Bronny James is all set to hit the basketball court as he gears up for a new collegiate basketball season. The 19-year-old son of NBA superstar LeBron James was the talk of the town at USC’s HoopLA event, which signals the start of the season. Bronny and his fellow USC teammates warmly greeted the guests as they were formally introduced at the event.
Bronny made a grand entrance onto the basketball court wearing a Trojans jersey and sweatpants in red and yellow. He showed off his dance skills by performing a routine that included the popular dougie move, which was captured on video and shared on USC’s Instagram account. The USC event held on Thursday was not just about Bronny but also featured other well-known athletes. Attendees were treated to exciting performances by rapper Saweetie and DJ Zack Bia, making it a fun-filled kickoff celebration for Trojan athletes and supporters.
Bronny, the son of LeBron James, was celebrated by his fellow USC classmates and colleagues as he proudly sported his No. 6 jersey in a photo. Interestingly, when LeBron himself returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014, he switched back to wearing his old jersey number, No. 23, after briefly donning No. 6 during his time with the Miami Heat in 2010.
LeBron took to Instagram to share snippets of Bronny’s introduction and exit during a recent occasion. Basketball fans are eagerly awaiting Bronny’s debut in college basketball after his stint at Sierra Canyon. However, his availability for the team’s first game on November 9 is uncertain due to his recovery from a cardiac arrest in July. Unfortunately, Bronny has also been diagnosed with a significant congenital heart defect.
On September 23, USC basketball coach Andy Enfield confirmed that Bronny did not attend the team’s first practice of the year. Despite being unable to provide any medical updates on his current health, Enfield stated that Bronny is doing well academically and attending classes regularly.
Bronny had suffered from a cardiac arrest during a workout at the university in July and was hospitalized for two days before undergoing surgery.
After receiving an outpouring of support from the public, LeBron James expressed his gratitude via social media and thanked everyone for their prayers and love. He also assured everyone that his family is doing well and that they appreciate the support they have received. Although they will provide further updates when appropriate, he wanted to express his gratitude for everyone’s support so far. #JamesGang
