LeBron James claims his son is 'definitely better' than some of the players in the NBA
| Last updated
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.”
