LeBron James shared an emotional moment with his mother, Gloria, while watching his son, Bronny, play for USC Basketball on Saturday.

The 39-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the heartfelt moment with his 52.8 million followers on the social network.

LeBron wrote, "Crazy man! My mom sitting right next to me just said 'You know how amazing this is!? Sitting here with my son while watching my grandson on TV. I feel so present and blessed.' "

The father-of-three added that the moment "almost brought me to tears just now."

Bronny, 19, scored seven points, four rebounds and five assists in USC's loss to Arizona State on Saturday.

The Trojans' record currently sits at 8 wins and 11 losses, tying UCLA's Bruins, who will travel from Westwood to Downtown LA for a battle of Los Angeles on Jan. 27. USC currently holds the 11th spot in the Pac-12 division.

Following the Lakers' 127-110 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, LeBron quickly darted through the tunnel at Crypto.com Arena and told Lauren Jones of The Sporting Tribune, "I have to go catch my son's game real quick."

Despite Bronny and USC's loss to the Arizona Wildcats in that game, Bronny posted 11 points, six assists, and a block on Wednesday.

The USC freshman missed the first eight games of the current college basketball season while he waited for doctors to clear him to play following a cardiac arrest in July.

He was later diagnosed with "an anatomically and functionally significant congenital heart defect" and underwent surgery to correct the issue.

When he made his USC debut in December, Bronny entered the matchup against Long Beach State about 13 minutes in, drawing cheers from the crowd as he made his way onto the court at the Galen Center.

A video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) by the USC men's basketball team's official account showed LeBron recording the moment from the stands on his phone.

Following his debut with the Trojans, Bronny took a moment to acknowledge the medical professionals who cared for him, as well as his coaches, teammates and his family for helping him in his journey back to the basketball court.

"I just want to give appreciation to everyone who has helped me through this," he said, according to a video shared online by NBA reporter Malika Andrews.

In addition to Bronny, LeBron shares Bryce Maximus, 16, and Zhuri Nova, 9, with his wife, Savannah James.

In October, Bronny called his dad his "favorite player of all time" when asked the question by USC Basketball for a social media video. After jokingly waiting a few beats to keep his dad — and fans — sweating, Bronny said, "I'd probably say like...LeBron James or something like that," with a smile.

Bronny's answer provoked a laugh from his teammates who can be heard in the background of the video, shared in a post on X (formerly Twitter) by USC Basketball.

One user in the replies pointed out how much the freshman's voice "sounds exactly like" his legendary father's in the video. "Bruh sounds exactly like LeBron," the reply said.

Another user wrote, "LBJ and Savannah — you are doing extremely well in the parent department," in the post's replies.
