In a shocking and tragic turn of events, Bronny James, the son of NBA legend Lebron James, collapsed on the court during practice on Monday. The 18-year-old has been preparing for his first season of college basketball.
According to TMZ Sports, a 911 call was made at 9:26 AM Monday from USC's Galen Center -- the venue where the team plays and practices -- and the 18-year-old hooper, who was unconscious, was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
A spokesperson from James' family shared the news on social media and wrote, "Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. The medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update the media when there is more information."
The statement continued, “LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes."
Bronny’s high school career came to an end and he averaged 14 points, a team-high 5.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.8 steals per game for Sierra Canyon in the 2022-23 season, one of the most stacked high school teams. He also made it to the top 10 of ESPN's first-ever mock draft for the 2024 class.
