LeBron James has reacted to his son’s viral comment about Golden State Warriors star point guard Steph Curry.
Earlier this week, Bronny James was answering questions on Instagram Live. Someone asked Bronny who his dad is. Bronny James responded with: “Steph Curry.”
We’re not exactly sure why Bronny James said Steph Curry, but everyone obviously knows who his dad is, so he was probably just giving a silly question a silly answer.
Uhh what? 😂

North Carolina Central’s LeVelle Moton offered Bronny James a scholarship earlier this year. He recently spoke about how HBCUs can recruit against the major programs.
“When you think of the atrocities that have happened in our society, in a society where an arena is named after someone who is a known racist, at a school where if these kids were playing back when he was coaching, he would not have allowed them on his team and those schools would not even have allowed them to attend – those kids go flocking to that school to go play in that arena today,” he told ESPN’s The Undefeated.
“But when a coach is from a black college and offers that kid the same opportunity, that coach is criticized. That doesn’t even make sense.’’
It’s likely that Moton was referring to Kentucky, which is believed to have offered Bronny James a scholarship.
Where do you ultimately see Bronny James playing college basketball?
