Bronny James and Bryce James are two of the most fascinating high school basketball prospects in the country right now. Because both are the sons of LeBron James, everything about them has been under an intense magnifying glass for years.
Including their sizes.
In recent months, many have attempted to discern whether Bryce is actually bigger than his big brother.
This week, photos emerged which settled that question once and for all.
First there was this image that LeBron published to Instagram:

Then came these pictures from a Sports Illustrated cover story on the James clan:

For all the talk about whether Bryce was getting bigger than Bronny, the photos quite clearly show that is not yet the case. Moreover – Bronny has the frame you would expect from someone his age while Bryce is still very slender like most athletic 15-year-old boys are.
Last week, Bryce got his first ever college basketball scholarship offer despite his age.
The future looks bright for both James boys.
LeBron has made it clear over the years that he wants to play alongside Bronny in the NBA one day. But this week, in a conversation with Sports Illustrated, he suggested that he also wanted to team up with Bryce as well.
“I like to throw things out in the airwaves, but I’m not one to [say] what’s going to happen in the next two to three years,” LeBron told SI. “I am a visionary, but I’m also a guy that lives in the moment. I’d definitely be looking at who got first-round picks in 2024, 2025, things of that nature; 2026, ’27. I pay attention to that type of stuff.”
When pressed specifically on whether he could envision himself playing alongside Bryce, LeBron responded honestly.
“I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it’s all up to the body, but more importantly, my mind,” he said. “If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky’s not even the limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see.”
She made quite an impression on the players.https://t.co/8SR87QdUkm

Tom Brady is the obvious analogy here, but LeBron’s body has been breaking down with increasing frequency in recent years in a way that Brady’s did not.
Time will tell if his dream of playing with Bronny and Bryce ultimately materializes.
But if anyone can get it done – it’s definitely the King.
