The Los Angeles Lakers played Friday night in Miami and will meet the Hawks in Atlanta on Sunday, and LeBron James decided he wasn’t going to waste his day off in the Southeast.
Instead, James chartered a jet to travel to Ohio, where his namesake son, known as Bronny, will be playing against James’ alma mater.
“If you ask me what’s been the only sucky thing about this season so far is that my son has played like six games into his freshman year and I haven’t seen one,” James said after Friday night’s game, via ESPN.
“I love what I do. I don’t take this for granted. This is a dream come true. But missing my son, you know Bron Jr, missing [my other son] Bryce’s first game the other day when we left for Orlando, his first game of the season. Missing my daughter at gymnastics and things of that nature, and I understand the business, but it sucks.”
