LeBron James Promises To Miss Lakers Game If Bronny's USC Debut Overlaps

LeBron James

LeBron James is vowing not to miss Bronny‘s first college basketball game … revealing he will skip his day job with the Lakers to watch his son play for USC if their schedules overlap.

The King spoke with reporters following L.A.’s 133-110 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday … hours after it was announced his oldest son was cleared to return to hoops following his cardiac arrest in July.

LBJ said it’s a “proud moment” for his entire family … and he’s so excited for 19-year-old Bronny, he’s already let the team know he won’t be available to play if his kid’s debut falls on the same date as a Laker game.

“Looking forward to his first game,” James told reporters. “Whenever he’s cleared and whenever he’s ready to have his first game, I already told my teammates that if they play on the same day we’re playing, then I’m going to have to catch them the next game.”

LeBron’s teammates jokingly let out groans after his comment … but he made it clear the James Gang is his priority.

“Family over everything, champs. I love y’all. But, I definitely gotta see Bronny’s first game whenever he’s cleared and ready to go.”

As we previously reported, Bronny will have a final evaluation with USC staffers and participate in practice next week … and will make his first game appearance soon after.

The Lakers and USC have five potential scheduling conflicts over the next couple of weeks — Dec. 28 and 30, and Jan. 3, 13, and 17.

There’s a chance LeBron won’t have to miss any Laker games at all … which would be good news for fans, as the Purple and Gold currently sit at 11-9 on the season.
