LeBron slams media after Bronny is dropped from mock draft

LeBron James slammed the sports media after his namesake son was dropped from ESPN’s mock draft.

LeBron, 39, had big dreams of playing on the same NBA team alongside his eldest son, LeBron James Jr., aka Bronny, 19.

However, sports writers are not impressed with Bronny’s stats as a 6′-4″ guard for the University of Southern California.

Bronny’s career stats in his rookie season include 5.5 points per game, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists, according to ESPN.

LeBron responded to Bronny’s removal from ESPN’s 2024 mock draft in posts on social media. Bronny is not projected to be drafted by any NBA team this year, and maybe not next year.

In a since-deleted post on Twitter/X, an angry LeBron slammed the media for picking on his boy.

“Can y’all please just let the kid be a kid and enjoy college basketball,” he wrote. “The work and results will ultimately do the talking no matter what he decides to do. If y’all don’t know he doesn’t care what a mock draft says, he just WORKS! Earned Not Given!”

In a follow-up post, LeBron wrote:

“And to all the other kids out there striving to be great just keep your head down, blinders on and keep grinding. These Mock Drafts doesn’t matter one bit! I promise you! Only the WORK MATTERS!! Let’s talk REAL BASKETBALL PEOPLE!”

Friends say Bronny is playing for USC to appease his helicopter father, but his heart is not in the game.

Bronny is currently coming off the bench for USC. He almost didn’t play this season after suffering a cardiac arrest during a workout at USC on July 24, 2023.

LeBron and Bronny sought out heart specialists who gave Bronny the green light to play this season.

LeBron also shares basketball prodigy Bryce, 16, and daughter Zhuri Nova, 9, with his wife Savannah James.
