On Tuesday, a trailer for the highly anticipated video game God of War Ragnarök showcased Los Angeles Lakers legend LeBron James and his son, Bronny James. The promotional clip not only featured the James family but also had the star power of renowned actors John Travolta and Ben Stiller, along with their children, endorsing PlayStation.
LeBron James has undeniably created a remarkable portfolio that guarantees his induction into the esteemed Hall of Fame. With an impressive track record of four NBA championships, four MVP awards, and 18 All-Star selections, among numerous other individual honors, he has solidified his position as one of the greatest basketball players in the history of the sport.
While LeBron continues to chase more championships, he has another aspiration on his agenda before he retires and puts away his jersey for good: the opportunity to play alongside his son, Bronny, in the NBA. In a candid conversation with Jason Lloyd of The Athletic in February, LeBron expressed his desire to spend his final season on the court alongside his son, emphasizing that he is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve this goal. The driving force behind this aspiration is not financial gain; rather, it is the heartfelt desire to share the court with his son for a memorable season before concluding his illustrious career.
According to the composite rankings from 247Sports, the 2023 college basketball recruiting class has a highly regarded 4-star prospect who stands at 6’3″ and plays as a guard. This promising player will be eligible for the 2024 draft.
In James’ recent contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers, there is a player option for the 2024-25 season. This means that James has the choice to opt out of the contract and potentially join the team that drafts his son if his son decides to play college basketball for just one year.
On another note, the upcoming release of God of War Ragnarök marks the ninth installment in the popular video game franchise that first debuted in 2005. This single-player action game is set to be available worldwide on November 9th, and it will be playable on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
