His Lakers star dad LeBron made a similar statement during an interview with Spectrum in May. “First of all, congratulations to Bronny on his decision he made.

Obviously, I didn’t go to college.”

“It’s just a proud moment to see my son go to college, and he’s the first one to go college in my family. Super duper proud, super emotional, but just super duper excited and happy for his journey,” he concluded.
