LeBron James is experiencing a very special moment in parenting.

After the Los Angeles Lakers Game 3 NBA Playoff win on Sunday, the four-time NBA Champion, 38, spoke about the day’s earlier basketball news — that oldest son Bronny James, 18, committed to the University of Southern California (USC) for basketball.

Speaking with Spectrum SportsNet, the father of three was beaming with pride, calling the occasion of the announcement “one of the best days of my life.”

“First of all, congratulations to Bronny on his decision he made. I’m super proud of him, our family is proud of him,” James said. “For me personally, it’s even more special to me because it’s the first time someone out of my family to go to college. Obviously, I didn’t go to college.”
