LeBron James Has Played Against 6 Father-Son Duos During His NBA Career

LeBron James Has Played Against 6 Father-Son Duos During His NBA Career

LeBron James is a synonym for longevity, consistency, and domination. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is constantly proving doubters wrong, playing at the highest level when everybody thinks he's slowing down. 

The King keeps delivering at age 37, playing in his 19th season in the NBA, demonstrating he's far away from hanging the boots. James is having the greatest 19th season of all time, but that's not the only stat that surprises fans. He's been around for so long that has shared the court with two generations of players.

Recently, a LeBron Twitter fan account shared a stat that shocked a lot of people. So far, he has played against six sets of father-son duos, something remarkable for the Lakers player or anybody else in the history of the league. 

Bron has battled against Gary Payton and Gary Payton II, Kenyon Martin and Kenyon Martin Jr., Gary Trent and Gary Trent Jr., Rick Brunson and Jalen Brunson, Glenn Robinson and Glenn Robinson III, and Glen Rice and Glen Rice Jr.

He's done a terrific job during his career, dominating through most part of it, becoming one of the greatest players to set foot on an NBA court. The King is still thriving with the Lakers, although the rest of the squad is struggling to help the veteran lead the team to the top positions in the standings. 

James has earned MVP buzz during this season thanks to his impressive performances and that shows how great he still is. Even though playing against fathers and sons is already incredible to say, Bron's biggest goal is playing with his son Bronny in the future

Bronny is set to graduate in 2023, which is the year where LeBron's current deal with the Los Angeles Lakers ends. If everything comes together, we could see the King playing with his son, and that's something nobody has ever done before. LeBron is still unstoppable, and nobody knows when father time will catch up to him. 

Meanwhile, he's trying to take the LakeShow to the postseason and avoid the play-in tournament. LeBron has reshaped the definition of 'longevity' and we can't wait to see what's next for this man.
