Will LeBron James and LeBron Jr, aka Bronny, become the first father-son duo in league history? After the vast extension signed by the King this Wednesday evening, the ideal scenario is emerging more and more.
Is LeBron James immortal? The question will eventually arise. While he was linked to the Lakers until 2021 (or even 2022 via his player option), the King surprised everyone by signing a significant extension that will see him stay in the city of angels until he is 39 years old … minimum!
Minimum, because LeBron could well have an excellent reason to extend his tenure in the league: his son, Bronny James. For a few years now, the Chosen One has been talking about this sweet dream of sharing the parquet floors with its elders one day. Is it achievable? After the latest events, the answer is clearly yes
Born in 2004, Bronny James will graduate from high school in the spring of… 2023, when his father’s contract expires. He will then be able to join the NBA … if it changes the rules by then and abolishes the compulsory year in college or pro, to once again allow the direct passage from high school to the big league – like LeBron had done in his time.

LeBron James’ contract runs until 2023 – when his son, Bronny, drops out of high school and may have the option of running for the NBA Draft if the league and NBA change the rule from high school to pro. “.
That the fans of this eventuality reassure themselves: the change should indeed take place soon. For 2023, and even already for the 2022 vintage, to allow Victor Wembanyama and the other nuggets of this incredible class to land quickly.
Once this formality has been acquired, Bronny will have “just” to progress enough to have the NBA level, while LeBron would pile up a year to live this crazy experience. After the first season of discovery in high school, he intends to take a step this year towards Sierra Canyon. In any case, at 16, his recent physical change is impressive, so much so that one photo left everyone speechless.
