How LeBron James And His Son Could Become The First Father-Son Teammates In The NBA
LeBron James just celebrated his 29th birthday and hasn't even peaked as a player yet. Now in his 10th year in the NBA, it is not inconceivable to imagine him playing another 10 years. Surely, Father Time will slow LeBron eventually, but so many of his abilities have nothing to do with explosive athleticism.
Keep in mind that Derek Fisher, Ray Allen and Andre Miller are 39, 38 and 37 respectively. Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Antwan Jamison are all 37 as well, and LeBron combines many of the elements which made all of them so successful.
Which brings us to LeBron James, Jr. The eldest of the James children, Jr is nine years old, which means he will be eligible for the 2023 draft. So LeBron's 20th season could be LeBron Jr's rookie year.
There has never been a father/son duo who played in the NBA at the same time. You know that LeBron would love to suit up with his son, and he has the clout to make that happen. Imagine; LeBron retires for his son's freshman year of college, and then signs as a free agent with the team that drafts his son.
Wild, but not impossible.
