LeBron's first son, LeBron James Jr. (known by friends and family as Bronny), was born in 2004 and graduated from Sierra Canyon High School in California in May 2023. Bronny is arguably LeBron's most well-known child due to his own basketball skills, which he had been building while playing for his high school's team.

Bronny now attends the University of Southern California (USC) where he plays combo guard position for the Trojans.

In July 2023, Bronny sent his friends and family into a panic after he went into cardiac arrest while participating in a workout at USC, per AP News. Stephanie Rosa of the LeBron James Family Foundation later issued a statement saying, “It is an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect which can and will be treated." Thankfully, Bronny is doing better these days and has returned to the court.
