LeBron James Voices Displeasure with Media Response to Son Bronny’s Exclusion from 2024 Mock Draft

LeBron James Voices Displeasure Over Bronny’s Draft Speculation

NBA icon LeBron James has expressed frustration with recent speculation surrounding his son, Bronny James, amid talks about his potential NBA draft prospects.

Bronny James, who began his freshman season at USC with considerable anticipation, faced setbacks including a summer cardiac arrest and inconsistent performances during his first collegiate season. Consequently, his projected draft stock took a hit, with ESPN’s Jonathan Givony notably downgrading him to the No. 39 pick in his 2025 mock draft, following his exclusion from the 2024 draft.

The ensuing discussions about Bronny’s future at USC prompted LeBron to take to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to address the media’s scrutiny. In since-deleted tweets, he urged observers to allow his son to enjoy his college basketball journey without undue pressure.

“Can yall please just let the kid be a kid and enjoy college basketball,” LeBron implored. “The work and results will ultimately do the talking no matter what he decides to do.”

He further emphasized the importance of hard work over mock draft predictions, encouraging aspiring athletes to focus on their development rather than external evaluations.

Bronny James made his return to the court for USC against Long Beach State on Dec. 10 after a period of recovery from his health scare. Despite facing challenges, he has contributed to the Trojans’ defensive prowess while showcasing his skills, though his statistical output has been modest.

While LeBron has fueled excitement about the prospect of playing alongside his son in the NBA, he has stressed the importance of Bronny’s personal development and enjoyment of the game, downplaying premature speculation about his future in professional basketball.

Bronny’s journey continues to unfold, with his father’s support and guidance shaping his path amid the pressures of expectations and anticipation.
