LeBron James Breaks Silence on Teenage Son’s Cardiac Arrest as More Details Emerge

LeBron James has spoken out for the first time since his 18-year-old son, Bronny, suffered cardiac arrest during a basketball workout at USC on Monday.

The Lakers superstar, 38, took to Twitter on Thursday to address the serious medical emergency and shared that he and his family are “doing great.”

“I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers,” James wrote.

“We feel you and I’m so grateful. Everyone doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us! #JamesGang.”

James was photographed arriving at Cedar Sinai Hospital on Tuesday wearing a face mask and carrying what appeared to be an iPad.

CNN reported Wednesday that Bronny had a cardiac screening several months ago as part of a program for prospective NBA players and the results came back normal.

A James family spokesperson confirmed Tuesday in a statement that Bronny suffered cardiac arrest while practicing the day prior.

“Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital,” a James family spokesperson said at the time. “He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU.”

It is unclear what caused Bronny, a McDonald’s All-American and 4-star recruit, to suffer cardiac arrest.

According to TMZ, the 6-foot-3 combo guard — who’s entering his freshman year at USC — was unconscious before he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The outlet obtained audio from a 911 call, which was reportedly made at 9:26 a.m. from the Galen Center, where USC practices.

James and his wife, Savannah, asked for privacy in the wake of their oldest son’s health scare.

“LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes,” the family statement read.

“We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update the media when there is more information.”

Two weeks prior, Bronny attended the 2023 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles with his parents and siblings, brother Bryce, 16, and sister Zhuri, 8.

Bronny, who turns 19 in October, is draft eligible in 2024.

The teenager has not yet directly addressed the situation publicly.

  • Rita says:

    Suffering a CARDIAC arrest damages the heart. The only was he will be draft eligible is if daddy bribes a doctor. If he does that his son’s fate is sealed.

  • Bob says:

    LeBron will blame a Caucasian! Sorry for Bronnie having the problem. Can we just not see articles on LeBron and his family
