Can LeBron James make it in the NBA long enough to play with his son?

In an interview on Uninterrupted, LeBron James said his greatest achievement would be if he was on the same court as his son, Bronny, in the NBA. James is still playing at an MVP-caliber level and his son is gaining a lot of publicity for his play on the court. Father-son combos are not unheard of in pro sports. Still, the younger James is almost 14, meaning LeBron James will be 38 by the time Bronny is eligible to play. That's a tall order for someone with 15 years of mileage on their knees. What do you think? 🏀

LeBron James is still considered the best player in the NBA by many. At 33 years old, he's still playing like an MVP. 

Bronny James is already getting offers from top schools like Kentucky and Duke. By the time he is 19, the elder James will be 38 years old and still a productive player in the league—if his trajectory stays steady. It's only a matter of time before father and son will be sharing the NBA spotlight together.

LeBron James is dominant now, but things can change quickly. An injury can devastate his career at any given moment and LeBron has 15 years of mileage on his knees already. 

Aside from that, making it to the NBA is no easy task and nothing is guaranteed. Just ask Gary Payton II and Jeffrey Michael Jordan. The chances of the two Jameses sharing an NBA court is slim to none.
