As Your Content readers know, Basketball icon LeBron James has broken his silence following the recent health scare of his son, Bronny, who experienced a cardiac arrest during a basketball training session at USC earlier this week.
The 38-year-old Lakers legend took to Twitter on Thursday to share an update on the situation, assuring fans and well-wishers that his family is “strong and resilient.”
“We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and prayers sent our way,” LeBron posted. “Your support has been a beacon of strength for us. We are all doing well, safe, and healthy, and we feel your love. We will share more when we are ready, but for now, I want to express how much your support means to us. #JamesGang.”
LeBron was seen arriving at Cedar Sinai Hospital on Tuesday, masked and carrying what seemed to be an iPad. Bronny had undergone a cardiac screening several months ago as part of a program for potential NBA players, with the results being normal.
A representative for the James family confirmed on Tuesday that Bronny had experienced cardiac arrest during practice the previous day. “Medical staff promptly treated Bronny and transported him to the hospital,” the representative stated. “He is currently stable and has been moved out of the ICU.”
The cause of the cardiac arrest experienced by Bronny, a McDonald’s All-American and 4-star recruit, remains unknown. The 6-foot-3 combo guard, who is about to start his freshman year at USC, was unconscious before being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
LeBron and his wife, Savannah, have requested privacy during this challenging time for their family. “LeBron and Savannah would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the USC medical and athletic staff for their unwavering commitment to the safety of their athletes,” the family statement read. “We kindly ask for respect and privacy for the James family and will provide updates when more information is available.”
Just two weeks ago, Bronny was seen attending the 2023 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles with his parents and siblings, brother Bryce, 16, and sister Zhuri, 8.
