Following in the steps of his father, Bronny James isn't going to let anything get in the way of a successful NBA career. As a senior in high school, this is the year that all eyes will be on Bronny as he prepares to make the leap to the collegiate level.
The pathway to access is long, tiresome, and filled with countless obstacles/challenges. So, amid all of that, it's a good thing that the young baller is getting some advice from, arguably, the greatest player ever.
On Twitter this week, LeBron James posted a message for his son, encouraging him to keep working and striving for perfection.
Young King!!! It's all about the process. Put the work in and you'll see the results. Then put more work in!
As a 19-year veteran in the league, LeBron knows more than anyone about what it takes to succeed at the highest level of the game. While he has plenty of natural talent and advantages, it's really his hard work that has helped LeBron be so good for so long.
Bronny James Could Fall As Low As The Second Round In 2024 Draft
As for the 'young king,' his book is still being written. After being raised by a basketball legend, he has the talent and knowledge to become a true star -- and it will almost surely get him, even if it's past the lottery. According to an earlier report, Bronny is projected to be a late first-round pick.
“By all accounts, everybody that I’ve talked to around the NBA that does this for a living, that scouts this, they talk about Bronny as late first-round pick, early second-round pick type of player. Now that could change. He could have a great season this year in high school, and then he could go somewhere to college and have a great freshman season and then the status quo changes.”
“He’s solid as hell,” said Thaddeus Young, who just finished his 15th NBA season and sponsored a team that played Strive for Greatness, an assessment that was largely echoed by college coaches and NBA scouts. “Obviously, probably not the elite of the elite. But he’s athletic, he’s strong, he plays defense, he can shoot the ball well, he can run the point guard position, he can play off ball.”
No matter where Bronny lands, he's going to have to work hard if he wants to prosper in the NBA. He's not going to get any free handouts, especially from his dad.
What he will get (and does get) is expert-level advice and insight from one of the league's All-Time greats. If that doesn't help Bronny improve his game, then maybe nothing will.
