The outpouring of affection and love sent from all over the NBA to Bronny James following his cardiac arrest is very heartwarming as well as not surprising.
Even though everyone in the league fiercely competes, they all care greatly for one another too.
On Tuesday morning, countless players, coaches, analysts, and athletes from all over expressed their heartfelt wishes to James.
Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum was one of many.
He tweeted James’ name as well as a series of praying hands emojis.
It was a brief tweet, but it said it all.

James is just 18 years old and the chances of him making a full recovery are likely high, which is great news.
Sadly, he isn’t the first young athlete to experience such a scary medical emergency.
In fact, this is the second straight year that USC has had a student-athlete suffer a cardiac arrest.
Vincent Iwuchukwu, an incoming center, had a cardiac arrest last summer.
He was then hospitalized for a few days and started playing for USC in January and appeared in 14 games, according to ESPN.
That is promising news for James, who has been hoping to have a huge impact on his Trojans during his freshman year.
Tatum and other athletes already know James quite well, because of their relationships with his father.
They have watched him grow up and are now just a season away from possibly playing alongside – and against – him.
The care that Tatum and other NBA stars have for James is sincere and heartfelt because they have grown close to him and his family over the years.
These aren’t future competitors reaching out to him.
Instead, they are family.
