Bronny James, the son of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, had a very nice senior season at Sierra Canyon School in the San Fernando Valley, and fans are waiting for him to decide whether he will play college ball and, if so, where.
In the meantime, he had the opportunity to showcase his skills in Tuesday’s McDonald’s All-American Game, which was held at Houston’s Toyota Center.
Although the younger James wasn’t the best player on the floor, he did well in his own right, scoring 15 points and shooting 5-of-8 from the field. All five of his made field goals were 3-point shots.
However, his West team could not come out with a victory; it lost, 109-106, to the East team.
The elder James was on hand to watch his son do his thing, and when the younger James scored his first basket of the game, the four-time MVP showed his support.

Several months ago, many scouts were unsure about his prospects in the NBA. However, more recently, his stock has been rising, so much so that an ESPN mock draft had him going No. 10 in the 2024 NBA draft.
A very strong season of college ball in the fall and winter could make him an even hotter prospect.
