together as members the Los Angeles Lakers.
The video even caught the attention LeBron himself, who shared the clip with his 39.6 million instagram followers along with the caption, “My Goodness this just gave me chills!Man S/O whoever made this!! This is UNREAL/RIDICULOUS!! #JamesGang👑#TheKidsFromAkron✊🏾.”
