Draft Notes

Bronny is the oldest son of LeBron James and he’s a gifted basketball talent who is following his father’s footsteps to the NBA. After a solid but mostly unspectacular season at USC Bronny is jumping into the 2024 NBA Draft.

His younger brother Bryce is a high level prospect as well.

He’s not nearly as big as his old man but has an above-the-rim game, very good strength and good length for his size. He’s a heady player who knows how to play a supportive role on a team and doesn’t need to be chucking up shots to be happy.

He’s also an incredibly humble and level-headed young man who should fit well on any NBA team, even if he’s not getting big minutes.

  • Has good court vision, feel for the game and elite level understanding/BBIQ
  • Strong build with good quickness and excellent leaping ability
  • Great bloodlines – and will have every opportunity in the world to make it.
  • Can shoot the three and make plays off the bounce – projects as a better shooter than his old man.
  • Has deep range.
  • Can play above the rim and is still improving his athleticism.
  • Has broad shoulders and a lot of strength. Has a guards game and skill level but can take a lot of contact and hold his own against taller players. 
  • Is a standout defender who gives great effort and plays with high energy. Doesn’t take plays off.
  • Brings a ton of excitement to the arena and is a fan’s (and a marketers) dream.
  • Has to work on all areas of his game, just as all young players do.
  • Can he develop his lead guard skills?
  • Can get caught over penetrating and gets swallowed up by the defense.
  • Sometimes jumps to pass, which gets him in trouble.
  • Projects as a role player who will have to earn his minutes with great defense, connective passing and good 3pt shooting.

Comparisons

  • Avery Bradley
  • George Hill
  • Marcus Smart
