Ready to see LeBron James and his son play in the NBA?

This could become a reality sooner as Bronny James declared for the NBA Draft.

"I've had a year with some ups and downs but all added to growth for me as a man, student, and athlete," he posted on Instagram. "I've made the decision to enter the NBA Draft while maintaining my college eligibility, and will also be entering the NCAA transfer portal."

Hailed as a four-star recruit, Bronny was named a McDonald's All-American as a senior in high school.

 The 19-year-old made headlines last year after he was hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest. This happened back in June, while participating in a practice at the University of Southern California.

He was found to have a congenital heart defect that was treatable.

He made his debut for the USC Trojans in December, some five months after the incident.
