Being the son of the NBA’s all-time scoring leader is not an easy legacy to live up. LeBron James’ oldest child, Bronny James, is a senior at Sierra Canon high school in California. USA Basketball announced their men’s and women’s roster for the upcoming Nike Hoop Summit and leading that list of names was none other than Bronny James. This will be his first experience playing against international talent. 

ESPN has James ranked as the 28th best recruit in the class of 2023, but he is the only player of the 26 men and women selected who hasn’t committed to a school yet. Some of the top programs in the country like USC, Oregon, and Ohio State have been near the top of his list.

He will join 12 other teammates who will compete on April 8th against a team comprised of international players at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.
