LeBron James was bragging on his son’s b-ball skills on the court and his son LeBron “Bronny” James Jr made an impressive slam dunk that inspired the proud dad to cheer loudly from the sidelines.
On Saturday, James was his 14-year-old son’s biggest cheerleader as he watched him do a slam dunk during a Laker’s pregame segment at the Staples Center. Lil Bronny had to show em’ what they were working with when he dribbled down the court and with one-hand slam dunked the ball in the hoop like it was business as usual.
James proudly tweeted “Lite bounce in [jeans emoji] though! #JamesGang,” he said along with showing off Bronny’s skills in a video before the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz game on November 23.
“Hey, let’s go!” James shouts, coaching from the sidelines.
No pressure, for the kid, right?
James loves his boys and even admitted earlier this year that he allows them to drink wine, leaving many scratching their heads at the sports legend’s confession.
“I got very mature 14- and 11-year-olds,” the Los Angeles Lakers star said to reporters about LeBron James Jr. and Bryce. “My 14- and 11-year-olds drink wine.”
“Really?” a reporter said.
“That’s how mature they are.”
“They’ll be driving next week too,” he joked.
“Everything that they (his teammates) listen to these days, my 14-year-old and my 11-year-old, they watch, too,” James told USA Today’s Josh Peter.
When asked about their preference for red or white wine, “Whatever dad or mom is having.”
And likely knowing that he might receive backlash for revealing this information, he said:
“Put it on me, though, don’t put it on mom,” he added. “Put it on dad, put it on dad.”
According to several reports, his son, LeBron James, Jr. (Bronny) is following in his famous father’s footsteps by standing out from the crowd as a basketball phenom at only 13 years-old. The teenager is heading to the prestigious Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, a breeding ground for major talents.
