Since entering the league as an 18-year-old rookie in 2003, LeBron James has won and earned everything you could want as an NBA player.
At 37 years old and entering his 19th NBA season, James has little to do other than become the all-time leading scorer and chase the shadow of Michael Jordan’s six championships. If there’s one goal, one pipe dream that King wants to achieve, it’s to play with the greatest in the NBA, Bruin James.
Broney is a 17-year-old senior at Sierra Canyon High School and is a consensus top 50 high school prospect entering his final year of high school play.

Broney will be the next in a line of second-gen Hoppers started by Rick Barry’s three sons, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Domantis Sabinis, as well as four NBA kids on the Warriors’ roster in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins. and Gary Payton II.
Whether Broney or his younger brother Bryce have the game to play in the best basketball league in the world remains to be seen. As the HS years went by, Broney gradually became a better player, and received scholarship offers from Kentucky, Memphis, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, and USC. Bryce recently accepted an offer from Duquesne University.
“I like to throw things on the airwaves,” James said in Sports Illustrated. But I am not one. [say] What will happen in the next two or three years. I’m a visionary, but I’m also someone who lives in the moment.
Ironically, the idea of LeBron and Brony sharing the court didn’t come up until that fateful day in February, when he told The Athletic that he wanted to play his last year in the NBA with his oldest son and that “it wasn’t about the money at that time.” , but the idea seemed “too good” for their eldest son.
Savannah herself knows that idea is something “near and dear” to her great owners’ hearts.
We don’t even talk much about the future. I put it up in the air because I want to talk to the basketball gods out there and see if things can come to fruition. Throughout my career I have always set goals, talked to the basketball gods, and they all listened. We hope you can listen to this last one. LeBron James said.
All that being said, the reality of the guys in the James Gang playing together in the NBA is still a few years away. Broney isn’t eligible for the draft until 2024, and Bryce isn’t until 2027. A key list the four-time Finals MVP knows well. Smart enough to throw down the possibility of playing until he was 43 years old, Tom Brady joins the ranks as a legendary athlete playing at a high level into his 40s.
“I feel like I can play for a while. So it’s all about my body, but most of all, it’s my mind. If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, the sky is the limit for me. I can go past that. But we’ll see,” LeBron said.
For now, Bronnie and Bryce will have millions of eyes on their high school show. From the real hardwood to social media, videographers and photographers capture them from the sidelines looking for a viral shot or mix. It’s the fact that their Hall-of-Fame father hosted as a sophomore. For better or for worse, they will be.
