Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is known for loving his family intensely and being extremely protective of them.
This was on display when he got angry about being asked an unfortunate question regarding his son Bronny, when he had the opportunity to bring his family into last year’s NBA Bubble, and when that whole fiasco with Bronny and Larsa Pippen occurred.
As such, his most recent actions shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
During a recent AAU game played at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, LeBron’s alma mater, he heard the announcer say something he really didn’t like.
What got LeBron so hot and bothered?
Late in the game, the public address announcer seemingly suggested that Bronny was going to get some favorable foul calls because his dad was in the gym.
That’s what set LeBron off.
All in all, this was a fun preview of what life will be like when LeBron and Bronny are playing together in the NBA. It’s an open secret at this point that LeBron has been laying the groundwork for this to occur for years now.
Well that settles that. https://t.co/s4NxQP2MHr

In fact, it’s so known that one team has positioned itself perfectly to capitalize.
How will Bronny like having his pops yelling at refs who wrong him when they’re on the same team in four years? Time will tell.
