Mars Reel with the CRISPY FOOTAGE: usworlds.info
Bronny stands at 6’ 2”, 176 pounds and he’s a point guard, a primary ball handler for Sierra Canyon. That has somehow become a negative narrative when compared LeBron who was 6’ 6”, 200 pounds as a sophomore. And that’s going to be a recurring theme, specifically Bronny’s athleticism and essentially his genetics compared to his dad LeBron. But before we get there, let’s talk about Bronny’s competition. Real quick tho, shout out to Mars Reel for letting me use their crispy HD footage, and they got a bunch of Bronny highlights along with other players so check em out. Sierra Canyon is in California which has been the most competitive high school basketball in the country. And so not only is Bronny one of the younger players, he’s ending up playing schools like Mater Dei and Etiwanda who each have NBA prospects of their own. LeBron’s high school competition in his freshman year was nowhere near that, mostly because St. Vincent Mary wasn’t on the map. So LeBron wasn’t facing the best high school defenders until his Junior year, but he was still showing out.
Bronny’s doing everything, he’s dunking a lot, he’s making layups. Bronny really does the same one hand little rim grazer. He can dunk with 2 hands, catching alley-oops. This is still improvement from 8 months ago when dunks were more rare. His vertical seems to be getting higher, but LeBron as a 15 year old, he had a decent amount of more bunnies. This was in a sold out arena in Colombus when Bron was a 15 year old and he was just physically dominating. He made everyone else look like kids when he was a kid. And he would only get a bit bigger. He was always ranked at the top of his class. But as a freshman, what Bronny has shown is more on par with LeBron as a freshman and deserves better than the 24th ranking which I’ll get into later. LeBron wasn’t dunking everything, instead he was being crafty in the air, sort of avoiding contact. Full transparency, a lot of LeBron’s high school highlights aren’t categorized by year so seeing most montages are from his junior and senior where LeBron was so dominant that he got on Sports Illustrated at the age of 17. So just know that when you see random high school LeBron highlights pop up anywhere. Sophomore year highlights for LeBron show that LeBron was sorta just gliding in the air, right before he got all his bullying abilities. So no Bronny is not where his dad was at the same age in terms of athleticism, but it’s not completely off.
The expectations that Bronny is supposed to be doing this is extremely high and unrealistic because LeBron was literally one of the best high school players ever. But Bronny’s athleticism in the context of a normal high school freshman is up there and warrants a higher ranking. He’s not bullying through opponents just yet (show him getting blocked), but he’s being creative with his finishes. He’s been able to be acrobatic and his vertical is great. Let’s also remember that Bronny is a point guard. He’s already NBA height and he has 3 more years to go before college. Even if he only grows to 6’5” or 6’ 6”, he’s going to be one tall and lanky point guard.
Probably the most exciting part of Bronny’s game is his passing. He can thread the needle, make the right read, throw lobs from half-court, and pass it to the sweet spot of shooters. He continuously moves the ball around, very similar to his AAU days that I described in my video 8 months ago. But one thing I’ve noticed more and more is his ability to pass from awkward positions and still make pin point passes. He’s passing across his body, but still bulleting passes. I think this is something that’s directly from LeBron. LeBron was doing this all throughout high school. It’s one thing to have vision, it’s another to be able to execute these passes and he has both.
That’s the beauty of all this. Bronny is not the same as his dad, nor should he be. He’s going to develop differently, but that IQ that he has is priceless. You can see LeBron’s fingerprints on Bronny’s game, but that doesn’t mean that Bronny isn’t being himself. In fact, I think we’re just starting to see the surface of Bronny as a player and as a person. But what do you think? How good will Bronny become? Will Bronny and LeBron play in the NBA together?
