Braves land haymaker on Mets to open pivotal series: 3 things you might’ve missed
Bronny James has been on NBA radars for years, thanks to his famous dad. But as he gets closer to draft eligibility he’s continuing to impress on big stages.
Bronny James is just heading into his senior year of high school but he’s already been mentioned as an NBA Draft prospect for nearly half a decade. That’s what comes from being the oldest son of LeBron James.
But Bronny’s draft stock isn’t just nepotism run amok. The 6-foot-3 guard is ranked as a top-40 prospect in ESPN’s ranking of the class of 2023 and he has reportedly already received offers from Michigan, Ohio State, USC, Kentucky and Oregon.
Scouting reports highlight his quickness and defensive intensity, as well as his potential as a transition threat and secondary creator. And of course, there is his finishing ability, which was on full display last night in a game against the U18 French Select Team as part of the AXE Euro Tour, an international AAU competition.

Going end to end for the monster jam drew plenty of big reactions and also some inevitable comparisons to his dad.
Bronny’s team, California Basketball Club, has one more game on this tour, against Stella Azzurra in Rome, on Thursday, Aug. 18 at noon ET, and can be seen on ESPNU. He also isn’t the only potential future NBA player on the roster. CBC also features his younger brother Bryce, as well as Ashton Hardaway, the son of Penny Hardaway.
