Over the weekend, LeBron James took some time away from deciding his next career move to watch his son, LeBron ‘Bronny’ James Jr., play some basketball. And Bronny did not disappoint, as he ended up blowing his dad (and the internet) away when he attempted his first-ever in-game dunk. Bronny wasn’t able to pull the dunk off but considering the kid is only 13 years old, it’s an incredibly impressive display of athleticism, even for the son of the most athletically-gifted basketball player of all time.
The dunk attempt occurred during a game at the “Balling on the Beach” tournament at Southwest Miami Senior High School. Despite only being 13 years old, Bronny came within inches of throwing down a vicious dunk and it only feels like a matter of time before he is regularly pulling off monster dunks like his old man.
Bronny James had Dad hype after his first in game dunk attempt!
And based on James’ reaction, he was as shocked as everyone else by how close his son came to pulling off the dunk. In the video, James can be seen in full supportive dad mode as he is yelling excitedly on the sideline after Bronny’s dunk attempt. This is not the first time that James has gotten hyped watching Bronny play but it never gets old seeing James lose his damn mind seeing his son put on a show on the court.
After all, James might be the best basketball player in the world but when it comes to watching his kids play, he ceases to be a three-time World champion and immediately transforms into every sports dad. James has even reportedly expressed interest in getting to play with Bronny in the NBA someday. And based on this most recent video, it seems like a legitimate possibility, assuming James will still be playing in about six years.
