LeBron James would skip one of the Los Angeles Lakers‘ games if it coincided with Bronny James’ debut as a USC Trojan. His teammates react when he talks about missing a game, to which LeBron responds by claiming family comes first.

LeBron James Will Skip Their Game Without Any hesitation

Dave McMenamin of ESPN shows the arguable GOAT talking about potentially missing a game because of Bronny’s college hoops debut.

The four-time NBA champ talks about how excited he is to see his son play. Additionally, he also appreciates the time and effort his son has put in to get better at the sport.

“It’s his passion and his joy. He loves playing it, loves competing, loves being out there having a good time, been doing it for a long time. He’s put the work in. Looking forward to his first game.”

The 38-year-old proceeds to talk about possibly missing a game with the team. That’s if, and only if, his son’s debut is on the same day as a Lakers game.

However, he also says that he already warned his teammates in advance. Meanwhile, his teammates respond in jest, feigning ignorance and disappointment.

“I already told my teammates that if they play on the same day we playing then I might have to catch them next game.”

After the ribbing from friends and teammates, he focuses on what’s important—family.

“Family over everything, champs. I definitely gotta see Bronny’s first college game whenever he’s cleared and ready to go.”

The basketball Community Is Hyped For Bronny’s Return

The 19-time All-Star has his priorities straight, especially after Bronny’s cardiac arrest. However, USC recently cleared Bronny to play for the Trojans, which LeBron is excited about.

This prioritization isn’t surprising, as the forward is always mentally ahead of everything.

Bronny’s return to basketball is exciting for many of the basketball community, with Sham Charania‘s announcement receiving 11K likes and 1.3M views.

While the team seems in good spirits, his pass to Anthony Davis‘ open look in their most recent game, which gets blocked, seems to take the wind out of his sails.

During the game, they eventually fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Despite Davis’ 31 points and LeBron’s 21, they lost with a 110-133 score.

Despite this, the Lakers are still in a decent spot, ranking seventh in the Western Conference with an 11-9 record.

Are you excited to see Bronny make another splash in the basketball world?
