Bryce James – the Aspiring Basketball Player

He is a star-player of his school’s basketball team. Various basketball clubs, such as ‘Duke’ and ‘Kentucky’ have made him offers. Just like his elder brother, Bronny, Bryce plays at the AAU ‘Amateur Athletic Union’ level for the ‘North Coast Blue Chips.’
With his excellent shooting skills, Bryce has already made a name for himself. Even before he turned 10, he displayed his talent for shooting and passing. His father, LeBron James, also praises his second son as ‘the best shooter of the James family.’ According to the talent scouts, his ball handling skills and athleticism are comparable to someone years older or in their late teens.
Inheriting Father’s Hard Working Habits
In his father, Bryce has got the best possible coach, but he, along with his brother, doesn’t take things for granted. Both the boys put in untiring hours of hard work, and are dedicated to their game practice. Their father was once surprised to see both his sons practicing in their driveway at 5 O’clock in the morning.
Guidance from the NBA Superstar Father
In 2018, when Bryce was 11, his school team won one of the interschool games but after the tournament, Bryce wasn’t exactly happy with his own game and felt that he had not shot the ball well. His father, who was in the audience, gave him some pep talk, and told him not to get carried away without any reason. Senior James pointed out Bryce’s 3 main plays which helped his team win the match. He told his son not to worry about missing shots or making shots.
He posted this video clip on his social media account which then went viral. Many viewers felt that it was all staged to enhance LeBron’s image, because it is difficult for any microphone to pick up each word so clearly across a busy court. That indicated that he was wearing a mic for recording the clip. However, many others thought that there was nothing wrong in recording, and the video was considered as an example of good parenting.
Bryce is very popular on the social media app ‘TikTok.’ A dance video of him and Bronny dancing together garnered numerous views. The brothers have compilations of their videos on YouTube.
