LeBron James Jr. is slowly developing into a great basketball star, and some even say that he will be as great as his dad. Well, if you ask LeBron, he will say that Bronny will be even greater than him. Is Mike Krzyzevsky fine with this?
The Duke coach is scouting Bronny who has yet to play a high school basketball match. Krzyzevsky attended Bronny’s first Nike EYBL event with AAU team Strive for Greatness in Atlanta over the weekend. The Blue Devils’ coach was sitting courtside to watch Bronny’s game.
The eight-grader has an offer to play for the Blue Davis. That’s not all. A few other schools have also shown interested in LeBron’s son. LeBron once said he wouldn’t mind having Krzyzevsky teaching his son. Bronny may enter the NBA in 2023, and believe it or not, the kid is already one of the top-rated players.
“Love coach K! The absolute BEST! Hope he’s still at the helm when my boy comes up!” the Lakers star wrote on Instagram in November.
Will Krzyzevsky just sit back and do nothing over the next few years? Will he just wayt for Bronny?
“It’s been a treat to watch, being a parent and seeing my son grow as a basketball player,” LeBron said of Bronny in one of his recent interviews. “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.”
