Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James defended his eldest son Bronny, who is getting ready for the 2024 NBA Draft, and Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark against critics.

“I’m getting the same thing from watching my son, who’s a 19-year-old, kind of getting a lot of animosity and hatred towards him when he’s just a kid trying to live out his dream,” said on Mind the Game podcast, via NBA Central on X.

“You know, there’s a very small number of men and women that actually get to live out their dream of playing the professional sport. And we have grown-ass men and women out here doing whatever they can to try to make sure that does not happen. That is the weirdest thing in the world, but it is what it is, and I’m glad that Caitlin has a great head on her shoulders.”

This is not the first time that James publicly defends Clark. He recently slammed her critics on social media.
