NBA Superstar LeBron James tells the world what he believes is the best part of his 2-year, $85 million extension with the Lakers.
Less than a week ago, LeBron James signed a hefty 2 year, $85 million extension with the Los Angeles Lakers. By the time the King plays out his contract, he would have completed 20 years in the league.
The money isn’t the greatest part of the contract for the King. The satisfaction of knowing that a team is willing to bet on a 35-year-old for 2 more years isn’t the best part. The best part for LeBron James is that his extension runs through till the year his eldest son LeBron James Jr.(Bronny) graduates from high school.
LeBron James excited by the idea of playing with/against his son in the NBA
LeBron teased us with the same idea back in 2018 as well, but this time it seems like he’s taken more concrete steps for the same.
LeBron on his 2-year extension with the Lakers;
“The best thing about it is the year I’ll be a free agent will be the same year my oldest son graduates high school.” 👀

Bronny James is a sophomore at Sierra Canyon High School in California. The 6’2″ guard came off the bench for the nationally ranked high school team. It would be interesting to see how Bronny develops as a professional prospect in the upcoming time. He has shown potential but it would be important to see whether he capitalizes on it.
Apart from that, there is also the NBA’s collective bargain agreement, which does not allow players to apply for the NBA draft until they are 19 years old. LeBron James hopes this would change by the time Bronny graduates.
As of now, LeBron has bigger fish to fry. He has to try and defend his title. In his entire career, he has been able to defend his title only once.
