LeBron James has recently said that it is his dream to play with his son in the NBA. But with Bryce turning out to be a revelation, he may just have a chance to play with both of them. While the chances of that happening certainly may be slim, but if anybody could it, it would be LeBron James. He had a historic 19th year in the league and he looks hungry for more in year 20. And despite injury scares here and there, LeBron looks determined to continue at the highest level.
