LeBron James' most recent extension will keep him with the Lakers until 2023, conveniently the same year his son, Bronny, is set to graduate from Sierra Canyon High School.

As coincidence doesn't seem likely in this case, it appears as though James may be setting himself up to join his son on whichever he gets drafted.

At this point, it's still just speculation, but the Lakers superstar did provide some evidence that he is, indeed, shaping his own basketball future around that of Bronny's.

2023 is still a ways down the road, and it doesn't need to be said that a lot could happen. Between LeBron's age, the threats that COVID-19 continues to raise, and no way of knowing the future, it's hard to say for certain that we'll see LeBron and his son suit up for a team together.

But if there ever was a father/son duo capable of doing such a thing, it has to be those two. LeBron has already defied Father Time by being the MVP runner-up in his 17th year, so it's not impossible to think he could squeeze out a few more.

As for Bronny, his path to the NBA is certain.

Now, it's just a matter of when and where.
