LeBron James is in the midst of one of his best individual statistical seasons at age 33 and in his 15th season in the league. He has averaged 26.9 points, 9.0 assists, 8.4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.9 blocks in 66 games so far this season. This season has featured a lot of Ups And Downs for King James and the Cavaliers. They went on a winning streak early in the season, they also went on a losing streak throughout the middle of the season, and recently they have completely revamped their roster but are still having ups and downs as a team.

With the new guys on the roster including Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr and George Hill, the Cavaliers have played reasonably better basketball than they were before the trade deadline, but they still are not playing up to the standards of Cleveland basketball.

But although LeBron James is not focused on the future, and is rather focused on the present and doing his best to get his team on the right track heading into the postseason, the future is still nearing. And not only might LeBron James find himself on a different team next season, but a few years down the path he might find himself playing against or alongside his own son.

LeBron-LeBron Jr duo?

LeBron James is 19 and a half years older than his son LeBron James Jr, who is currently taking over the internet with his performances and highlights. And if Bronny James can continue to climb the ranks and continue to progress in his skill on the basketball court, he could be looking at a draft spot in the 2023 NBA Draft.

Although 19-20 years is a long time, there is still a slight chance that they could be in the NBA at the same time, whether that is being teammates or not. We see players like Vince Carter who is 41 years old, playing in the same league with Lonzo Ball who is aged 20. That’s a difference of 21 years, and if LeBron is able to maintain himself into his late 30’s, something similar could be happening with LeBron James and his son.

So there is a chance, that if both LeBron James and LeBron James Junior can stay healthy and perform their talent at a high level, in roughly 5-6 years, they could be in the same league together.

LeBron talks about it

One thing that might prevent this from happening is if King James decides to retire from the NBA mid-way through his 30’s like Kobe Bryant.

Maybe once he starts to decline he might decide it’s better for his legacy to end his career now. But while we’ve been waiting on a LeBron decline to come, we still haven’t seen it, and who knows - he still might be the best player in the league in five years time. And according to LeBron James, he will be willing to hang around in the league if that means playing with his son.

LeBron on the chance of playing alongside Bronny says, “I’m 33, he’s 13… if he has a chance, and it seems like he can make it, you got to, absolutely." And on passing the torch, "Go ahead son. you got it from here."
