As the eldest son of the legendary three-time NBA champion LeBron James, 15-year-old LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. of California’s Sierra Canyon High School has a style of play that is similar to his esteemed father, but one difference is the jump shot. Some critics say that James Jr. has a better jump shot than James at his age, and to his credit, James agrees with them.
Can’t ever be mad at the facts!!! Flame thrower he has! And by the way I probably got the 3rd best jump shot in the household. Bryce Maximus got a cooker too! https://t.co/p5ym1pZVJZ

In a recent Twitter post, EPSN National Recruiting Director and NBA Draft analyst Paul Biancardi praised James Jr’s jump shot, even calling it better than his father’s, saying: “I hope LeBron is not going to get mad at me, but I think Bronny’s jump shot is a little bit better.” Not only does James agree that his eldest son’s jump shot is better than his, James says that his second son, Bryce Maximus also has a better jump shot than him. In a reply to the tweet, James said: “Can’t ever be mad at the facts!!! Flame thrower he has! And by the way I probably got the 3rd best jump shot in the household. Bryce Maximus got a cooker too!”
LeBron James is known as the best player of this generation and is one of, if not the, greatest basketball players of all time. Standing at 6-feet-9-inches tall and weighing over 250 pounds, James’s size and outstanding athleticism, combined with his otherworldly skill, talent and versatility make him a threat from anywhere on the court at any position. However, one relative weakness to James’s game would be his jump shot, especially during the first few years of his NBA career. James’s jump shot was inconsistent when he first entered the NBA in 2003 and it took him around three years to develop a consistent jump shot. James then went on to become the offensive juggernaut he is today.
Though James Jr. is only a freshman in high school, he is a very talented player in his own right and his chances of playing in the NBA someday look as good as his jump shot. On James Jr’s future, James said in an Instagram post: “It’s My Job to pass along to Blueprint so it allows him (his brother and sister) to Rumble Young Man/Woman Rumble! Heir to the Throne.”
