LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. has been garnering a lot of attention this year. He’s entering his first year of high school this fall but already has top programs scrambling to give him college scholarship offers. Based on what he just did in a recent game, it’s easy to understand why.
A video from Ballislife.com revealed an incredible highlight from a recent game Bronny played. As if having his famous father’s eyes wasn’t appealing enough, he displayed one of his father’s signature moves: The chase-down block.
With an opposing player unimpeded and heading towards the net for an easy layup, Bronny seemingly comes out of nowhere to swat the layup down.

Granted Bronny still lacks his father’s incredible combination of size and speed, but having a move like that in his arsenal at such a young age will certainly serve him well in the years to come.
Bronny won’t be eligible for college until 2023, but he’s attracted tons of attentions from a pair of NCAA blue bloods.
He has an outstanding scholarship offer from Kentucky, and has already made an unofficial visit to Duke.
247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions currently have him tipped to join the Blue Devils.
As for Bronny’s father, LeBron James the elder is 34 and coming off his 16th NBA season. Just about any NBA player would love the opportunity to play at the same time as his son, but LeBron would have to keep it together for another five years at least to have a shot.
But never say never!
