It looks like things just keep getting better and better in the LeBron James household.
Not even 24 hours since winning his 3rd NBA Championship and 3rd NBA Finals MVP award, there’s some more good news for LeBron James – and LeBron James Jr.
“Bronny” as his parents call him, happens to be quite the baller himself. It’s probably in his genes – his Dad just so happens to be a pretty good player, too. Just 11-years old, Bronny has already drawn raving reviews from scouts all over the country. Can he be like his Dad? That’s a tall task, but that hasn’t stopped college recruiters from taking notice.
According to Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin from ESPN, Bronny already has a couple of scholarship offers in hand from some “blue-blood” college basketball programs…
Those programs? Mike Kryzewski’s Duke Blue Devils and John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats.
That’s pretty crazy, especially since it’ll be another seven years AT LEAST until we know where Bronny will be playing his college ball.
It’s no secret that Dad is likely in favor of Bronny taking his talents to Columbus to play for head coach Thad Matta and the Ohio State Buckeyes. James has long said that he would’ve played out his one year of college basketball at OSU had he not entered the draft out of high school.
It should be noted that James also has a close relationship with Kryzewski. The long-tenured coach of the United States Olympic Team has been one of James’ confidants throughout his NBA career, and Coach K is still a source that James keeps in close contact with. So, advantage Blue Devils?
Right now, it’s #BlueDevils and #BigBlueNation, but this story is far from over.
