Bronny’ James ‘s Basketball Career
Bronny had previously proclaimed his intention to attend USC to play basketball before he even graduated from Sierra Canyon High School in May. When asked about the event, LeBron told Spectrum SportsNet at the time that it was “one of the best days of my life.”
“First of all, congratulations to Bronny on his decision he made. I’m super proud of him, our family is proud of him,” Lebron said. “For me personally, it’s even more special to me because it’s the first time someone out of my family to go to college. Obviously, I didn’t go to college.”
“It’s just a proud moment to see my son go to college, and he’s the first one to go college in my family. Super duper proud, super emotional, but just super duper excited and happy for his journey,” he concluded.
