Superstar NBA player LeBron James has got his wish and will play with his son in the NBA after The Lakers drafted his son Bronny James.

History will be made as there has never been a father-son duo playing in the NBA at the same time, but now the pair are set to be teammates after Los Angeles selected 19-year-old Bronny James with the 55th pick in the second round of the draft.

LeBron James has been quoted as saying: ‘’I’ll do anything to play with my son’’, and after a major heart-health scare last year for the youngster, the father-son duo will begin training with the Lakers in coming months.
