LeBron James Makes Bold Claim About How Long He Wants To Play

LeBron James wants to play in the league long enough to team up with both of his sons.

On Tuesday, LeBron was featured on the latest issue of Sports Illustrated alongside his sons Bryce and Bronny, who both currently play for the same high school team.


While speaking with Sports Illustrated , LeBron said that he was planning on keeping an eye on team’s future draft picks for the chance to play alongside both his sons when they’re old enough to get in the league.

“I like to throw things out in the airwaves, but I’m not one to [say] what’s going to happen in the next two to three years,” LeBron told Sports Illustrated. “I am a visionary, but I’m also a guy that lives in the moment. I’d definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, things of that nature; 2026, ’27. I pay attention to that type of stuff.”

LeBron remains confident that he can stay in the league long enough to play with his sons.

“I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it’s all up to the body, but more importantly, my mind,” LeBron told SI. “If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky’s not even the limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see.”

While Bryce is only 15 years old, Bronny is 17 and is already being called a “potential NBA point guard” by ESPN scouts.


“Where I would like to see him grow is as a one-on-one creator of his own offense. You don’t often see him put together ballhandling sequences that lead to him getting all the way to the rim, or much shot-making off the dribble. I think Bronny has some NBA potential as a backup point guard. I would like to see him settle into college and continue to grow more comfortable finding his own offense, but he’s a good, smart player.”
