According to a statement from a family spokesperson, Bronny James, the eldest child of NBA superstar LeBron James, experienced a cardiac arrest while practicing basketball at the University of Southern California. He was taken to the hospital on Monday for treatment.
He is now out of the ICU and in stable condition. The James family asks for privacy and thanks the USC medical and athletic staff for their dedication to athlete safety.
Bronny, who is 18 years old, recently graduated from Sierra Canyon High School in Los Angeles this spring. He will now be playing basketball for USC as a freshman. He is a 6-foot-3 combo guard who was considered a four-star recruit. He showcased his talent in the McDonald’s All-American Game in March, which is an event that highlights some of the best high school basketball players in the country. In his senior year of high school, he had an average of 14.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.7 steals. With his skills, he hopes to help the USC team to successfully make it to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth consecutive year.
“So damn proud of you kid!” his father wrote on Instagram after Bronny committed to attend USC. “I have no words besides I LOVE YOU!!!”
James, who is 38 years old, will soon start his 21st season in the NBA. This will also mark his sixth season playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. Having won four NBA championships and been MVP four times, James has expressed his desire to play in the NBA with his son Bronny. Bronny will be eligible to join the NBA next year, and playing with him is one of James’ final goals.
