LeBron’s eldest son is yet to join a college but is one of the most talked about in the NBA. To be eligible in the NBA draft one has to be at least 19 years of age, and this October Bronny will turn 19. So that makes way for him to be eligible for the 2024 NBA draft. However, according to Shams Charania, there are talks on reducing the draft age from 19 to 18.
If this happens, Bronny will burst onto the scene just like his old man did in 2003. LeBron was drafted 1st overall from St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, in 2003, by the Cleveland Cavaliers. James has made his intentions clear of playing with his sons in the NBA. However, Bronny wants to play against him, rather than together with his father.

If the age is reduced from 19 to 18, there is a chance that he will be eligible for the 2023 draft, however, that is unlikely. LeBron is in his 20th season and must be feeling old, by the time Bronny is selected by an NBA team in the 2024 draft, LeBron will be entering his 22nd season in the NBA.
