LeBron James' future with the Lakers isn't set in stone as he has been vocal about wanting to play in the same NBA team as his son Bronny James who could be eligible for the 2024 NBA Draft and the future of the superstar would depend on the team that selects his son.

Despite many believing it would hurt Bronny to play alongside his father like recently former NBA player Austin Rivers expressed. Former NBA star Baron Davis believes that LeBron James’ son Bronny would benefit from playing alongside his father.

“Your daddy is LeBron James,” Davis told TMZ Sports. “I think it will do nothing but help him. You say it’ll enable him because your daddy on the team, but like, nah, that s— different,” Davis said. “That’s LeBron. LeBron’s a coach, a basketball genius and that’s his seed.”

Whether or not the elder James should team up with the younger James in the NBA has been a hot topic lately. Austin Rivers recently said that he doesn’t want to see the two join forces, and Stephen Jackson subsequently called out the 31-year-old for his thoughts.

Bronny James hasn't been a standout with the USC

The younger James has appeared in 16 games with the Trojans so far in the 2023-24 regular season, his freshman season with the team, and is averaging 5.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game while shooting 35.6 percent from the field and 27.1 percent from deep. The teenager hasn’t experienced much team success in his first season of college basketball. The Trojans own a 9-15 record on the season following their loss to the Cardinals and are losers of eight of their last nine games.
