LeBron James Jr., a.k.a. ‘Bronny’ is only a high school freshman, but that hasn’t stopped people to start comparing him with his father. Despite his young age, he’s already expected to be great once he makes it to the NBA equaling or surpassing the things his father has done so far.

ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz joined Rachel Nichols and Chiney Ogwumike on ‘The Jump’ to talk about several father-son duos in the association, including Bron and Bronny’s. Arnovitz emphasized how Bronny must be feeling right now with all the expectations around him, especially with the extraordinary career his father has had.

“This is the first time I remember the progeny of a truly generation of superstar. LeBron’s first public comment was ‘Hey, I’m on this way around for my son to make it to the NBA’, so perhaps they can play against each other or together, and I just cannot imagine the level of pressure that Bronny is under. And the fact that he’s well adjusted in that celebrity culture, all that social media and who LeBron is culturally, is pretty outstanding.”

Bronny is showing very good things at his young age, and different than the majority of father-son duos, the James family could actually be the biggest force in the league for yet another 20 years.

Still, it’s a little early to make those claims, but you can’t deny the future looks bright for LeBron and his son.
