Cover Sports Illustrated: LeBron James and His Sons, Bronny And Bryce ...

LeBron James continues to make this NBA off-season all about family, as he and his two sons win the latest cover of Sports Illustrated, depicting him wearing a black T-shirt bearing an image of his own first Sports Illustrated. His sons Bronny and Bryce stand alongside their father on a basketball court.

The Los Angeles Lakers star shared an image of the cover on his Instagram account with the caption "WHOA!!!! Just kids from Akron!!!" and tag his sons' accounts in the post.

The cover story, dubbed "The Chosen Sons," is a play on the publication's famous article about James when he was a junior in high school. One of the main topics of discussion is James' desire to one day play in the NBA with hiseldest son, Bronny, a desire he's expressed on numerous occasions in recent years.

"I like to throw things out there in the airwaves, but I'm not one to [say] what's going to happen in the next two to three years," he said. "I'd definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, etc."

Savannah James, LeBron's mother, refuted reports that their son intended to drop out of school, revealing that Bronny intends to pursue a college career. "I think it would be really cool for him to start his legacy there."

Bronny has only spoken to coaches on the phone on a few occasions and has yet to make any official visits to any college, but the rising senior has received interest from Memphis, Ohio State, USC, and several other programs.

When asked if fans might see the James clan on the court together in the future, LeBron appeared to be open to playing with Bryce one day.

LeBron responds to criticism of the "pressure" his statements about playing with Bronny have placed on his son, who would be eligible to enter the 2024 NBA Draft. "You will have five people who love you out of 10, then five people that hate you."
