Kommt schon, Leute, lasst LeBron James ein stolzer Vater sein!

LeBron James has every right to assess the attention his son Bronny is receiving. The young man no longer even goes by LeBron Jr. because the surname, associated with his life and Southern Cal basketball jersey, already carries enough pressure.

Big LeBron is proud of the way his son approaches basketball. Although Bronny is nowhere near as tall as his father, he takes the game seriously. Bronny reads the floor well, hustles, plays defense, and can jump. Despite all of Bronny’s talent, ESPN’s Mock NBA Draft now views the Southern Cal freshman as a talent for 2025. His father used social media platforms to address this information.

The legitimate NBA Central Twitter Aggregate Account posted on Monday that Bronny is no longer listed in the ESPN 2024 NBA Mock Draft. His father quoted this post, expressing that college basketball players should be able to play without social media speculation about their draft prospects.

Within hours, James deleted his Twitter post asking people to leave Bronny alone. Social media reminded Daddy James of a night in 2023 when he expressed his belief that his son was better than some NBA players currently playing.

Returning less than a year later and asking the public to calm down about Bronny’s current status is not realistic, especially when the 39-year-old father is still playing like one of the best NBA players. Words from James about his son are scrutinized much more than the young man’s on-court results. Bronny had a frightening moment during summer workouts, collapsing during a basketball training session in July 2023 but seems to have recovered. As a result, he has only played 19 games as a freshman at USC.

As LeBron is arguably the pop culture figure of his generation, he knows that any basketball attention his children receive will be magnified. Wanting people to lay off them is a reasonable reaction from a father, but the cat is already out of the bag.

If James hadn’t been so open about wanting to play alongside his eldest son in the NBA during his career, he might have achieved this goal more quietly. Now that Bronny’s college years have begun, LeBron’s desire to be a proud father is thwarted by the basketball economy.

Bronny seems to have recovered from his health scare in the summer and is playing basketball for one of the most prominent programs in college sports. He is also the most marketable non-athlete in America. Bronny had a commercial with the Fast and Furious franchise before his first training session at USC. For this young man, there is no flying under the radar, no matter what his famous father deletes from social media.

LeBron has long been steering his career. He has made enough right decisions and reached enough milestones to be regarded as one of the greatest athletes in American history. The kid from Akron knows the game on and off the court well enough to understand what lies ahead for his son.

Yet even an American sports icon can be overwhelmed by parental pride. LeBron should have left his Monday post, contradicting a post from last season. Just because he is a legend doesn’t mean he is an overly protective parent.
