It's not a secret that Bronny James carries a lot of pressure on his shoulders every time he steps on the court. LeBron James' son is always making the headlines, he's followed by cameras and everybody is trying to get a piece of him whenever he plays.
He is expected to be as good or even better than his father. After finishing his freshman year at Sierra Canyon High School, Bronny was ranked as the 24th best player in ESPN’s top 25 for the 2023 high school hoop class. This surprised a lot of people who believe Bronny deserves a higher spot, but he still has three years to change everybody's minds.
Moreover, if we take a look at one of his former teammates, Brandon Boston, Bronny won't only surpass players of his class when he's a senior but professional ballers, too, including his father.
"By the time he's a senior, he might be the best player in the world," Boston is quoted as saying by Hoops Chemistry.
That is a bold claim. Bronny is just starting his career and not even LeBron was considered the best player in the world during his last year at St. Vincent-St. Mary. People keep putting more pressure on Bronny's shoulders, but he seems to be fine with it.
However, to be called the best player in the world while you're still in high school is a little excessive. Perhaps Boston, who played his senior year with Bronny, really liked what he saw from the player during their time together, but it's not like he will surpass players like Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum and more in three years.
