LeBron James sounded like a proud papa while talking about his two sons deciding to wear his jersey number.

On Monday, LeBron James Jr. aka “Bronny” played his first 8th grade basketball game for Crossroads School in Santa Monica, Calif. When he did so, Bronny was wearing No. 23, the number his father wears for the Los Angeles Lakers and wore while with the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron’s other son, Bryce, has been wearing No. 6, the number LeBron wore with the Miami Heat.

On Tuesday, James had the look and sound of a proud father when talking about his sons wearing his number.

James recently talked about how he “would love” to play with Bronny in the NBA some day. If James is able to continue preserving his body for a few more years, he could very well get that opportunity. It would be pretty cool to see one wearing No. 23 and one in a No. 6 jersey.
