LeBron James’ elder son, Bronny, had all eyes on him last night. The 6’3 guard finally made his debut with the USC Trojans. Unfortunately, Bronny and the Trojans could not seal the deal as they perished against Long Beach State with an 84-79 final score. The guard did all he could with his restricted minutes, including a chase-down block reminiscent of the one his father executed on Andre Iguodala in the 2016 finals. However, the game ended in an overtime loss, ensuring a heartbreaking debut for Bronny.

Bronny James may not have had success in his first game with the USC Trojans. But there are plenty of games where the elder son of The King can go off and showcase his talent to the fullest. Despite Bronny losing to the Long Beach State in overtime with his father in attendance, James made sure to shower his younger prodigy too. Bryce James had recently transferred back to Sierra Canyon from Notre Dame.

James went on to his official Instagram account to share a video uploaded of Bryce, showcasing his highlights. A proud father, LBJ eulogized his son with two words as a caption, “The Assassin.” Bryce James had initially left Sierra Canyon to go play at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame.
