Los Angeles Lakers, currently in a slump with four consecutive losses, faced another setback with a 14-point defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies. 

LeBron James, addressing the team's struggles, candidly stated, "We just suck right now." However, his attention shifted to his son, Bronny, as he made a bold claim following the game.

During a post-game press conference, Austin Reaves inquired about Bronny's role in the upcoming USC game, questioning if he would be in the starting lineup.

LeBron asserted that it was time for Bronny to start, emphasizing, "He could play for us right now. Easy. Easy." Despite Bronny's modest collegiate stats and draft projections, James's confidence in his son remains unwavering.

The Lakers, initially expected to dominate the Western Conference, find themselves in 11th place with a 17-19 record, heading into a crucial showdown with the red-hot Clippers.

LeBron, visibly frustrated, continues to perform exceptionally, averaging 25.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.4 assists per game at 39 years old. 

As the Lakers grapple with unmet expectations, James's comments reflect both concern for the team's current situation and unwavering belief in his son's potential. (Source: CBS Sports)
