Life appears to have returned to its usual rhythm in the James household.
LeBron, Bronny, and Bryce came together at a recent game at Dodgers Stadium, marking a reassuring shift after a cardiac arrest episode that cast a shadow of concern. Looking ready to take on the world, the trio stepped out in a heartwarming display of resilience, showing the world that they would not let anything stop them.
LeBron James and Bronny James Back In the Spotlight After Scary Episode
The 20-time ESPY Awards winner reposted a video from professional baseball player Mookie Betts’s page to his Instagram story. In the footage, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder could be seen hitting the ball with his bat twice before cutting to LeBron clapping from his seat in the stands.
The clip captioned, “When the King tips his crown… you do the damn thing twice. 👑 Right back at ya @kingjames,” then showed Betts saluting the basketballer, who tipped his hat with a bow towards him.
In LeBron’s story, he wrote across the video, “You already know my brother!!! 🙏🏾✊🏾👑.” According to ET, the NBA star and his children wore bright smiles while relishing the enjoyable game, which ended with a 3-1 victory for the Dodgers.
The outing held extra significance for the 38-year-old as it aligned with the team celebrating his impact on the Los Angeles sports scene through a unique LeBron James bobblehead.
Adding to the moment, the icon marked the moment with a lighthearted snapshot of his figurine, shared on his Instagram story. The day also concluded on a heartwarming note as the Dodgers organization gave the actor a generous contribution to the LeBron James Family Foundation.
Capturing the significance of the gesture, the father-of-three shared a snapshot of where he received a substantial $100,000 donation check from the organization.
This is a refreshing update from the heartbreaking event that happened in late July. In case you missed it, the entrepreneur’s first son faced a cardiac episode during basketball practice at the University of Southern California.
According to sources, the 18-year-old’s condition was designated as a Code 3, necessitating his transfer to the hospital by ambulance from USC’s Galen Center at around 9:26 a.m. that same day.
Later, it was reported that he was discharged from the hospital after a three-day stay. A representative for the James family confirmed to PEOPLE that Bronny’s condition had stabilized, prompting his transfer out of the intensive care unit. The medical facility also released a statement on its website:
“Thanks to the swift and effective response by the USC athletics’ medical staff, Bronny James was successfully treated for a sudden cardiac arrest. He arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center fully conscious, neurologically intact, and stable. Mr. James was cared for promptly by highly-trained staff and has been discharged home, where he is resting. Although his workup will be ongoing, we are hopeful for his continued progress and are encouraged by his response, resilience, and his family and community support.”
Bronny James Achieved Milestone With Nike Endorsement Deal
Last year, The Blast shared that in an impressive stride toward the Hall of Fame, the budding athlete formally became a part of Nike’s basketball lineup, much like his father. ESPN reported the noteworthy achievement after the renowned sportswear brand unveiled its endorsement agreement.
The brand disclosed that they had signed name, image, and likeness (NIL) contracts with five standout amateur basketball players. Leading the list was LeBron’s son, who was already involved in his father’s entrepreneurial endeavor.
Back in 2015, the former Miami Heat player had solidified a lifetime partnership with Nike. Since then, numerous iconic footwear designs have been created, among them his signature shoe, the Nike LeBron 20.
With the Sierra Canyon High School senior’s exceptional basketball prowess and his father’s enduring affiliation with the sportswear label, it was only a question of when, not if, Bronny would secure a contract with Nike.
The four-star recruit expressed his pride in this accomplishment: “For as long as I can remember, Nike’s been a part of my family. Getting a chance to team up with them and continue my family’s legacy both on the court and in the community is wild — it really means a lot to me.”
