LeBron James was asked about his reaction to his son Bronny James’ college basketball debut. James said he will be present courtside for Bronny James‘ first game.

James was speaking with a reporter from Spectrum Sportsnet after their 133-110 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He mentioned that if his Los Angeles Lakers have a game the same day as his son’s debut, he plans to skip the Lakers game.


LeBron James said that he has already told his teammates on the plane to Oklahoma about skipping the Lakers game. To this his teammates replied;

“What? No………..” to which James replied;

“Family over everything, champs. I love y’all.”


Obviously, this is part of some friendly banter between James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates.

LeBron James has a long history of keeping the camaraderie between his teammates. In front of reporters James’ teammates were trying to embarrass the superstar.
