Bronny James makes USC debut less than five months after cardiac arrest with LeBron cheering on
Less than five months after a scary cardiac-arrest episode, USC freshman Bronny James has made his anticipated NCAA hoops debut.
LeBron James’ eldest son scored four points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes off the bench in an 84-79 overtime loss Sunday to Long Beach State.
The 19-year-old Bronny James was hospitalized for three days in the summer after suffering the cardiac arrest during a preseason practice on July 24.
“I just want to say how thankful I am for everything,” Bronny James said after the game. “The Mayo Clinic, everything they helped me with. My parents, my siblings, for supporting me through this hard time in my life.
“I just want to show appreciation for everyone who’s helped me through this.”

He underwent a procedure to treat the defect and returned to basketball activity in November, USC coach Andy Enfield announced Thursday that the 6-3 guard had been medically cleared to play, adding the freshman likely would face a minutes restriction.
