Lakers draft Bronny James: Ja Morant, Zach LaVine and other NBA players react to historic father-son coupling with LeBron

History was made in the second round of the 2024 NBA Draft.

The Lakers used the 55th pick in the draft to select USC guard Bronny James, son of LeBron James, who has spent the past six seasons with the franchise. Bronny James isn’t the first son of an NBA player to be drafted, but the timing is unique because his father is still active and preparing for his 22nd year in the league.

While LeBron James can opt out of the final year of his contract to become a free agent, it’s believed he will re-sign with LA to team up with his son, making it the first father-son team in NBA history.

The historic moment has sparked many reactions in the NBA world. Everyone took a moment to acknowledge the gravity of the moment.
