Following in famous parents’ footsteps is never easy, and that’s not the only pressure celebrity kids feel as they grow up.
While it certainly has some perks, living with the name ‘LeBron James’ isn’t always peachy. LeBron James Jr. learned that the hard way Thursday night, when his youth basketball game was cancelled due to a security issue.
The problem happened when a parent of the opposing team complained about not being able to get into the gym because it was too crowded. Bronny’s father, LeBron was also there to watch his son play, so obviously there was a lot of security, who then ushered the teams off of the court as the scene got too hectic for basketball to carry on.
This is just one example that shows that – unlike popular belief – having celebrity parents is not easy. When it gets to the point where these kids can’t even go about their life as normal children and just play a youth basketball game, the situation is simply ridiculous.
LeBron James Jr. is not the only kid who has felt the pressure. Shareef O’Neal, son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal can also relate to the struggles. He recently took to Instagram to talk about the topic and send his support to young Bronny.
It’s good to see that the two young boys are bonding and care for each other. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll even see Shareef and Bronny on the NBA hardwood together.
