As the NBA Finals get ready to jump off this evening, LeBron James will look to follow in his son’s footsteps. We know that sounds a little bit backwards, but if it’s any indication of what may happen over the next two weeks, the James family seems to have championships coming to them in the month of June.
At The League‘s latest stop in Dallas, it was LeBron James Jr. who paced his Gulf Coast Blue Chips squad to the 11U ‘chip. The final stop of The League’s regular season, word traveled fast at the Hype Sports Summer Jam and fans completely filled out the bleachers to get a glimpse of young Bronny. Owning the ridiculous court vision of his Pops, he routinely threw one hand bullets off the dribble and no-looks for exciting assists. He made some deep three pointers, saw over the top of the D, and used his athleticism to create countless turnovers in the Blue Chips’ deadly press. However, he wasn’t doing this alone.
Like LeBron Sr.’s Miami Heat championship teams, this wasn’t just a one man show. People familiar with the middle school basketball scene tell SLAMonline that Khoi Thurmon, Paul Dual, Wesley Yates III, and Zyon Little all made major contributions during the title run. In fact, head coach Alex Franklin went 11 deep with every guy playing substantial minutes on the weekend. Still, it was 10-year-old Bronny who stole the show by adding another title to the James family mantle.
