Bronny James is turning into a hyped-up NBA draft prospect before our very eyes. As we all know, Bronny is the eldest son of LeBron James and is expected to start college soon. He is in his final year of high school currently attending Sierra Canyon along with his younger brother Bryce.
LeBron has undoubtedly played a huge role in the attention that his son has received. While there is no denying that his name alone opens a lot of doors, having his father promote his game actively on social media certainly helps Bronny.
All of that is well and good. However, fans are still eager to find out how good Bronny actually is at the moment. Therefore, we should take a look at how he is performing at Sierra Canyon in order to know what he is capable of doing.
Bronny James’ high school Sierra Canyon has a record of 23 wins and 10 losses
It turns out that Sierra Canyon has quite a good high school basketball team. For this season, they currently hold a record of 23 wins and 10 losses. Additionally, they are on a 3-game winning streak and were expected to play their final game of this year against Notre Dame.
This is a team that has already beaten them thrice in the past. As a result, this is a hyped-up game that will certainly push Bronny and his team to the limit. As we all know, Bronny’s team lost that game. Nonetheless, He is arguably one of the best players on the Sierra Canyon roster. Bronny has been averaging 14 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.9 assists. Moreover, he is also averaging an impressive 1.8 steals per game.
That is an incredible improvement considering that he was only averaging around 4.1 points in his first year. During his second year, he tore his meniscus and was sidelined for the majority of the season. In his third year, he averaged 8.8 points and 3.3 rebounds. Now, he has taken a major leap forward.
As far as his actual abilities on the court go, Bronny has a high basketball IQ and a good shooting stroke. These are two essential ingredients to make it in the NBA. However, he is listed at only 6ft 3in and weighs 180 lbs. When compared to his father in high school, Bronny doesn’t appear to be as gifted.
In fact, one could argue that his brother Bryce has more potential and a higher ceiling considering his height. Be that as it may, the Lakers star certainly felt Bronny is something special after sending out a tweet claiming that his son is already better than players in the NBA. Hopefully, he is able to live up to the pressure that is inevitably falling on his shoulders and managed to make it as an NBA player and prove his father right.
