Doug Gottlieb: "If LeBron is not in the league with the desire to play with his son, Bronny James is not a one-and-done. Absolutely not a one-and-done at this stage. He's not a top-10 prospect in the NBA Draft. He's not a top-10 incoming freshman. He's not even the best freshman going to USC. And, traditionally, especially recently, it's really hard to win with young players."

Doug Gottlieb believes the possibility of LeBron James retiring this offseason is more likely than you may think. Doug breaks down why LeBron's son Bronny, who recently committed to USC, holds the key to what LeBron's next steps are. Doug explains how Bronny's current ability and projections do not call for him to be a one-and-done in college, meaning that LeBron's goal to play alongside his son may have to wait a few years, giving him rational reason to consider retirement right now.
