Watch: LeBron James Jr. Is Back, Bronny & Blue Chips Make Debut in Alabama
March 9, 2019
The North Coast Blue Chips came back to the AAU scene in the most brilliant way. The team went 2-0 to start the Battle of the Magic City tournament. They won a close game over TSF Georgia and a rematch against Nate Sasser and Nightrydas Elite. Bronny was part of the squad, and his father couldn’t be more proud for him.
“My kid has his own personality, he has his own DNA. We share the same name but he has his own path,” LeBron said of Bronny. “But it was cool when he came downstairs the other day and showed me that he was wearing 23 and then my youngest son came to me and showed me that he was wearing 6.”
LeBron is really proud of the kid. He always talks about it, and maybe one they they will play on the same team.
“It’s been a treat to watch, being a parent and seeing my son grow as a basketball player,” LeBron said. “But not only that, being a young man who he is today; the kid will be 14 soon. Just seeing him grow and grow and grow to become who he is today has been a treat. I think from the burden of him having the name itself, I think him understanding that just go out and just play the game and have fun and play for your teammates and give it all you’ve got. You play hard, you play smart and have fun, and let everything else take care of itself. The one thing that I have is the luxury of knowing everything that he can expect. There’s nothing that can hit him that I haven’t seen in my life. There is no obstacle that he will run into that I haven’t been a part of that I can’t coach him. At the end of the day, he’s still going to have to live his own life and find his own path. But I hope he turns off his comments on social media. That would be the smartest thing he can do.”
