LeBron James believes his son Broni is better than some current NBA players after witnessing performances he describes as “lightweight” across the NBA. “Man Bruni is definitely better than some of these cats I’ve been watching in the league today,” the NBA’s all-time leading scorer tweeted after taking to social media to express his amazement. “S*** lightweight is hilarious.”
The Lakers star has announced his intention to extend his career in an effort to play alongside his 18-year-old son. Luckily for James, he won’t have to hold out much longer because Bruni will be eligible for the 2024 NBA draft cycle which is expected to be a bunch full of prospects.
It couldn’t be easy for Bruni to follow in the footsteps of his father, one of the best players in the history of the sport. However, being a child of LeBron James has great perks, which is the ability to learn from such a great athlete and to use the resources and connections available to the James family. This was fully demonstrated by Brunney’s choice of high school, Sierra Canyon, which was full of high prospects in that age group. Now, at 18, the youngster is on the cusp of memorably joining his old man in the NBA.
At 6′ 4, Bronny is somehow shorter than his star father and less popular with recruits, currently ranked 28th on ESPN 100 – a list of the best high school recruits. There are signs of encouragement, however, as the guard has risen dramatically in the eyes of talent scouts with improved performance on the field.
Bronny will finally get a chance to distinguish himself from his father’s illustrious career when he plays collegiate basketball this fall. LeBron went straight from high school into the NBA in 2003, but the NBA has since instituted a rule that requires players to remove one year from their high school graduation before they are eligible for the draft.
The Star is currently only two wins away from the state championship which is sure to see his stock go up. Although the possibility of him being picked in the lottery in 2024 is still a long way off, it’s increasingly likely that Bronny James will team up with his old man in the NBA.
