Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is proud of his son Bronny James, who is projected to be a first-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. According to ESPN's latest mock draft, Bronny James is expected to be selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 17th overall pick.

Bronny, who has completed his high school education, is now at USC and represents the USC Trojans. He has shown impressive skills and athleticism as a 6-foot-3 guard, playing alongside other top recruits like Amari Bailey and Shy Odom. He is also a part of the prestigious Nike EYBL circuit, where he plays for Strive For Greatness. 

LeBron James, who has expressed his desire to play with his son in the NBA someday, couldn't help but react to the mock draft on his Instagram story. He posted a screenshot 

of the projection and wrote, "Wellllll ATL shawty the #JamesGang will be pulling up!"

The four-time MVP also added laughing emojis, implying that he would be happy to join his son in Atlanta if he becomes a free agent in 2023. LeBron has a player option for the 2023-24 season, which means he could decline it and sign with any team he wants.

It is still too early to determine Bronny James' draft position, though. Before making a definite declaration, he still has one more year of college basketball. Depending on how well he performs and develops, his draft value may increase or decrease. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the Hawks will have the 17th pick in 2024, as it could change depending on their record and the lottery results. 

There is also a possibility that another team might trade up or down to get Bronny, especially if they want to lure LeBron as well. Regardless of where Bronny James lands in the draft, one thing is certain: LeBron James will be there to support him and cheer him on. The father-son duo has a close bond and a shared passion for basketball. They might even make history as the first pair to play together in the NBA.
