Bronny James is one of the most notable high school basketball prospects in the country right now. That comes with its fair share of positives and negatives.
On the good end of the spectrum, Bronny’ll likely have his pick of the litter and will go to whatever university he wants. Nobody will turn down LeBron James eldest son, regardless of any other circumstances.
Unfortunately, celebrity life has its downsides as well. And Bronny learned that firsthand this week when an encounter he had with a fan went viral.
The interaction between them largely speaks for itself:
Bronny was so confused 😐

Reactions to the whole ordeal Bronny was forced to endure were fairly mixed:

This has been a crazy year for Bronny, through and through.
Between the five collegiate powerhouses trying to curry favor with him, all the comparisons between him and his younger brother Bryce and all his romantic relationship drama – it has been one thing after another.
Through it all Bronny has kept his head held high, his mouth shut and continued to put in work. There’s a reason so many universities want to bring him on. He possesses all the skills you’d want from a youngster both mentally and physically.
Obviously time will tell if Bronny will be a success at the next level or not. His game will do the talking for him.

But up to this point, Bronny has handled the pressure and attention that comes with being LeBron’s son about as well as anyone could.
What does the future hold for the heir apparent to the James family throne?
Time will tell.
