Bronny James Focused on NBA Dream, Not Playing with Dad LeBron

Bronny James, the 19-year-old basketball prospect and son of NBA legend LeBron James, has stated that he is solely focused on realizing his dream of making it to the NBA and not on the prospect of playing alongside his father.

As the 2024 NBA draft approaches, Bronny is determined to follow in his father’s footsteps and secure a spot in the league. Despite LeBron’s expressed desire to play alongside his son before retiring, Bronny remains steadfast in his ambition to carve out his own path in the NBA.

Bronny also addressed speculation that a franchise might select him in the draft as a ploy to attract his father to the same team, dismissing such claims and reaffirming his focus on his personal basketball journey.

The teenager’s determination to pursue his NBA aspirations comes in the wake of a significant health scare. Bronny suffered a cardiac arrest in 2023 but has since returned to the court after receiving treatment. Despite lingering concerns, his passion for the game has remained undiminished, with Bronny expressing that his love for basketball outweighs any fears he may have.

But Bronny, who suffered a cardiac arrest in 2023, just wants to fulfil his dream of making it in the NBA.

“I would be happy about getting to the league instead of me thinking about playing with my dad. That’s not my mindset at all,” Bronny James said.

“My dream has always just been to put my name out, make a name for myself and, of course, get to the NBA. I never thought about playing with my dad. But of course, he’s brought it up a couple times.”

The teenager also dismissed claims a franchise could select him in the draft just in an attempt to lure his father to the same team.

James returned to basketball nearly five months after his cardiac arrest, making his college debut in December after the issue was deemed treatable.

After he was cleared to play again, he said he still worries about “everything that could happen” but that his love for the game “overpowers” his fears.
