While Bronny James begins to make a name for himself and stay out of his father’s shadow, he says that it was never his dream to play alongside him.

During Bronny’s media interviews at the NBA draft combine, he told reporters what his dream is for his career.

“My dream has always just been to put my name out, make a name for myself, and get to the NBA,” he said. “I never thought about playing with my dad — but of course, he’s brought it up a couple of times.

“Everything that follows my dad, people just try to link me with that and all the greatness that he’s achieved. I haven’t done anything yet, so I feel like there needs to be that divide between Bronny and LeBron.”

LeBron wants to play with Bronny in the NBA

LeBron has made it known numerous times that he wants to play with his son, but he also knows that may not be his son’s goal.

“I’ve done what I’ve had to do in this league, and my son is going to take his journey,” LeBron said. “And whatever his journey — however his journey lays out — he’s going to do what’s best for him. And as his dad —  and his mom, Savannah, and his brother and sister — we’re going to support him in whatever he decides to do. Just because that’s my aspiration or my goal, doesn’t mean it’s his. And I’m absolutely OK with that.”

Bronny has stood out so far in the draft combine, making 19-of-25 shots during the three-point drill, and scoring four points with four rebounds in 19 minutes during the scrimmage.

Shams Charania reported that Bronny is expected to stay in the 2024 NBA Draft despite still having the flexibility to go back to college.
