While LeBron James Sr. was bringing out the broom in the D to sweep the Pistons, his son was holding it down in their hometown. At the annual King James Shooting Stars Classic, the namesake’s son lived up to the family reputation and more, as you can see in the video above.
Running with the North Coast Blue Chips, the fifth-grader showed once again that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He was a simply dynamic playmaker, throwing no-look passes on the regular and pinpoint passes in transition. It was easy to tell that he was a cut above the other players his age, as James had some ridiculous finishes at the rack and sent a few shots packing into the stands. Add in the fact that he was bombing a ton of three-pointers and you see why the Blue Chips had a super hyped atmosphere at every one of their games throughout the weekend.
Bronny’s team was ultimately bounced in the semi-finals. His Dad is hoping that the Cavs don’t have that same result.
