NBA has some of the dominant families in the sport. Many top players’ children have inherited the game from them and have plied their trade in professional basketball. However, being the son of a former NBA star comes with a lot of pressure. But some players have carried on the legacy built by their fathers. Steph Curry, Seth Curry, Austin Rivers, Luke Walton, and Klay Thompson are some of the second-generation NBA players. Bronny has played high school basketball and will play college basketball soon. He has some big shoes to fill in.

Bronny James used to play football, basketball, and soccer during his childhood. However, LeBron didn’t allow his kids to play football.

Bronny picked up basketball and plays as a point guard or shooting guard in high school. He guided his former school Old Trail School to an Independent School League competition win as a 13-year-old. In 2018, Bronny played for the North Coast Blue Chips in the Junior NBA Midwest Championships and helped them reach the quarter-finals of the competition.
