LeBron James claims his son is 'definitely better' than some of the players in the NBA

LeBron James has made the sensational claim that his son is ‘definitely better’ than some of the NBA’s stars.

LeBron certainly thinks a lot of his son’s ability - or, he clearly isn’t impressed with the quality in the NBA.

The basketball legend has been on the sidelines recently with a foot injury and it looks like it’s given him plenty of time to watch some ball.

And he doesn’t seem too inspired by the quality of the league.


He tweeted: “Man Bronny definitely better than some of these cats I've been watching on league pass today. S**t lightweight hilarious.”

Of course, the king didn’t name any names but there were a slew of fixtures on the Monday (March 6), including 76ers-Pacers, Celtics-Cavaliers, Trail Blazers-Pistons and Raptors-Nuggets.

LeBron’s son Bronny is currently in his senior year playing for Sierra Canyon High School, becoming draft-eligible in 2024.


The 18-year-old is a hot prospect and was rated No. 28 in the ESPN 100 for the 2023 senior class.

His legendary father admitted that his son was still in the ‘decision-making process’ of what College team he’ll play for.

In January, he said: “I think Bronny can go to any college he wants to. All I have to do is pick up the phone. If Bronny says he wants to go there, he’s good enough.”

FoxSports reports that he has offers from a number of schools such as Memphis, Ohio State, USC, Kentucky, Oregon, and Michigan.


It was also reported that James and his eldest son were choosing between a season in college, the G League ignite, or potentially a season in Australia’s NBL.

An exciting prospect for Australian fans to see the 6’3 point guard in action, and get a taste of what is to come from the son of one of the greatest of all time.

It could all be part of a master plan from LeBron who has made it clear that he wants to play a season with his son before heading off into the basketball sunset.


LeBron made the admission to The Athletic earlier this year, saying: “My last year will be played with my son.

“Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.”
