Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James hasn’t been shy about wanting to play in the NBA with his son Bronny. But the 19-year-old says he isn’t thinking about the possibility just yet.

Bronny James was the most talked-about participant throughout the recently concluded NBA draft combine. The former USC swingman showed out in various drills during the prospect showcase at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Ill.

Bronny on Tuesday spoke to reporters after the final day of the combine. The youngster was asked what a potential NBA team-up with his 4-time MVP father would mean to him. LeBron’s eldest son pushed the idea aside — at least for now.

“When I get there, I don’t think it would just be like, me and my dad. I would be happy about getting into the league instead of me thinking about playing with my dad,” Bronny said.

“But that’s not my mindset at all. I’m just trying to put in the work and see where it takes me.”

Bronny James is reportedly serious about forgoing his remaining college eligibility to make an early leap to the pros. James spent just one season at USC, where he averaged 4.8 points and 2.8 rebounds over 25 games played. He has until June 16 to withdraw his name from the 2024 NBA Draft.

James converted some former non-believers by performing well at the combine. However, one detail from Bronny’s combine measurements could hurt his draft stock.
