LeBron James has a strong relationship with his former Olympics coach Mike Krzyzewski. If his son LeBron James Jr., who often goes by “Bronny,” attends college, there’s a good chance it will be Duke.
Over the summer, when Bronny was thrust into the spotlight for his AAU play and his father’s team change, he attended camp at Duke with his team.
The Blue Devils, along with Kentucky, have made a “standing scholarship offer” to James, dating back to when he was still a preteen.
One oddsmaker even went so far as to make Duke the favorite to land him when he does pick a school.

LeBron James Jr. fueled Duke basketball speculation more this week, with one tweet.
He sent out a photo of himself wearing a Duke hoodie.

For his age, Bronny’s a pretty impressive prospect. He could certainly develop into a Duke-level player, and the possibility of LeBron playing with his son in the NBA one day has been floated.
We’re still years away from any of that though. Bronny is only 14 years old.
