Claim : Bronny James Almost Died From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!
Right after news broke that Bronny James collapsed from a cardiac arrest during basketball practice with his team, some people immediately claimed or suggested that LeBron James’ older son was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, or that his cardiac arrest was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
Elon Musk : We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing.
Myocarditis is a known side-effect. The only question is whether it is rare or common.
William Makis MD : CARDIAC ARREST in the young – Lebron James’ 18 year old son Bronny James had a cardiac arrest during practice at 9:30am on July 24, 2023 – he was fully COVID-19 vaccinated
Some young people survive vaccine injury – 13 cases that did!
OutKick : Elon Musk is right to ask and wonder if the Covid vaccine contributed to Bronny James’ cardiac arrest.
We need to know why this keeps happening to young healthy adults.

No Evidence Bronny James Almost Died From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!
It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…
Fact #1 : Bronny James Suffered Cardiac Arrest During Practice
Born LeBron Raymone James Jr. on October 6, 2004, Bronny James is the eldest son of NBA superstar, LeBron James, and a basketball player for the University of Southern California (USC) Trojans team.
At approximately 9:26 AM PDT on Monday, July 24, 2023, Bronny James collapsed while practicing with his team at the USC Galen Center. He was rushed by ambulance to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and confirmed to have suffered from a cardiac arrest.
By the time news broke on Tuesday, July 25, Bronny James was in stable condition, and had already been released from intensive care. A spokesperson for his family said:
Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU.
We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information. LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.
Prayers to Bronny & The James family as well. 🙏🏽 here for you guys just like you have been for me my entire process.

Fact #2 : Bronny James Has Congenital Heart Defect
On Friday, August 25, 2023, the James family announced in a statement, that Bronny James was found to have a congenital heart defect that likely caused his sudden cardiac arrest on the basketball court:
After a comprehensive initial evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center led by Dr. Merije Chukumerije and follow-up evaluations at the Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Michael J. Ackerman and Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center led by Dr. Matthew W. Martinez, the probable cause of Mr. James’ sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has been identified.
It is an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect which can and will be treated.
We are very confident in Bronny’s full recovery and return to basketball in the very near future. We will continue to provide updates to media and respectfully reiterate the family’s request for privacy.
The statement did not mention the type of congenital heart defect Bronny James has, but heart defects can definitely cause sudden cardiac arrest, especially during strenuous exercise or activity.
But to be clear – Bronny James was born with the heart defect (that’s what congenital means). He did not develop it from getting the COVID-19 vaccines.
Fact #2 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes
Anti-vaccination activists often claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.
The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.
The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.
And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.
Fact #3 : No Evidence Bronny James Had Myocarditis
According to CNN, Bronny James underwent cardiac screening several months earlier, as part of testing for prospective NBA players.
The screening included a transthroracic echocardiogram, which looks at blood flow through the heart and its valves, and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG), which shows the heart’s electrical activity.
Both heart screenings came back with normal results. This rules out the possibility that Bronny James was suffering from myocarditis, as Elon Musk and other people have suggested.
In fact, it would be quite impossible for Bronny James to practice with his team if he was suffering from myocarditis, as he would be experiencing chest pain, fatigue, and breathing difficulties, another other symptoms.
Needless to say, neither Elon Musk nor the other people who suggested or hinted that Bronny James was suffering from myocarditis actually provided any evidence…
Just in case you are wondering – the ECG / EKG only captures a snapshot of his heart’s electrical activity at that point in time. Bronny James will need to undergo longer monitoring, even a stress EKG, to see if there is any abnormal electrical activity, especially during more strenuous activity.
Fact #4 : Risk Of Myocarditis Much Higher With COVID-19 Infection
According to the large SAFECOVAC study conducted in Malaysia, there is less than one in a million risk of getting myocarditis from COVID-19 vaccines!
In fact, if you take the SAFECOVAC data, and extrapolate the risk of myocarditis from people who were vaccinated three times (including booster dose) versus a COVID-19 infection, you will see this:
Look at the results! If you are worried about myocarditis, you should definitely want to AVOID getting infected with COVID-19.
No matter how you slice and dice the results, it is very clear that the risk of myocarditis is GREATEST with a single COVID-19 infection, than it is with THREE doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccines.
Fact #5 : Unknown If Bronny James Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
Bronny James has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.
In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.
I can only confirm that his father, LeBron James, was fully-vaccinated as he revealed in September 2021:
I know that for me I can speak about myself. I think everyone has their own choice to do what they feel is right for themselves and their family, and things of that nature.
I know that I was very [skeptical] about it all, but after doing my research, and things of that nature, I felt like it was best suited for not only me but for my family and for my friends, and that’s why I decided to do it.
While that may suggest that his entire family was similarly vaccinated against COVID-19, he did not explicitly say so.
Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Bronny James was fully-vaccinated, he would have received his vaccine doses more than a year ago!
He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
