LeBron James admitted that he would love to have the opportunity to play on the court with his son, Bronny James. 

"I want him to be in the NBA. I am not going to lie,” the 37-year-old said on HBO’s Uninterrupted. "I want to be on the court with him. I think that will be an unbelievable moment."

"[Bronny’s] about to be a junior so the years, it could get close, but we should see, but I want him to get to the NBA," he added.

Bronny, 17, will be eligible to play in the NBA in 2024, Sports Keeda reports. The high school athlete is expected to graduate in 2023, however, he'll be faced with a rule change that the NBA and National Basketball Player's Association have in place.

The NBA’s 2006 injunction states that “U.S. players must be at least one year removed from high school and 19 years of age (by the end of that calendar year) before entering the draft." Prior to the rule change, high school players could opt to enter the draft directly out of high school. 

The ruling stands on the belief that players who spend more time in college, as opposed to an early draft entry, have more time to develop their skills prior to entering the league.

Bronny, who plays guard for Sierra Canyon School in Los Angeles, was featured on Amazon Prime’s docuseries Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. He currently ranks 52 on the list of top 2023 basketball recruits.

Although it’s too early to see what lies ahead professionally for Bronny, LeBron has high hopes for the future.

"My son right now is in high school and enjoying what being a teenager is all about,” he said, according to CBS Sports. “But [battling his son in the NBA] would be pretty cool to go on my résumé."
