LeBron James is opening up about a scary period for his family.
Less than three months after his 18-year-old son Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest during basketball practice at the University of Southern California, the NBA star revealed how the incident impacted him and shifted his mindset as he looks to the future.
“Obviously I’m gonna dedicate this season to Bronny, because of the incident that happened this summer,” the Los Angeles Lakers player said during a press conference Oct. 2. “And the understanding that it just puts everything into perspective. No matter what’s going on, in your life at that point and time, the only thing that matters is your family.”
Of his son—who he shares with wife Savannah James in addition to kids Bryce Maximus, 16, and Zhuri Nova, 8—LeBron continued, “To see what he had to go through, or what he’s been through, over the last few months, you know it’s been a lot. I can only imagine how it’s been for him, because it’s been a lot for me, it’s been a lot for our family.”
