LeBron James: Playing With son in NBA Would be 'Greatest Achievement'

LeBron James has accomplished a lot in his 15 years in the NBA. In fact, “a lot,” is a massive understatement. James is a 14-time All-Star and All-NBA member. He’s a three-time champion and has a Finals MVP award to go with each of those rings. He’s been named to six All-Defensive teams and has led the league in scoring once. He’s been named AP Athlete of the Year and Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year twice each. Yet his greatest achievement – in his mind, at least – may not yet have come. James told UNINTERRUPTED that his greatest achievement would be sharing an NBA court with his son.

James has two sons: LeBron Jr., whom James Sr. affectionately calls “Bronny,” and Bryce. When he looks forward to playing with or against his son, James is presumably referring to Bronny. Bryce is still just 10 years old, while Bronny is 13. Bronny will enter eighth grade this fall. Let’s say he’s a one-and-done in college and goes straight to the NBA. In that scenario, LeBron Sr. would be 40 years old for Bronny’s rookie year.

It’s possible; 27 players have played to the age of 40 or older, and James’ body is showing no signs of bailing on him.
