Bronny James smiling

A photo of LeBron James standing next to his son Bronny James has gone viral since being posted to X on Sunday.

LeBron hopes to form a father-son duo with Bronny in the NBA but that might have to go on hold another season as the younger James would be doing himself a disservice by entering the NBA Draft this year given the numbers he’s put up in his first term with the USC Trojans.

The guard averaged 4.8 points and 2.1 assists as a freshman, which is likely to leave him undrafted if he enters in 2024.

Meanwhile, an AI-altered photo is doing the rounds online showing the former Sierra Canyon star standing next to a miniature version of his father.


The post has attracted more than 1.5 million views at the time of writing, with most people expressing interest.

LeBron James And Bronny Have A Decision To Make

LeBron James and his family will have a big decision to make in the coming months. Bronny played 25 games for the Trojans last season, having missed eight games due to his scary heart incident last summer.

He could opt to head straight to the draft after playing a season of college ball or return for the 2024/25 season and help the Trojans with their transition to the Big 10.

Lebron, though, has said he will leave the decision up to Bronny.

It’s up to him,” he said during NBA All-Star Game Weekend last month, per ESPN. “It’s up to the kid. Obviously, we gonna go through the whole process. He’s still in season now, has the Pac-12 tournament coming up. … We gonna weigh our options, and we gonna let the kid make the decision.
