For several months, the rating of Bronny James in the eyes of the scouts is in fall free, the fault of disappointing performances and the emergence of other young talents. But this summer the eldest of the King finds colors, the proof, he has just released the best game of his career.
Bronny James doesn’t necessarily have much to do with it, his only fault being being born with that surname, but he’s the most watched high school student on the planet. Indeed, the King’s son is expected as the worthy heir to the throne, and many people fantasize about a meeting at the highest level between the two Jameses, something that LeBron has been openly dreaming for several months.
The problem is that the expectations around the eldest may be way too high compared to his actual talent. Bronny is obviously an excellent basketball player, but he has never been in the number 1 role at Sierra Canyon, and he is rated “only” 4 stars by all the specialized sites, which gives him the status of big NCAA prospect, but not that of future NBA star. In fact, it’s only falling in the Draft predictions…
Bronny James releases his best game of his career!
If he does not know what his future will be made of, LeBron Jr. continues to work and have fun with his friends on the AAU circuit, which he dominates with his father’s team “Strive For Greatness”. Moreover, this Monday, the “Young King” may have released the most successful match of his career. Much more aggressive offensively, still just as comfortable defensively, he was excellent on all fronts.

Invited to participate in the Elite Youth Basketball tournament organized by Nike, the most prestigious in all of the United States, Bronny James seriously distinguished himself with a game with 28 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds, all before the eyes of many scouts. He took the opportunity to show the extent of his offensive palette with 5 long distance shots and several interesting penetrations. He drew praise from netizens:
He has gotten better year after year

He has improved year after year.
Bronny James was inspired to pull off the best performance of his career at a Nike EYBL match, since that’s where all the best players and many scouts meet. He was able to carry his team against great competition, enough to score points and go up the slope in the Draft forecasts.
