Bronny James played like a star at Peach Jam

Bronny James played like a star at Peach Jam

With LeBron James as his father and more than six million Instagram followers, you’d expect more Bronny James highlights to hit the timelines a la Zion Williamson. But the 6-foot-3 rising high school senior has a quieter — yet effective — game than his celebrity status would suggest.

That changed on day one of Peach Jam, one of the most competitive grassroots tournaments, though. The 17-year-old put everyone on notice. Some reporters called it the most aggressive game from him they’d seen.

James scored 28 points on 5-of-11 shooting from 3-point range with six assists and three rebounds. He flashed his ability to create space on jumpers, finish around the rim and lead teammates to the bucket. He looked like a complete player!

On day two at Peach Jam, he showed what he could bring on the defensive end, too.

That’s on top of dishing the game-winning assist to finish with 11 points and seven assists in his second game

The four-star recruit, who ranks No. 46 in his class according to 247Sports, has yet to commit to any college or state intentions to play elsewhere.

But damn, he’s looking like a player with pro potential.
