LeBron James Gets Angry About Bronny James Question
LeBron James got angry about a Bronny James question this week.
Following the Los Angeles Lakers’ 100-92 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, James expressed annoyance at one particular postgame query.
A New York reporter asked James point blank: “If your son gets drafted by the Knicks one day, would you consider playing with him here?”
James did not take kindly to that question.
My son’s in the ninth grade, man,” he replied.
“I’m trying to worry about what project he’s gotta turn in tomorrow. That’s what we’re worried about right now.
“That’s what’s most important: school, home and being the best big brother he can.”
They really asked LeBron if he would consider playing for the Knicks if they draft Bronny 😂😂😂
“Man my son is in the 9th grade man”

It is unclear why James was so put off by that question, since he talks about Bronny’s NBA future more than anyone.
“You want to ask me what is the greatest achievement of my life?” he said previously.
“If I’m on the same court as my son in the NBA. That would be number one in my lifetime as an NBA player.
“I’ve thought about it because my son is about to be 14, and he might be able to get in there a little earlier.”
Aside from LaVar Ball, it is hard to think of a single dad who is more well-known for his support of his son’s basketball future.
Bronny is currently a freshman at Sierra Canyon High School.
As a freshman, he is still some ways away from having to make any concrete decisions on his basketball-playing future.
