LeBron James yells at Bronny James to get open for a bucket to drain the game-winner in last night’s AAU game but Bronny would miss it.
Combining the fact that Bronny James is a talented, young prospect who’s prone to create highlights on the regular with also the fact that he’s LeBron James’s eldest son would result in a ton of publicity. Hollywood and rap megastars such as Michael B. Jordan and Drake have shown up to Bronny’s games on a multitude of occasions.
LeBron James is almost always present for his son’s AAU and high school games, coaching him and his team from the sidelines. Following his departure from Sierra Canyon, Bronny James is now a part of a team that goes by the name of ‘Strive for Greatness’; a mantra that LeBron has been known to preach for years.
In last night’s AAU game, Strive for Greatness faced off against the Midwest Basketball Team that featured a familiar. Bronny’s teammate, Gabe Cupps, from when they were both BlueChips was on the opposing team.

Last night’s AAU game between ‘SFG’ and Midwest took place at the ‘Home of the Fighting Irish’ which is better known as St Vincet-St Mary’s high school; this is where LeBron James went during his high school days in the early 2000s. Unfortunately, the home team could not snag a win last night as Midwest lit it up from outside.

Despite their hot shooting, guys like Tre White fought to get SFG back in the game. With a couple seconds left in the 4th, the ball found its way to Bronny. Down two, the 16-year-old took a fadeaway 3 that would hit the back-iron of the rim, leading to a Midwest victory.
LeBron James was seen on the sidelines, yelling at Bronny to “get open for a bucket”. In all fairness, the difficulty of the shot he took coupled with the fact that he had a defender draped all over him makes sense as to why he missed it.
