LeBron On The Thought Of Him & His Son Playing On The Same NBA Team
After putting up his 14th career triple-double (28 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists) of the season and throwing down a windmill dunk in Tuesday’s game, 15-year veteran and Iron Man LeBron James said, “I’m like fine wine, I get better with age.”
It’s true. In season 15, James is some how having a season worthy of being compared to his best season: Either his 2012/13 MVP season with the Heat or 2009/10 MVP one with the Cavs.
At this rate, there’s no question he could easily play 20+ seasons. If he does, this brings up an entertaining question a reporter asked James earlier in the week: What if LeBron played six more years and his son, 13-year-old LeBron James Jr aka Bronny, made it to the NBA?
Reporter: In six years, what if you and your son could play in the league together? Are you going to be able to stay that long?
LeBron: If he has a chance and it seems like he can make it? What? Got to!
Reporter: Got to do the Griffeys.
LeBron: Oh, you got to!
Reporter: And same team?
LeBron: Absolutely. And as soon as we do it. Boom, go ahead son, you got it from here.
If you aren’t familiar with the Griffeys situation, back in 1990, the great Ken Griffey Jr (Jamal Crawford’s favorite athlete) played with his father, Ken Griffey Sr with the Seattle Mariners.
So in honor of the idea of the first father and son duo in the NBA, LeBron throwing down windmill dunks like he’s closer to Bronny’s age than his own and Bronny playing like a man among boys, here’s some highlights of the next Griffeys.
