LeBron James & Family Celebrate Bronny During Senior Night
A family that plays together, stays together.
This much is certainly true for the family of NBA star Lebron James, who recently showed up in full support for Bronny James’s senior night at Sierra Canyon High School, which was reportedly the young athlete’s final home game.
According to reports, Bronny James balled out during senior night, scoring a near triple-double with 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists in their win against Loyola. Right next to him on the court was little brother Bryce, 15, who also plays for Sierra Canyon. After the win, the entire James clan, including the Lakers star’s wife Savannah and daughter Zhuri, 8, posed for a photo-op with the young hoopers. Reports state that music mogul Sean ‘Diddy‘ Combs was also in attendance.
Lebron took to Instagram earlier today (January 12th) posting photos from the event. The captioned them:
“So D*mn Proud of the Young Man you’ve become @bronny!! Yesterday we celebrated you for Senior Night! Can’t believe how fast time is flying by but at the same time I haven’t taken 1 second for granted being your dad! Love you kid! Keep leading, being an example to/for your siblings/ your peers and most importantly simply just keep being YOU!!!! ThekidfromAKRON #JamesGang #BronnyakaHIM?
As we previously reported, Bronny is moving towards a bright future in the basketball world. The 18-year-old was the first high school hoop star to ever get a NIL deal with Beats By Dre, and also inked a deal with Nike. While previously speaking about his partnership with the apparel company, Bronny stated:
“For as long as I can remember, Nike’s been a part of my family…Getting a chance to team up with them and continue my family’s legacy both on the court and in the community is wild—it really means a lot to me.”
We’re excited to announce the newest student athletes to join our Nike family: Caitlin Clark, Bronny James, Haley Jones, DJ Wagner and Juju Watkins.

Bronny’s famous dad, who many consider to be the greatest basketball player of all time, has hopes for his son making it to the NBA one day. During a previous profile interview, NBA champ Lebron James stated he wants to remain in the league long enough to play alongside Bronny. He stated:
“My last year will be played with my son…Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.”
Both Bronny and Bryce have the advantage of not only having one of the all-time greats as a mentor and a father but also having the luxury of truly getting a feel of the professional game. Last year the three James hoopers were recorded at the Lakers facility, getting some practice in. Lebron shared moments from the event on his Instagram with the caption:
“Simply no better feeling than doing what I love to do with who I love!” the father of three wrote in an Instagram video. “Great work today Young[kings]’s #JamesGang #EarnedNotGiven”
At this time, it’s unclear if or where Bronny will choose to attend college. It is reported, however, that he’s received offers from various prestigious schools, including Ohio State and Duke University. Reportedly, he is the only top-50 player still available for recruitment.
