This past NBA season, LeBron James surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most points scored in NBA history. It is an incredible milestone for someone who has been in the spotlight since he was a freshman in high school. Today though, we celebrate a milestone that his son has reached. Bronny James turned 19 years old today!
Similarly to his father, the young king has been in the national spotlight since he was very young. As the eldest child of LeBron James, Bronny was always expected to play basketball also. By the age of ten, he was already being featured in basketball highlight reels that drew national attention. Since then, he has continued to grow his game and stock tremendously. He finished his senior year of high school at Sierra Canyon in Los Angeles in May and is currently attending the University of Southern California. Bronny unfortunately suffered a cardiac arrest health scare in July that caused him to have surgery. At the Los Angeles Lakers media day on Monday (October 2), LeBron James told reporters that Bronny was “doing extremely well” and he expects him to be back on the court at some point this season. This is news that we can agree everyone is happy to hear!
One thing you have to love about Bronny is that no matter how big he gets or how much attention he garners, he seems to remain focused and grounded. These are obviously important characteristics that were instilled in him by his legendary father. Another value LeBron and his wife Savannah surely taught their son was the importance of family. It’s very common to see Bronny supporting his younger brother Bryce at his AAU games or posting his baby sister Zhuri being adorable, The #JamesGang is royalty. To celebrate one of the princes, we put together a gallery of some of our favorite photos of Bronny and the family. HAPPY 19TH BRONNY!
