LeBron James on Bronny playing at Oregon next season: 'There's a chance'

- by

LeBron James said Sunday that “there’s a chance” his oldest son will play at Oregon next season and that he discussed the possibility with Altman last summer during an encounter on the Nike campus. “Dana knows,” James said. “He knows the interest. And it’s mutual.” James confirmed Altman hasn’t offered Bronny a scholarship, but dismissed the notion that it could mean the interest is actually a little more one-sided than LeBron had suggested. “I think Bronny can go to any college he wants to,” LeBron said.

Days after LeBron James lamented the Lakers’ lack of size, the front office makes a trade for Rui Hachimura, a former top-10 pick who saw his role sapped this season and had recently said he wanted to be somewhere where he is appreciated: ocregister.com/2023/01/23/lak…2:00 PM

LAL-POR thoughts:
-Bryant should start even when AD is back
-LBJ. Nothing else to say.
-Blazers are Raps West. Love all the pieces, but don’t love them all together.
-Simons shot a lot and should have shot more.
-Is Eubanks better for Portland right now than Nurkic? Close! – 8:51 AM

Kendrick Perkins @KendrickPerkins
37 and 11 & 4 coming back from down 15 on the road? Another one of those defy the impossible performances that we take for granted by Mr. LeBron James. Never mind me tho, Carry on… – 11:54 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
25-point comeback tonight matches third-largest for a LeBron James team in his career…

Wow Lakers. Big time comeback win in Portland after being down 25 at halftime. This tied the largest halftime comeback win of LeBron James’ career and the largest in the regular season. @ESPNStatsInfo pic.twitter.com/usQCGd2unm11:29 PM
Allen Sliwa @AllenSliwa
What a great WIN for the Lakers…From down 24, to a 9pt W (121-112)…At halftime, thought they had no shot, battled again, so impressive…
-Lebron 37pts 11rebs
-T Bryant 31pts 14rebs
-Schroder 24pts 8ast 6rebs – 11:28 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Final: Lakers 121, Blazers 112
The Lakers pull off a huge comeback and win in Portland to improve to 22-25. This is a game that could impact the jockeying in the West standings in a few months. LeBron had 37 & 11. Thomas Bryant had 31 & 14.
Up next: vs. LAC on Tuesday. – 11:28 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
What a wild win for the Lakers, coming back from down 25 to beat the Blazers, 121-102, validating the MEM victory. LeBron 37p 10r; Thomas Bryant 31p on 12-of-15 14r; Schroder 24p 8a 6r; Troy Brown Jr. 10p. – 11:26 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
At this rate, Thomas Bryant will pass LeBron for the all-time scoring lead sometime in 2037. – 11:23 PM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
Given the way the Clippers tried to position themselves as the alternative to the Lakers’ glitz and glamour back in 2019-20, it’s amusing to note that the Lakers’ current starting (and tonight finishing) lineup is basically LeBron and role players working as hard as they can. – 11:18 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
LeBron makes a pair of FTs to go up 107-103 with 4:36 to go, and Chauncey calls TO.
Curious to see how Darvin closes. The starting lineup has been pretty effective tonight in the first and third quarters. – 11:13 PM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
The Lakers have to feel good about winning the five-plus minutes LeBron James rested at the end of the third quarter and start of the fourth, making it a two-point game with 7:58 to play. Portland was plus-11 in the seven minutes LeBron sat in the first half. – 11:06 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Third quarter: Blazers 91, Lakers 86
This game has gone back and forth, with LA outscoring Portland 40-20 in the third to make things interesting. LeBron has 33 points & 9 rebounds. Thomas Bryant has 22 points & 8 rebounds. Dennis Schröder has 16 points, 6 rebounds & 7 assists. – 10:58 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers basically just crossing their fingers every time LeBron has the ball – 10:52 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LeBron’s been attacking Portland’s rim throughout LAL’s 3rd Q push, and is now 9 of 10 inside, accounting for 18 of his 31 points.
Portland, who ranks 23rd in the NBA in paint points allowed, have seen LAL go 23 of 29 tonight.
Their 25-point HT lead is down to 6 at 88-82. – 10:49 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
This has been an absolutely incredible third quarter from LeBron James. On both sides of the ball. Maybe his single best quarter of the season – 10:48 PM

LAL have bounced back from their 2nd Q struggles with a strong 3rd Q thus far, as LeBron capped a 19-8 run with 1 of 2 FT’s.
LAL are within 14 points at 79-65 after trailing by 25 at halftime. – 10:39 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Dennis tosses an alley-oop to LeBron that gets the many Lakers fans in this crowd fired up. Patrick Beverley screams at Damian Lillard at midcourt after the play as Blazers call timeout. He might have pointed at the scoreboard: Portland still leads by 17 points. – 10:35 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
LeBron still gets up. – 10:34 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Halftime: Blazers 71, Lakers 46
The Lakers were outscored 45-13 in the second quarter — arguably their worst quarter of the season (the 51-21 third quarter in Dallas on Christmas was probably worse). LeBron James has 17 points. Thomas Bryant has 14. LA has 12 turnovers. – 10:13 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
… and LeBron airballs one right before halftime.
Portland 71, Lakers 46 as we go into intermission. One of the worst quarters of the season, as the Blazers outscored LA 45-13 in the second frame. Yikes, yikes, yikes. – 10:08 PM

Lakers got out to a hot start, but Portland caught up. LeBron with 12 points, Thomas Bryant with 10. – 9:39 PM

A terrific start for the Lakers has them up 15-2 in Portland, with a perfect 5 for 5 from the field including a pair of @LeBron James 3’s.
Blazers are 1 for 5. – 9:17 PM

More on this storyline

“He’s going to make his own decision,” James said. “But there’s a chance.” UO and James share an obvious connection with Phil Knight and Nike. It would be foolish to ignore that as a factor, but James on Sunday put the focus instead on what Altman has built in Eugene and what it could do for Bronny’s career. -via Oregonian / January 23, 2023
He spoke The Oregonian/OregonLive on his way out of Portland’s Moda Center after scoring 37 points in a Lakers win over the Trail Blazers. “All I have to do is pick up the phone,” he continued. “If Bronny says he wants to go there, he’s good enough.” -via Oregonian / January 23, 2023
