LeBron James joked that he was not sure his body would be able to meet the NBA requirements long enough to play at the same time with his son Bronny.
Bronny, 15, led the Sierra Canyon to a 59-56 victory at St Vincent-St Mary’s former high school on Saturday, with LeBron playing for his home state of Ohio.
The four-time NBA MVP was pictured bouncing up and down the field after his son stole the ball and put it in a basket in front of the final minute.
After the Los Angeles Lakers’ 101-96 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, LeBron was asked if he had thought about playing in the league at the same time as Bronny.
The 34-year-old said: “The way my body feels right afterwards is absolutely not at all. Through the grace of God and the grace of health, we will see what will happen but at the end of the day it is not promised that my son can reach this level. We don’t even discuss it.
“We live every day every day and think about how he can continue to be a good teammate, to be a positive role model for his little brother and little sister, and when he leaves home, he continues to hold the surname James to the maximum respect.
“Because it’s not just for him – and when I leave home, it’s not just for me – it’s for our family and what we’ve created.
“Being in the NBA is extra credit for life [goes]. If you are able to do that, you don’t consider it a given. Life, especially when you are raising a family.”
On his trip to Columbus, he added: “It was my son’s eighth school play and the first one I could live to have the whole family … all my friends and the people I grew up with were all My father, his mentor, and his father, Dru Joyce, were on the other hand coaching St Vincent-St Mary.
“It was a surreal moment, not only for myself, but also for my family and friends, that things have come full circle.
“Watching my son play at our home in relation to my alma mater, playing in front of our family and friends, they all told me I was like being back in high school again watching my son. moments in my life so far. “
LeBron had 32 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks as the Lakers extended their victory to seven games against the Hawks.
The 34-year-old clearly enjoyed the second quarter, pretending to block a shot by teammate Rajon Rondo and stretching Dwight Howard for a dunk with a pass between his legs.
“It was impressive, it had some instant clips,” coach Frank Vogel said. “It was great, it was a huge part of the win.”
