LeBron James reflects on special day for family following Lakers’ victory over Warriors: “One of the best days of my life”

LeBron James was beaming with pride and happiness after his son Bronny announced his commitment to play college basketball at USC. Following the Lakers’ win against the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals, James spoke to reporters about the special day for his family.

He expressed his joy over Bronny’s decision, calling it “one of the best days of my life.” As the first member of his family to attend college, James felt that it was a momentous occasion for his family. He said, “Super proud of him, our family is proud of him. For me personally, it’s even more special to me because it’s the first time someone out of my family is going to college. Obviously, I didn’t go to college either…”

James also shared his own Instagram post, congratulating his son on his decision. He was overjoyed to see his son walk a different path than him, and become the first member of the James family to attend college.

The Lakers’ win against the Warriors was the cherry on top of a perfect day for James. He said, “I couldn’t lose today, no matter the outcome of this game, I couldn’t lose today, personally. But I’ll take the cherry on top with this W though.”

Despite not scoring in the first quarter, a first in his 275 career postseason appearances, James had 21 points on the evening. The Lakers went on to defeat the Warriors, 117–87, taking a 2–1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals series.

For James, the day was about more than just basketball. It was about celebrating his son’s achievements and the next step in his family’s journey. He expressed his gratitude for the moment and the pride he felt in his son.
