Bronny entering HS with LeBron-sized spotlight

Skyy Clark, one of Bronny’s grassroots teammates with the Strive For Greatness (Under 15), pointed out Bronny could barely dunk at the start of the Nike EYBL season in late April. That ability escalated quickly. “Now he’s over here wind-milling, 360-ing and cradling,” Clark said. “That’s in three or four months.”’ data-reactid=”40″>There’s been a distinct uptick in LeBron James Jr.’s athleticism the past few months, a hint that his game could keep developing. Skyy Clark, one of Bronny’s grassroots teammates with the Strive For Greatness (Under 15), pointed out Bronny could barely dunk at the start of the Nike EYBL season in late April. That ability escalated quickly. “Now he’s over here wind-milling, 360-ing and cradling,” Clark said. “That’s in three or four months.”

What’s certain about Bronny’s immediate future is that it will be accompanied with relentless fanfare. On Saturday night, a highlight of Bronny dunking before a grassroots game in Las Vegas appeared on ESPN. It was accompanied by a highlight of his father dunking in the pregame warmup line.

Clark has felt the tailwinds of fame from being Bronny’s grassroots teammate. He said he went from 27,000 Instagram followers to 144,000 in about three months. (Bronny already has 2.9 million followers, which means he’s only about 1.1 million behind Zion Williamson.)’ data-reactid=”43″>Clark has felt the tailwinds of fame from being Bronny’s grassroots teammate.

Clark praised LeBron for giving pep talks to the Strive For Greatness grassroots team. “We have a little group chat on Instagram, he’s always texting us,” said Clark, a top point guard in the 2022 class. “He doesn’t act super Hollywood. He bonds with us.”

James also poked fun at Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim for criticizing former Orange commitment Darius Bazley for skipping college to prepare for the NBA draft.’ data-reactid=”49″>James also poked fun at Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim for criticizing former Orange commitment Darius Bazley for skipping college to prepare for the NBA draft.

For many college coaches, scouting Bronny appears to be futile. “For us, why would we waste our time recruiting him?” asked a high major assistant coach. “It’s going to be a circus.”

The Bronny circus is coming to high school basketball. No matter how loud the din and how many Instagram highlights it produces, the reality is that Bronny has a lot of developing to do before his dad’s dream becomes a reality.
