Asked about watching his son play in Saturday's showcase, LeBron said he still thinks about playing w/him one day. He said Bronny's dream is to play in NBA:
"He has my support and my blueprint. With health and a little bit of luck, that would be the ultimate thing." - 4:02 PM

The defeat dropped L.A. - one of the oddsmakers' favorites to win the championship - to 8-9 with more than a fifth of the season in the books. "It's never, 'We got 65 games left,'" James said when asked if he can take the long view considering the Lakers' early injuries and how much of the 82-game regular-season slate remains. "We damn sure need to play better, no matter who is in the lineup. We have our system and we need to obviously fast-track it and get better with it so we can play, no matter who is out on the floor, we can play at a high level. … There's no level of panic. But there should be some sense of urgency anytime we take the floor." -via ESPN / November 20, 2021
