"Maximus on the Rise": Bryce James is Passionately Hyped Up By Father LeBron James on IG After Very Impressive Highlights

Bryce James may only be 15, but he has already caught the eye of countless recruiters and NBA scouts. He already stands at 6’6”, and can shoot the lights out, while also making sure his teammates get better with every passing second. Highlighting all this and more, ‘Uninterrupted’ recently published a post with clips of some of the best moments Bryce has had on a basketball court recently. And after watching it, LeBron James just couldn’t seem to hold in his excitement, as he vehemently showed his son off to the world on his Instagram.

Bronny James recently made his debut in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) as part of the team Strive For Greatness (SFG). And from his first match, the young man hit the ground running, showing out with some beautiful moves against Team Take Over (TTO). Frankly, especially given his upcoming future as an NBA star, we’d highly recommend taking a look at how good he is already.

So far, LeBron James’s sons seem to have bright futures ahead of them. The older one, Bronny James has already been projected as a top 10 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft by ESPN. And when it comes to Bryce Maximus James, scouts just can’t stop raving either. In fact, it is widely believed that Bryce is by far the better brother, and could even evolve into a Kevin Durant-esque player in the NBA, as per ‘it’‘.

And as if with the intention of demonstrating just that to the world, James came up with some very impressive highlights, playing in the EYBL. Something father LeBron couldn’t help but get beyond excited over. Take a look at the Instagram post in question, as well as the tweet below with a screenshot of LeBron James’s reaction.
