Gloria James wrote a heartwarming message to his son LeBron James for Father's Day. James has been a father since he was 19 years old when his first son Bronny was born. He has become a role model, not just for his sons, but also for many around the world.

In a post on her official Instagram account, Gloria greeted LeBron with nothing but love for the special holiday. She also shared a bunch of images featuring him and his children, Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri, over the years.

"Happy Father’s Day son. You are the epitome of being a father. Enjoy your day. You deserve all that God has to offer🙏🏾. Love you. You’re Mama 🖤🖤🖤🖤," Gloria wrote.

LeBron James was raised by his mother Gloria as a single mother in Akron, Ohio. His father, Anthony McClelland, was not involved in his life growing up because of his troubles with the law. It didn't matter as Gloria did all she could to provide for herself and his son.

Bronny and Bryce James honored their father LeBron James on Father's Day via social media. Bronny shared a photo of them together practicing on the court. They are gearing up for a busy summer, with Bronny getting ready for the NBA Draft and LeBron getting back into playing shape ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics.

On the other hand, Bryce had a simple message to his father on his Instagram stories. He also shared an image of himself with his father during a basketball game. The LA Lakers legend was showing support for his son in a game featuring Sierra Canyon High School.

"Happy Father's Day dad. love you," Bryce wrote.

LeBron James set for a busy offseason

At the age of 39, LeBron James will have a very busy offseason due to his potential free agency and participation in the 2024 Paris Olympics. But first, James will likely be on-hand when Bronny James enters the NBA Draft, wherein he's expected to get selected in the second round.

"The King" is expected to opt out of his contract with the LA Lakers and become a free agent. While all signs point to James signing a new deal with the Lakers, some teams might try to lure him out of Hollywood such as the Cleveland Cavaliers or OKC Thunder.

James could stick to the Lakers, especially if they draft Bronny and make them the first father-son duo to play together in NBA history. The four-time MVP also dismissed the notion that he's no longer chasing championships. However, he might not be able to do that in Los Angeles given that they're still trying to find a new head coach.
