Bronny James is officially done playing for his high school team Sierra Canyon and is expected to apply for college later this year. As all NBA fans would most certainly be aware, Bronny is the eldest son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and is growing into a hyped-up future NBA draft prospect right before our very eyes.

His father certainly put a fair share of pressure on his young shoulders by publicly revealing that it was his sincere desire to play with his son in the NBA before retiring. While several NBA critics and analysts have called out Bronny and claimed that he is getting attention simply due to his dad, a recent mix tape displaying his highlights with Sierra Canyon has been released to the public.

That certainly caused a fair share of reactions from fans who were not expecting it. Let us take a closer look at how fans now feel about Bronny’s potential and what his immediate future could look like.
Which college will Bronny James go to?
While someone like LeBron could argue that Bronny is already ready to take his talents to the NBA, the fact remains that he will still have to attend college for at least one year. At the moment, Ohio State University and USC are the top choices for Bronny. Both colleges have a good basketball program and would undoubtedly accommodate Bronny considering the attention that he would bring them.
Niggas can’t say he ain’t a Raw talent!
Young 👑 4sho

Putting aside the popularity that LeBron’s eldest son would bring his new college team, Bronny is also developing into an excellent player as his high school mixtape indicates. As we can see from the video, he already has tremendous vertical jump abilities and is able to throw down fancy and creative dunks in-game. He is also quite versatile and can get his shot off in a plethora of ways.
Moreover, Bronny also proved to be an incredible and willing defender. He challenges players of all sizes at the rim and fears no one. Several of his chase-down blocks and dunks remind fans of what a young LeBron James was capable of many years ago. In fact, some even think that Bronny is already comparable to his father, “This kid could actually become as good as his dad. Genes don’t lie.”

While there is no denying that Bronny has LeBron’s genes, he does not possess the King’s height and is yet to grow into his adult frame completely. This is the biggest point that critics have held against him. Hopefully, he is able to prove them wrong in the years to come.
