“King” James was obviously elated with his son and leaves no stone unturned to praise his children publically. He wrote a comment under his son’s post stating, “Facts!!! Different 👽”. There was also an unexpected reaction from Mearah O’Neal, Shaquille O’Neal’s 16 year old daughter. She wrote, ” H E E M ❤️” under his post. Both were left in awe of Bryce’s dunking abilities.

Bryce, like his brother Bronny, attended Sierra Canyon High School. His videos and pictures have reminded everyone of how LeBron James played at 14 years of age in Akron, Ohio. The kid might just be a reflection of his father.

Meanwhile, at age 14, he is already taller than Bronny. Bronny stands at 1.88 metres, hence Bryce can turn out to be a better prospect. The older brother is eligible to be drafted in 2024 and LeBron has already stated that he wouldn’t retire without playing once with Bronny.

LeBron James, of course, is coming off a disappointing season with the Los Angeles Lakers. His team ended up at 11th, which meant that they neither they qualified for the play in the tournament nor the playoffs. James still had an outstanding individual season averaging over 30 points in the 19th season of his career. He was not eligible for winning the scoring championship because he played just 56 games this season.

James, of course, is going to be a free agent in 2024. Hence, it will be a sight to see where the father- son duo end up during that year.
