Bronny James made a great PR move with his soft-spoken words, denouncing people who said he was after Larsa Pippen and calling them childish.
The internet truly is a merciless place. The most harmless trolls and jokes can turn hostile in the blink of an eye. Given both Bronny and Larsa’s recent public past, both have a soft target on their Internet backs. Trolls flock to these relatives of famous basketball players.
Bronny was trolled by a segment of NBA fans in tongue-in-cheek fashion 2 days ago. This came in the wake of him liking an Instagram post by Larsa Pippen. Larsa has been in the news for seeing Timberwolves player Malik Beasley while he was still married with a child.
It was sick, what they attributed both Larsa and Bronny to be. Larsa’s eldest son Scotty is a good friend of Bronny’s and is 4 years older.

It is one thing to be a grownup said to be thirsting after a beautiful celebrity like Larsa. But the age difference between Bronny and Larsa is so big that the jokes don’t sound the least bit funny.
It is quite telling when a child is that much more mature in his public behaviour than a whole host of ‘adults’. The difference between Bronny’s response and the trolls he responded to is humongous. One understands basic decency, the other faction is just looking for cheap laughs.
