LeBron James’ eldest son, Bronny James, starred a very unique incident that made its rounds on the Internet on Monday. Bronny was thrown an orange at him by a fan during the 2020 Hoophall Classic. This was seen as a very low move by plenty of fans, but now we have learned that it wasn’t with bad intentions at all.

The responsible for this action was a very young boy, but trying to explain everything, the boy himself posted a video on YouTube to apologize to Bronny and the rest of the James family:

“Hi James family, I just want to apologize that I threw an orange peel at Bronny,” he said in a video posted on Monday night. (h/t to Tom Westerholm of MassLive)

The kid didn’t do what he did to mock Bronny, but to get his attention and praise him instead.

“I didn’t want to hurt anyone, I was actually there at Springfield College during Hoophall I’m not lying or trying to get clout. I was in the front area seats the people around me were not my parents were sitting a couple seats away because I wanted to sit closer. I was calling out Bronny’s name and just wanted him to see me.”

Still, this is not the way you should get the attention of your favorite players. This is just a kid and we hope he learned his lesson.
