LeBron James is still going strong after 19 years in the NBA. Last season he average over 30 pointseight rebounds and six assists per game and posted a 26.2 player efficiency rating, ranking fourth in the league.
While he’s playing better than any 37-year-old, no one can perform at this level forever. James has made it clear that one thing he wants to do before he retires: Play same team as his son Bronywho is 17. That’s still a long way off, as Broney isn’t expected to make the same leap from high school straight to the NBA that his father did in 2003.
However, he is one of the best defenders in the country – No. 8 at his position and No. 49 nationally according to 247Sports.
Broney (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) is one of the most sought-after recruits in the 2023 class, and the competition to land his commitment will be fierce. Despite a recent report that Oregon has appeared as the favorite, LeBron says that’s not the case. James took to Twitter on Tuesday night to deny the report, saying that Broney has yet to take a single visit and when he makes his choice, we’ll hear from him.
As for the future of LeBron himself, recent reports show he will sign with the Lakers for one more season plus a player option for another year.
