LeBron James has constructed a formidable legacy that will be laborious to replicate. The moment when LeBorn will officially take the decision to hang up his sneakers in a few years, it will be the end of an era. The question that might emerge is, who will inherit the throne from King James?
The primary candidate for the ideal position is none other than his elder son, Bronny James. Meanwhile, he will soon be appearing on major stages, hoping to emulate his father’s accomplishments. Bronny turned eighteen on Thursday, October 6, and his star dad had a message for him.
LeBron James greeted his son, a happy birthday on Instagram, along with a vintage photo of the two of them playing basketball while LeBron played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a recent tour of Bronny to Ohio State. The All-Star delivered a teary and elated message to his son,
“How is this kid 18 years old today y’all!!??!! I can’t deal with it. 🥺🥺. I’m so proud of the young man you’ve become kid! Continue to be YOU throughout your journey because it’s simply better that way! And I’ll be right beside you whenever/however needed! Love you Young 🤴🏾 @bronny!!! Happy Bday”

The Lakers legend has been quite public about how proud he is of his son in front of the media. Bronny’s dedication is something that can be seen by everyone. He prefers not to be known by the surname of his father. In this alternative, he is keen to create his own identity.
The future of Bronny has been a hot topic in the draft town, and not only because of his father’s fame. As per media combined rankings, he is a 4-star prospect and the No. 45 player in the class of 2023.
The king has made it clear that it is his ambition to play with his son in the NBA one day, and his current contract with the Los Angeles Lakers includes a player option for the 2024–25 season. Perhaps he will wait until 2024 to see whether his son gets picked before making his next contract choice. The NBA universe is eagerly anticipating their first on-court meeting together.
