Mark Cuban Says He Wouldn’t Burn A Second-Round Pick On LeBron ‘Bronny’ James Jr.


LeBron James is a freak of nature. He’s in his 19th year in the NBA, still hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down and arguably still is one of the best players in this league at age 37.

But when you think about the NBA average, which James clearly is no part of, the question of a possible retirement often is the elephant in the room for players in their mid-thirties. LeBron though has no plans of retiring before 2025. That’s when his son, LeBron James Jr., could play in the NBA.

Bronny is currently a junior at Sierra Canyon School, and has become one of the top recruits in his class. According to some reports, LeBron James will be willing to leave the Lakers, or any team for that matter, to have the opportunity to play alongside his son.

But many question the talent of James Jr., and are under the impression that the hype he generates is solely because of his superstar father.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, for example, now revealed that he wouldn’t pick Bronny up on name alone, and that he wouldn’t even burn a second round pick for him.

Per the “Pardon My Take” podcast:


“I don’t know. I don’t know. It depends on the circumstances and how good Bronny is. Would I just burn (a second-round pick) just to burn it? Probably not. And again, we’ll have this guy named Luka (Doncic) who is really, really good. And so it would really depend on the team that we have around him.”
