Bronny James scores 27 in Los Angeles basketball debut

Lebron James Jr. made his California basketball debut scoring 27 points in a win for his eighth-grade basketball team Santa Monica Crossroads.

Bronny showcased his skill set hitting multiple three pointers and throwing down his first in game dunk. Bronny showing out on the court isn’t exactly a new story; maybe the biggest take away from Bronny’s first game in L.A. was his number change. On the AAU circuit Bronny wore the number 0 because of Russell Westbrook but in his most recent game he was wearing his dad’s No. 23.  

Lebron commented on the switch after the Lakers practice on Tuesday.

“I don’t know how longs it’s going to last, but it definitely made me feel proud.” Said James.

Bronny has the chance to do something special at his new school, if he makes the varsity team as a freshman he will be playing with Shaq’s son Shaqir, the two of them on the court together would be quite the combination of talent.
