LeBron James Jr. popularly known as Bronny is a chip off the old block on the basketball court and he has been showing his skills even at his young age. Just recently, his supportive dad, the NBA superstar LeBron James shared a photo on Instagram which revealed a letter from Nike vice president of basketball sports marketing - at least on NBA2k14.
Aug 8, 2014; Akron, OH, USA; Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James talks with the media during the LeBron James Family Foundation Reunion and Rally at InfoCision Stadium.
"It's only right @nikebasketball offer my son Bronny a deal. He's playing "My Career" on NBA2k14. Thanks Lynn Merritt!! Lol. #KeepItInTheFamily #EvenVideoGamesKnowWhatsUp #JamesGang #NikeLifer #StriveForGreatness," James posted.
In the real world, the younger LeBron actually has skills to show on the court. His NBA superstar dad proudly watched LeBron Jr. played for the Miami City Ballers, where he scored 11 points to help his team lead the Mississippi club DMG, 51-46 last month at the 4th grade AAU Tournament in Kentucky.
The budding basketball talent of LeBron James Jr., a 9-year-old dunker has been well-chronicled. In fact, his AAU Tournament game wasn't the first time Bronny flashed his skills as he has been showing his form for over half his life.
In the game, Kentucky Coach John Calipari was also spotted, probably doing his homework real early.
Meanwhile, the basketball realm has been buzzing about the sudden change in the physique of LeBron James after he opted to leave the Miami Heat for his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers recently.
Apparently, apart from his decision to leave Miami Heat, James made another big decision to cut down his carbs intake. It wasn't like the 29-year-old needed to slim down but watching his food intake is one of his attempts to refine his game as his 30th birthday nears.
Previously, James' tweaks have paid off. He was successful in improving his jump shot and three-point shooting from 36% to 41%, which benefited Miami winning back-to-back NBA titles.
