Bronny James is one of the most highly-touted high school basketball prospects in the nation.
Any time he suits up for Sierra Canyon, it is a big time affair. And this past week was no exception.
In a highly anticipated battle, LeBron James’ eldest son took on Carmelo Anthony’s son, Kiyan, last Wednesday.
Multiple Kardashians showed up to watch the action unfold:

The Kardashians were likely there in support of La La Anthony, but that didn’t stop fans from making some jokes about the matter:
She’s obviously there to recruit Bronny for Kendall’s All-NBA Team

When it was all said and done, the Kardashians witnessed quite the show. Sierra Canyon ended up winning the outing 62-51, but both Bronny and Kiyan balled out.
Bronny finished with 12 points, six rebounds and three assists, while Kiyan had eight points, two rebounds and two assists.
The fact that Bronny is bringing out this sort of star power is unsurprising, though. He has massive crossover appeal that rivals some pro athletes.
Between the way that video of him getting into a heated altercation with a rival player went viral, his girlfriend breakup drama being frontpage news, and how much everyone enjoyed his encounter with an OnlyFans model – he is a big time celeb.

In any event, though – Bronny has handled this entire process about as well as any 18-year-old could possibly be expected to. He has celebrities at his games. He has the eyes of the world on his every move.
And yet despite it all, much like his dad, this is a kid that never says the wrong thing and never gets into any real trouble.
No matter where his career goes from here, you have to respect how he has conducted himself up to this point.
