LeBron James charmed fans this week with how he enthusiastically coached his son in a basketball game at the NBA star’s former high school in Akron, Ohio.
Lebron James Jr., aka Bronny, took part in a tournament called “The Battle” featuring teams from the Amateur Athletic Union on Friday night. The 16-year-old showed off his impressive skills during the game as his team, Strive for Greatness, played against Cincinnati, the Midwest Basketball Club of Ohio. The Midwest Basketball Club defeated Strive for Greatness 99-97.
It was a very exciting game both on and off the pitch.
The Los Angeles Lakers star was seen in videos posted online training his son while he was shooting and advertising Bronny during the game.
Elder James, who is often seen with his family cheering on Bronny and his other son, Bryce Maximus, at basketball games, was on Friday night at his old playground.
The tournament was held at a gymnasium named after James, the LeBron James Arena, in St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, where the NBA star was a student. James donated $ 1 million to renovate the gymnasium in 2012, and the arena was renamed in his honor the following year.
People on Twitter enjoyed seeing the basketball legend cheering on Bronny at his alma mater:
