Bronny James, who has received national attention through his high school basketball career, announced earlier this month that he will be playing basketball at the University of Southern California in the autumn.

In recent years, LeBron James has expressed his hopes of one day playing with the young man in the NBA. But the Lakers forward’s recent comments about the future of his career suggest he may have slacked off that desire.

He shocked the basketball world during a news conference this week when he hinted he might retire from the sport after his team lost to the Denver Nuggets in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals.

As for his dream of Bronny James eventually playing in the league, the dad said he just wants his son to embark on whatever ‘journey’ it may take.

“Whatever his journey goes, he will do what is best for him.” LeBron James told ESPN. “As his father, his mother Savannah and his brother and sister, we will support him in whatever he chooses to do. Just because it’s my aspiration or goal doesn’t mean it’s his. And I totally agree with that.”
