“It’s probably the best part of his game and I grew up playing basketball, playing AAU ball and watched a lot of kids kind of hog the ball,” James told reporters (via Cleveland.com). “Not pass the ball and things of that nature, and I was never one of those kids. I always liked seeing my teammates excited about getting the ball and making a shot, so to see him doing the same thing, it’s a pretty unique trait for a kid his age.”
Bronny shoots the ball better, his father said — not sounding at all threatened by the rising competition.
“He handles the ball exceptionally and he shoots it a lot better than I did at that age, but I’ve always had the ability to pass the ball. It’s good to see him doing it as well.”
Bronny’s latest highlight reel came over the weekend in Houston at John Lucas All-Star Weekend, a national two-day basketball tournament for kids in second to eighth grades. He wears 0 in honor of his favorite basketball player … Russell Westbrook.
