Editor’s note: This is the Saturday, Dec. 14 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here.MIAMI — Let’s briefly gloss over that it’s 77 degrees in Miami Beach today and look back about a week-and-a-half in a much colder climate.The scene is in the Pepsi Center in Denver, and the Lakers are celebrating a tough road win over the Nuggets. As guard Danny Green attempts to field a question, shouting from the other end of the locker room interrupts him.A herd of reporters twists their heads to spot LeBron James, sitting in front of his locker watching his phone while excitedly pumping his fist in the air. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error As many NBA families know, the cruelty of the league is that it takes you away from home, often for extended stretches. Players, coaches, media, support staff and many others travel so much, it’s weaved into their rhythms of life, but it takes away time from relationships and hands-on parenting.More than ever, LeBron, a father of three, is feeling that sting.“If you ask me what’s been the only sucky thing about this season so far is that my son has played like six games into his freshman year and I haven’t seen one,” the four-time NBA MVP said Friday night. “I love what I do. I don’t take this for granted. This is a dream come true. But missing my son, you know Bron Jr., missing Bryce’s first game the other day when we left for Orlando, his first game of the season. Missing my daughter at gymnastics and things of that nature. And I understand the business, but it sucks.”James is fortunate to have the resources to track his son, and all indications are that he is a devoted follower of Bronny’s basketball exploits. An ESPN piece earlier this week detailed just how much control LeBron has over Bronny’s career, including hand-picking documentary and film crews. While the Lakers come first, tracking Sierra Canyon has arguably become his defining interest outside of his job.It’s fun to note that for this game on Saturday night, he’ll have intel from both sides: LeBron and St. Vincent-St. Mary athletic director Willie McGee, old high school teammates, will catch up for dinner before the game tips off at 5:30 p.m. PT.There’s a persistent rumor, sparked by a comment James once made himself rather audaciously, that he wants to keep playing in the NBA until Bronny is old enough to enter the draft. There are many bold assumptions involved in that premise, chiefly that Bronny is good enough to play in the NBA (he’s currently a role player on a star-studded team) and that LeBron is looking forward to playing pro basketball on the cusp of 40.Even LeBron, who likes to step into bold statements now and then, peeled back a little when asked about that Friday night.“My son is in the ninth grade and he’s a kid and we’re not even thinking about nothing besides how he can be a great teammate,” he said. “How he can be a great son. How he can be a great brother to his sister and little brother. His little brother and little sister. And how he can continue to be a great kid. So we’re not even thinking about that, and he’s not thinking about that.”One wonders what LeBron might think about tonight, as he watches Bronny for the first time live on the national high school stage. Maybe there will be a stray hope or two that it might happen one day.— Kyle GoonLinking to the finishSweet Heat – Miami makes you bleed, but the Lakers became the first team to win there this season.Who is laughing now? – Maybe he never had dinner with Heath Ledger, but the Lakers GM isn’t a league laughingstock right now, Mark Heisler writes.AD for three – Frank Vogel and company want the Brow to hoist up the deep shots.Finding some peace – Dwight Howard is ready to mend fences with Orlando, as long as the Magic are interested.Dudz, the Muscle – After showing Jared Dudley’s softer side, we learned he has an edgy side as well.Winning ugly – The victory in Orlando wasn’t one to write home about.Just like his dad – Tarek Fattal talked to LeBron’s high school coach to scout up Bronny, who has some similar instincts.

After their 23-3 start, the next hot conversation is all about another L.A. team: Sierra Canyon High School. The Lakers’ biggest star is also Sierra Canyon’s No. 1 fan.“He loves it,” forward Anthony Davis said. “Anytime we get a chance to watch a game, whether it’s on a plane or on a bus, he on his iPad or his phone making sure he’s watching his son play. It’s always a great time for him.”James is so excited about seeing his son play, he’s leaving the warmth of Miami early on Saturday for a quick trip to Columbus, Ohio, just to watch Sierra Canyon play St. Vincent-St. Mary which just happens to be his alma mater.It’s going to be a zoo: L.A. Daily News reporter Tarek Fattal reports from Columbus that Nationwide Arena – where the game was moved to accommodate the massive interest – is expecting at least 11,000 fans tonight and almost 300 credentialed media members. While James has expressed that he doesn’t want his son to do interviews as a high school freshman, there’s little doubt that Bronny has already started feeling the media saturation his father inspired as a high school star.
