LeBron James oldest son, LeBron James Jr., is only 14 years old but he is already being treated like a superstar, as evidenced by the footage that surfaced from Sierra Canyon's recent trip to China.
Bronny and his teammates, which includes Dwyane Wade's son Zaire, headed overseas to compete against select Chinese high schools in a few exhibition games before their season kicks off, and they were mobbed by a swarm of fans the second they stepped off the team bus.
As seen in the footage posted to LeBron's IG account, those fans also packed out the arena to watch Sierra Canyon do their thing.
Bronny, a Class of 2023 prospect, has reportedly already received an offer from the Kentucky Wildcats, although he'll have his pick of any of the college basketball blue bloods including the Duke Blue Devils, Kansas Jayhawks, UNC Tar Heels and UCLA Bruins. According to 247Sports, Wade (class of 2020) has received offers from Nebraska and DePaul.
In addition to Bronny and Zaire, Sierra Canyon's team includes several five-star recruits including Kentucky commit BJ Boston, Zaire Williams and class of 2022 recruit Amari Bailey.
Bronny James Jr Comes Within Inches Of Posterizing Player, LeBron Reacts
Bronny almost posterized this poor kid.
Bronny James Jr has been killing it on the court lately as he’s been showcasing his dunking ability that has people comparing him to his father. While it’s too early to attach any lofty expectations to Bronny, there is no doubt that he has the potential to be a great player and at just 14 years old, scouts are already taking notice. Bronny almost had the whole gym evacuated recently when he tried to dunk over an unsuspecting player. The ball ended up bouncing off the rim but if he had made the dunk, there’s no doubt that it would have been a phenomenal poster.
LeBron wasn’t on tap for this particular game but he eventually saw the clip and took to Instagram to shower his son with praise. As you would expect, LeBron was very excited about the potential that exuded by his own kid.
“Getting closer and closer ladies and gentlemen,” LeBron wrote. “Be aware, be very aware!! Just hope it’s not you on the other end of a poster. Coming to a city near you.”
It is believed that once Bronny becomes old enough to go to college, he will end up at Duke since Coach K has been seen at a couple of his games. With a young talent like Bronny, there are no guarantees although his future certainly looks bright.
LeBron James Praises Son Bronny Jr For His "Scary" Talents
Bronny is up next.
Over the past few months, LeBron James has been showing off the talents of his son Bronny James Jr who is currently playing high school basketball. Bronny has released his own highlight tape and has been impressing scouts on and off the court with his work ethic and athleticism. It’s clear that Bronny is a dominant force out on the court and has tremendous potential moving forward, especially with college ball on the horizon. Bronny Jr recently got his own Instagram account where he has been posting even more highlights that have made his father proud.
LeBron recently went on Instagram and posted a striking picture of Bronny looking to dunk over some unsuspecting opponents. The King’s son looks like he’s ready to decimate everybody on the court and has passion in his eyes.
High profile coaches like Duke‘s Mike Krzyzewski have been fixtures at Bronny’s games which just goes to show the kind of potential he has. Should Bronny end up going the college route, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see him in a Blue Devils jersey. Maybe one day he’ll even get to play with his dad.
