LeBron James Jr. or otherwise known as Bronny James is now a 5-Star recruit according to On3. Bronny’s valuation so far has been out of the top 20 but is now a top 10 prospect in 2023. There are questions raised for such a high valuation, either being on merit or a case of nepotism. Nonetheless, his continued progress is so far so good, but fans are in utter disbelief. Some are questioning if King James played a part in this.
Bronny’s status as a 5-star recruit comes after King James posted a tweet on his official Twitter account. “Man Bronny definitely better than some of these cats I’ve been watching on league pass today. Shit lightweight hilarious.” Said LeBron. James ended up saying that Bronny is better than the numerous young players he sees on NBA League Pass. It sure looks like James has a hand in inflating Bronny’s status, as he is about to finish his high school career.
