LeBron James and the Lakers punched their tickets to the In-Season Tournament championship Thursday night, but there was a different matchup the NBA superstar said he was pumped about — Bronny‘s first-ever game at USC.
King James addressed the big news of his eldest son being slated to make his big debut this weekend with reporters on Thursday … and he explained how it’ll mean “everything and more” to see his kid fully return from his cardiac arrest in July.
“Looking forward to that for sure,” LBJ said after the Lakers routed the New Orleans Pelicans in the semis in Vegas. “Super excited for that moment.”
Bronny is expected to play in USC’s home game against Long Beach State on Sunday … after completing his first full-contact practice on Thursday.
LeBron explained he is excited to see Bronny run out on the court with his teammates following his medical clearance … but also when he enters the game — whenever that may be.
“It’s a big milestone for our family, for sure,” LeBron said. “It’s another step for him on his journey in his basketball career. Looking forward to it.”
Of course, LeBron previously stated he was willing to miss one of his own games in order to be there for his son … so we take it he will be front and center to soak it all in on Sunday.
Luckily, the Lakers will have a few days off after going up against the Indiana Pacers in the IST finals … so no need to call in sick!!
