Bryce James, the younger son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, made a lasting impression in his Border League debut against some of the most talented basketball players in the country. The 16-year-old point player, who recently transferred from Sierra Canyon to Campbell Hall, impressed both his father and the crowd with his performance on the court.
Bryce also participated in the Big Time Hoops League with the Drifty Elite team. He made some fancy maneuvers, including a vicious fake that left his defender in the dust before he nailed a difficult shot in his face, and he scored from all angles.

The James family as a whole enjoyed a special weekend, not just Bryce James. After being released from the hospital, Bronny James, Bryce’s older brother, who is recovering from a cardiac arrest he experienced during a USC practice, posted a message of support for Bryce on Instagram.
It’s not easy being the son of the most famous NBA player. It’s a privilege that carries a balanced number of benefits and drawbacks. While it may be tempting to concentrate on the positives, the drawbacks include ongoing media and fan scrutiny and frequently critical judgment. The said mixed bag was blatantly displayed in the highlight reel comments area of Bryce’s most recent video.
Bryce James shines in the Border League
Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas served as the venue for the most recent Border League event. It gathered talents from all over the country, including Bryce James.
After the tournament, a number of Bryce’s plays appeared on social media, providing a tantalizing peek into his ascension through the basketball hierarchy. The video demonstrates Bryce’s skill at making contested layups, dishing out deft passes, draining threes, and leaping with ease.
Bryce is well aware of the negative comments that go along with his burgeoning stardom. He has so far shown a gradual development in his game understanding. Furthermore, Bryce will unavoidably disprove his critics in the future with LeBron James by his side.
Bryce announced his registration at Notre Dame High School, signaling his departure from Sierra Canyon High School, after a period of uncertainty regarding his academic route. Furthermore, Bryce appears to be preparing for his junior season at the age of 16.
It is a turning point in his career because he will now take part in more camps and training sessions than previously. Additionally, he will garner even more interest from NBA and college scouts.
