LeBron James Gave Gift Bags To Players From His Old High School After Game With Bronny James And Sierra Canyon

LeBron James Says He Was Motivated To Get Triple-Double After Watching His Son Bronny: "He Inspires Me"

LeBron James certainly has had an eventful period in his career. Last week, he had to enter health and safety protocols after testing positive for COVID-19, forcing him to miss the game against the Sacramento Kings. But that absence didn’t last long, as it turned out to be a false positive, allowing him to return against the Clippers.

The Lakers lost at the Staples Center to the LA Clippers, once again losing an opportunity to build momentum on a rare two-game winning streak. James has expressed his frustration with the COVID-19 false positive handling, as it was an avoidable mistake on the part of the NBA's administration.

But things took a turn for the better the next night at the Staples Center, where James was sitting on the sidelines watching his son Bronny and Sierra Canyon defeat his old high school St. Vincent-St. Mary’s High School. It was a huge night for Bronny James, as he lit up the Staples Center, where his father's team play.

While he was rooting for Sierra Canyon and Bronny, LeBron looked out for his old high school, even providing them with gift bags after the game for making the trip from Akron to Los Angeles to play at the Staples Center. 

Clearly, LBJ still feels a lot of love for his old high school and wanted to reward the players playing there right now. After all, he grew into a big star there and even got the national spotlight on the high school thanks to his standout talent as a high-schooler. 

Bronny put on a show against his father’s old high school, having a tremendous night. And some of the NBA’s biggest stars and LeBron’s closest friends like Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul were in attendance to watch Bronny take over against St. Vincent-St. Mary and showing the world why he can be a big star in basketball.
