It’s still a bit early to get overly excited about LeBron James, Jr. Obviously he has a hugely talented father and expectations for Bronnie are high, but not that many athletic talents match, much less exceed their fathers. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are notable exceptions as is Duke grad Gerald Henderson, Jr. and Grant Hill. For everyone of those guys though you can find like Chris Collins or Justin Robinson who will never get close to where their famous fathers were athletically. It’s just hard to have all the stars align twice.

That’s not to sell Bronnie short although he is still a good bit shorter than his dad, around 7 or 8 inches.

But he’s 14 and clearly talented and if you look at this video of him dunking, you can see where he’s heading. More importantly, look at the picture below it of him about to dunk. His hands are big and he’s likely to grow into them.

Here’s another question almost no one has asked yet: which one of the next generation James’ will be the best?
