LeBron James admits he’s keeping an eye on which teams have future first-round draft picks as he plans to team up with sons Bronny and Bryce in the NBA
- LeBron James is ‘definitely looking at who got the first round in 2024-2027’
- Plans to play on the same teams as sons Bryce and Bronny when they enter NBA
- LeBron says they don’t talk too much about the future, he tries to manifest it
It has previously been mentioned as a possibility that LeBron James would consider leaving the Lakers to play with his oldest son Bronny James and it now appears that this is more LeBron’s plan than just a possibility.
LeBron revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Ballard that he set up his sites to play with his kids, even though he doesn’t talk to them often about it.
“I would definitely look at who got the first round in 2024, 2025, things like that; 2026, ’27.’ “I pay attention to that sort of thing,” LeBron said.
I feel like I can still play for a while,” said LeBron James. “So it’s all up to my body, but more importantly, my mind. If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated then the sky isn’t even a limit for me. I can go further than that. But we’ll see.’

Both of LeBron’s sons, Bronny and Bryce James, are currently rising stars in the world of high school basketball, and Bronny is currently going through the early stages of the college recruiting process.
Given that Bronny could leave for the NBA draft in 2024, after just one season in college, and LeBron’s recent contract renewal includes an opt-out clause for the same year, it would be the earliest that two-thirds of the James gang have played the same year. team.
“We don’t even talk much about the future.” “I’m putting it in the air because I like talking to the basketball gods out there and seeing if things can come to fruition. I’ve always set goals in my career, talked to the basketball gods and they’ve listened to them all. Hopefully they can listen to this last one too.’

LeBron’s stats still show that even at his advanced age, he can still be one of the most prolific players in the league if he’s healthy.
Last season, while single-handedly trying to get a poorly constructed Lakers team to the playoffs, he averaged 30.3 points, 6.2 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game.
He also averaged 37.2 minutes, which was his highest total since the 2016 season while still in Cleveland.
While it’s likely that LeBron will have to play a good number of minutes again this year if the Lakers are to have any hope of making the playoffs, let alone on the hunt for a title, it seems likely that Lebron’s minutes in the will decrease in the coming years.
A steady decrease in minutes would certainly help preserve LeBron’s body to help him achieve the goal of playing with both of his sons.
