Savannah James hinted at Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James staying in the NBA until his son Bryce makes it to the NBA.

It has been reported that the Lakers star wants to team up with his eldest son Bronny, who is currently enrolled at the University of Southern California. Bronny James could enter the 2024 NBA Draft if he plays well enough in his freshman season with the Trojans.

Bryce James, who turned 16 years old in June, is still a few years away from being eligible for the NBA draft. Still, it appears there’s a chance that his father will look to stick around in the NBA to get a chance to play alongside him.

If the Lakers superstar is able to play with both of his sons in the NBA, it would be an incredible feat. LeBron James has already played at such a high level during his entire NBA career that he’s broken the NBA’s all-time scoring record.

To this point, he’s shown very little signs that his game is slipping. Instead, it’s been his health that has hurt him.

Since coming to the Lakers ahead of the 2018-19 season, LeBron James has played in more than 56 games in a single season just one time. Despite a foot injury limiting him last season, the Lakers still made the Western Conference Finals.

He’s still playing at a high level at this stage of his career, as the 38-year-old averaged 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 32.1 percent from beyond the arc in the 2022-23 regular season.

Obviously, the Lakers and their fans would love for the future Hall of Famer to keep playing with the franchise, which may mean having to bring his sons into the fold as well. The four-time champion is under contract with the Lakers through the 2023-24 season and has a player option for the 2024-25 campaign.

If the Lakers star is able to hold up for a few more seasons to get a chance to play with both of his sons it would be a tremendous accomplishment. He’d also have a chance to build on his scoring record to potentially put it out of reach for any player coming behind him.
