So what you guys are all saying, is that Levar Ball was right about LeBrons son.
(lol, I joke!)
(lol, I joke!)
#2 is really good. The biggest difference is that #2 is super aggressive while Bronny is more passive, from what I've seen (which I'm sure is influenced from LBJ and I don't see as a bad thing). Passing or playing within an offense isn't going to get much recognition as a kid.
Others may have more talent, but that doesn't always equate to more success. I don't think anybody is saying Bronny is going to be an NBA star, but I think it is just as foolish to say he for sure won't be. It's just interesting to see the progress and how talented these kids are. He has a feel for a game which can't be taught, that much is for sure. If/when he hits a big growth spurt is when he will likely begin to separate himself. Not that he couldn't be very good as a 6'2 point guard, but a 6'6-6'8 point guard with hops is next level NBA tools. Which we won't know for awhile.
It's fun to think about what could be, but predicting or judging at this point is hard to do. And stats don't mean much either even. MJ developed late. Players have developed in college late and became great NBA players. LaMelo Ball might put up insane statlines in highschool, but it doesn't mean he will be good in the NBA. In fact, I don't think he will if he even makes it. His style of play is garbage and the NBA will eat him alive. Talent isn't everything if not used properly. But taking my own advice, LaMelo ball could develop a more mature style down the road so you never know. Tons of factors go into it.
Well at least he's almost the same size as LeBron at that age. Just needs the growth spurtThanks for posting. Yeah, he's definitely not a standout like LeBron with the size and athleticism advantage over everyone else on the court. Hopefully he hits a big time growth spurt and added athleticism soon, if he wants to play in the NBA. As you say, he obviously could make it without it, but there are a lot more 6'3" ish highly skilled players out there than 6'6+ obviously.

James’ team was coached by Dru Joyce, the same guy who coached him in high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Ohio. Paul’s team was coached by Andy Poplin, who is now the 17-and-under coach for Paul’s showcase travel team, the CP3 All-Stars.
He already has better handles than his Dad too. He is going to be significantly smaller than his Dad, so having better ball handling skills is very important.https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.yahoo.com/amphtml/sports/lebron-james-jr-put-dominant-show-godfather-chris-paul-watching-054004587.html
It’s crazy how LeBron Junior already has his dad’s ability to make crazy cross court bullet passes.
I hope Lebron is smart and has injected him with Hgh since young age. Wise career decision imo.I think Bronny has a pretty big wingspan compared to his old man. Bron is rocking a decent 7'0 wingspan but Bronny could have that wingspan as a 6'6" guy. Could be that kids his age are skinny which makes em look lanky but even his hands look big which projects well for growth.
It's too costly though for normal folks, unless your kid has hgh deficiency.I'm definitely doing that to my kids. The ol gal is with it too when it comes to that point lmao.
