LeBron James has been in the league for 19 years of his life. Through it all, he has had many memorable moments. Coming back form 3-1 in the finals, multiple game winners and many more. However, one thing that remains iconic for the ‘King’ are his chase down blocks. Now, it seems like it just runs in the family as Bronny shows off the skill for Sierra Canyon.

LeBron James is one of the most versatile players to play the game. Due to his size and athletic ability, he is able to guard all five positions. However, his ability to block shots stands out and the main reason is his iconic chase down blocks. Notably, it became famous after his Game 7 block on Andre Iguodala in the 2016 NBA finals.

While playing for Sierra Canyon, Bronny came up the floor dribbling. However, he got stripped and the player was through for an easy dunk. But Bronny did not give up on the play and hunted him down to get the chase down block. His play further led to Sierra Canyon getting a dunk on the other end.

With LeBron as his father, it isn’t surprising to see Bronny be athletic. At just 17 years, he stands at 6’4″ and excels in basketball as well. Currently in his Junior year at Sierra Canyon High School, Bronny is already making a good name for himself.

While his game may be looking like LeBron, he has done a lot to get away from the name. The main reason being that he doesn’t want the influence, and even changed his name up. Moreover, LeBron James himself said that he regrets initially naming his son LeBron James Jr. due to the pressure that comes with it.
