Does Bronny have long Covid?
Elon Musk suggested that the COVID vaccine may have played a role in the cardiac arrest experienced by USC basketball player Bronny James during a workout session in Los Angeles.
The 18-year-old, son of LeBron James, lost consciousness but was revived and is currently in stable condition at a local hospital. Musk, the CEO of Tesla, who bought Twitter for $44 billion last year and rebranded it as “X,” tweeted that while we cannot attribute everything to the vaccine, we also cannot completely dismiss its possible involvement.
“We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing.”
“Myocarditis is a known side-effect,” Musk said.
“The only question is whether it is rare or common.”

We revealed the last photo of Bronny in which he appeared to be sweating profusely. Another theory is Heat + dehydration definitely can cause that, but he would need to be very depleted electrolyte wise.

There’s also another peculiarity to this story, this exact thing happened to Bronny’s teammate Vince Iwuchukwu who was hospitalized last year around the same time.
Elon mentioned myocarditis, a rare inflammatory heart condition, as a known side effect of the mRNA vaccine for COVID-19, particularly in cases involving adolescents and young adult males, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Musk referred to CDC data, which reported 635 cases of myocarditis among 54.8 million doses of the vaccine administered to children aged 5 to 17 as of May 2022. The CDC clarified that any health problem occurring after vaccination is considered an adverse event and can be caused by the vaccine or be coincidental. While LeBron James has mentioned that his family has been vaccinated, there is currently no evidence linking his son’s cardiac arrest to the vaccine.
The James family released a statement confirming the incident and thanked the USC medical and athletic staff for their prompt response and care. Bronny was taken to the hospital after a 911 call was made, and he was unconscious at the time.
James, who hopes to play in the NBA alongside his son, expressed gratitude for the support and asked for privacy while updates are provided on Bronny’s condition.
