The hype surrounding a 17-year-old LeBron James was unprecedented in 2003. The high-schooler was dubbed the “Chosen One” by Sports Illustrated Magazine. NBA entrusted LeBron James with the responsibility of ushering in a new era after Michael Jordan’s retirement, and it would be an understatement to assert that LeBron has exceeded those expectations. His on-court brilliance and squeaky-clean public image have made him a global icon.

A video surfaced of Bryce James on X (formerly Twitter) which has made waves online. His elite genetics and athleticism were on full display, as Bryce proved instrumental in Sierra Canyon’s 46-point victory over the Burroughs. Even LeBron James commented on the video through his official X account. He wrote, “Yessir!! He just working and striving for greatness!” 

Bryce didn’t start the season with Sierra Canyon. He enrolled in Sherman Oaks Notre Dame’s basketball program. However, in late November, it was reported that Bryce James returned to Sierra Canyon following a short stint at Notre Dame. Bryce has been a part of the Sierra Canyon basketball team since the seventh grade. Last year, he played alongside his older brother, Bronny, when he was a sophomore. However, Bryce had limited playing time as a starter during that season. Apart from Bryce, Scottie Pippen’s youngest son, Justin Pippen, also plays for Sierra Canyon.

Sierra Canyon has had an impressive varsity season, losing only once in 12 games to the Desert Mountains, with a final score of 81-74. With Bryce showing flashes of brilliance, is he good enough to make it to the NBA, or is it too premature to think about his NBA prospects?

LeBron James will go down in history as one of the greatest players to ever set foot on an NBA court. In a career spanning 21 seasons, King James has won everything there is to win in basketball. However, his one dream remains unfulfilled. LeBron has dreamt of sharing an NBA court with his sons.

In an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, LeBron said, “I need to be on the floor with my boy, I got to be on the floor with Bronny. …either in the same uniform or a matchup against him. But I would love to do the whole Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr. thing. That would be ideal for sure.”
