Bronny James is making headlines this summer with his play on the basketball circuit.
The son of legendary NBA star LeBron James, he certainly garners the attention. Bronny is a top 50 player in the 2023 recruiting class according to most recruiting services, and he’s being courted by programs like USC, UCLA, Oregon, Michigan, and Ohio State. In fact, many believe James to be leaning towards a commitment to the Ducks, though his father would disagree.
Bronny’s abilities are evident, and a few recent clips on Twitter have those college programs salivating at the opportunity to land the budding star.
He went viral on social media with a vicious tomahawk jam that reminded many of LeBron. Now, Bronny’s doing it on the defensive end with a huge chase down block that instantly had NBA fans flashing back to the 2016 Finals.
