Bronny James, son of four-time NBA MVP LeBron James, recently announced his intentions to play college basketball at the University of Southern California.
Bronny was inside the Lakers’ home stadium Saturday night to watch his father and the Lakers take a 2-1 lead over the Warriors in the Western Conference semifinals. LeBron James’ immediate attention remains on trying to win his fifth NBA championship.
But Bronny’s verbal commitment to USC means LeBron James is one step closer to reaching his long-term goal of playing alongside his son in the NBA.
Now, Bronny will play someone whose father was also a great NBA player.
