LeBron James Says He Has An Eye On Which Teams Have First-Round Picks From 2024 To 2027 So He Can Potentially Play With His Sons Bronny And Bryce: "I Pay Attention To That Type Of Stuff."

LeBron James Says He Has An Eye On Which Teams Have First-Round Picks From 2024 To 2027 So He Can Potentially Play With His Sons Bronny And Bryce: "I Pay Attention To That Type Of Stuff."

LeBron James is a family man, first and foremost, despite all the celebrity and fame that has followed him his entire life. James' love for his wife Savannah is apparent, especially when he makes wholesome Instagram posts for her. His daughter Zhuri is also the apple of his eye, which he has often discussed. And while he has a lot of love for his sons Bronny and Bryce, there is now a different aspect to his relationship with them. 

Bronny and Bryce are both in high school now, playing basketball at a very high level. The sons of LeBron James may not be as hyped as he was coming out of school, but they are being noticed a lot. Bryce James, at 15, has already gotten offers from colleges to come to join their programs. And while their immediate future is of a lot of interest to fans, it's the larger scheme of things that excites people. 

LeBron James has created a lot of buzz in the NBA community by revealing that he would want to play with his son Bronny if and when he's drafted into the league. This has led to a lot of speculation as to where exactly that will be, and Bron has now revealed in a Sports Illustrated interview that he has an eye on which teams might be able to draft Bronny, as well as his younger son Bryce. 

“We don’t even really talk about the future too much,” James said. “I put it in the air because I like to talk to the basketball gods out there and see if things can come to fruition. I’ve always set out goals in my career, talked to the basketball gods, and they’ve listened to all of them. Hopefully, they can listen to this last one, too.

“I’d definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, things of that nature; 2026, ’27,” LeBron James said. “I pay attention to that type of stuff."

Even though LeBron James is 37, he just enjoyed one of the best scoring seasons in his 19th year in the league. As far as questions about his retirement go, Chris Paul got it right when he said it's not happening anytime soon. So there is a great chance that James will play for a while yet. 

Playing with Bronny and Bryce is contingent on if they can make it to the league. The way they've been training and playing, though, there will certainly be opportunities for them if they are willing to take them. And considering that James is still the face of the league, it would be unsurprising to see him make a situation happen that would allow him to play alongside both his sons in the NBA in the future.
