    The only way Bronny goes pro this year is if his daddy pressures the Lakers to waste a draft pick on him, or worse, gets the kid onto the team via a 10-day contract. Such is the ego of ‘King’ James…he merely wants to make a historic splash to bolster his name, the son’s individuality be damned. If the older James wants to be on the same team as junior, how about retiring and coaching the youngster?
