Tony deleted his comment shortly after speaking his mind. However, it did not escape the internet police. Someone recorded his comment on the post and shared it on other social media platforms, sparking debates.

On April 5 this year, the oldest son of the LA Lakers star LeBron James declared himself for the upcoming NBA draft. He did so by posting a message on his official Instagram account. Ever since then, there have been multiple debates and discussions about Bronny's capabilities and whether he is ready to enter the NBA.

Some people believed it was the right time for the USC Trojans star to enter the league. Others thought he should play another year of college basketball as his stats don't back him up for professional play yet. A general thought going around is that Bronny James can sign a two-way contract that allows him to play in the NBA and the G-League simultaneously.

However, Bronny's agent and LeBron James' close friend Rich Paul has denied any possibility of that scenario coming true.

LeBron James could team up with Kevin Durant because of his son Bronny James

Fans could see two of the biggest stars of their generation LeBron James and Kevin Durant team up in the future, and it is possible because of Bronny James. King James has openly talked about his desire to play with his son in the NBA after which he would consider retiring from the sport altogether. Now that Bronny has declared for the NBA draft, the possibility of that dream coming true is higher than ever.

Bronny James has reportedly accepted a workout invite from the Phoenix Suns and will be working with them before the NBA Draft in June. Out of the 10 or more invites he received, the USC star has accepted only a few, including the Suns and the Lakers invites. If the Phoenix Suns draft Bronny in the upcoming draft, there is a possibility that they will sign LeBron James in free agency as well.

This move will unite two of the deadliest players of the 2010s and bring them together alongside other stars like Bradley Beal and Devin Booker. For now, the fans can wait and see how the situation unfolds at the NBA Draft in June.
