Will Bronny and LeBron James join forces?
LeBron James is facing speculation about his potential retirement.
The Lakers were recently swept by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals. Following their loss, Chris Haynes of TNT and Bleacher Report claimed that James is contemplating retirement.
James revealed his desire to play his last NBA season with his son, Bronny James, who is eligible for next year’s draft. Bookies.com shows that the Houston Rockets and Charlotte Hornets are both considered strong candidates to land Bronny and LeBron with odds at +950. The Detroit Pistons follow at +1000.
Well Houston, this would be interesting ?

The Cleveland Cavaliers have the second-best odds at +1200. Nevertheless, the Rockets, Hornets, and Pistons are clear contenders for early-round picks in next year’s draft. Many scouts anticipate that Bronny will be among the top 10 picks. Recently, Bronny announced his commitment to the USC basketball program after playing for Sierra Canyon School.
Despite being 38 years old, LeBron James delivered an incredible MVP-like performance last season, averaging 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game.
