James Jr. enters the big game.
Duke Basketball is known for the routine to recruit sons of college and professional basketball players. A great number of NBA alumni’s kids opt to play for head coach Mike Krzyzewski. The current roster includes Justin Robinson and Antonio Vrankovich. Their dads were professional players. Gary Trent and others came through the Blue Devils’ program. Guess who comes next… LeBron James Jr. is now linked to the Duke program, and his age is not even a problem.
Duke and Kentucky have already made an offer. There’s this video circulating on Overtime and BallsLife indicating that Bronny will be as awesome as his dad on the basketball court.
James and the North Coast Blue Chips had a tour at Cameron Indoor Stadium. They also walked though the K Center, Duke’s practice facility adjacent to Cameron.
Bronny is just 13, and he was already spotted dunking in awesome pregame warmups.
Former Duke guard and current Director of Basketball Operations Nolan Smith was in charge of the AAU team’s tour of the facilities. The group was greeted by current Duke freshman Zion Williamson. He told the coaches that he’s doing pretty well as a Duke college freshman. “Man it’s cool. I’m learning a lot about my body. The days here are long. You wake up around 7:30 and don’t really go to sleep until like 12 because you got homework and if you’re trying to be the best you’ve got to get up extra shots,” Williamson said.
Krzyzewski has an awesome relationship with King James. They joined forces for two gold metal winning Olympic teams with the USA Basketball. Will Krzyzewski still coach at the moment Bronny enrolls in college? Who knows…
This says pretty much a lot about Bronny’s future in the world of basketball. This kid will be a star.
