Let’s go Bronny… we’re all pulling for you”: The sports world responds to LeBron James’ son’s cardiac arrest.
USC student Bronny James had a heart attαck during a basketball practice on Monday. The news spread quickly on social media when it came out Tuesday morning.
A spokesman for the James family said that LeBron James’s 18-year-old son is doing well right now.
Bronny James, who played football at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon High School last year, has received a lot of thoughts and well-wishes for a quick recovery. Buffalo Bills back Damar Hamlin was one of the first to tweet his support. Hamlin had a heart attαck during a Monday night game in January and was only cleared to play football again in April.
Hamlin tweeted Tuesday morning, “Prayers to Bronny and the James family as well.” “I’m here for you guys, just like you’ve been there for me the whole time.” Other people who are happy for him are former Lakers Magic Johnson, Metta World Peace, and Mychal Thompson; tennis legend Billie Jean King; college basketball broadcasting legend Dick Vitale; NBA players Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, Donovan Mitchell of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks; the Miami Heat, which LeBron James led to two NBA titles and four finals appearances; and former NFL players Dez Bryant and Robert Griffin III.
Flea, who plays bass for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and is a huge Lakers fan, also sent good feelings to the young player.
