Like any good father out there, Lebron James has promised that no matter what, he is not going to miss his son’s first college basketball game, even if it means missing one of his own Laker games.

After the Lakers’ 133-110 loss Thursday to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the NBA superstar revealed his oldest son was cleared to keep playing basketball after sustaining a cardiac arrest in July. LeBron has no intention of missing his son’s first game back, the basketball player told journalists. If he has to miss a game for the Lakers, so be it.

“Looking forward to his first game,” James told reporters.  “Whenever he’s cleared and whenever he’s ready to have his first game, I already told my teammates that if they play on the same day we’re playing, then I’m going to have to catch them the next game.”

While there is a chance Lebron will not have to miss any Lakers games, the sentiment alone is worth highlighting. (RELATED: 911 Audio Reveals Moments After Bronny James’ Cardiac Arrest)

Lebron James and the Lakers currently sit in 7th place in the Western Conference with an 11-9 record.

USC’s next game is on Friday against Gonzaga.
