Bryce and Bronny James were featured in a video congratulating LeBron for his 4th ring. They didn’t look all that happy on tape.
Preceding opening night pleasantries tonight was the Lakers’ ring ceremony for their 17th NBA title. The 2020 rings are predicted to be the most expensive championship rings ever made. They look really great, all things considered – from that championship ring standpoint.
The Lakers played a video of various people congratulating every member of their championship team. LeBron’s own video was about a minute long. It consisted of congratulatory messages from his mother Gloria, his uncles and his kids Zhuri, Bryce and Bronny James, among other people.

NBA Twitter trolls Bronny James for his bored expression in congratulatory video
Bryce gave his congratulatory message around the 0:52 mark in the Twitter video above. He’s seen sitting with Zhuri and Bronny, and he sports a matter-of-fact expression. Bronny’s part comes at the 1:03 mark, interspersed with Gloria’s clips.
There seems to be almost no enthusiasm in either of his sons for James’s victory at all. NBA Twitter noticed that, and promptly got on their backs.
Did they record the vid after Bronny got his ass whooping lmao???

The Lakers went on to lose their opening night fixture against the Clippers for a second year in a row. James sat most of the second half with an ankle problem, but he assured fans he’d be back in action on Christmas Day.
