Although Bronny James will still be a senior at Sierra Canyon School, he’s probably the most followed prospect to come out of high school.

LeBron James’ son was in Paris, France, for an AAU game, playing in a jam-packed gym that followed the younger James’ every move. Against an under-18 French team, the 6’2″ went guard up for a thunderous dunk that had the arena shaking.

The proud father promptly went on Twitter to say:

“OH MY GOODNESS BRONNY!!!!!”

OH MY GOODNESS BRONNY!!!!! 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱

Bronny James has reportedly generated interest from several top programs in US college basketball. UCLA, Michigan, Oregon and Ohio State are rumored to be among the teams who have shown interest in James Jr.

There is speculation that LeBron James’ son will go the one-and-done route to get drafted into the NBA. He may be a second-round talent at best, but teams could use a first-round pick on him to lure the LA Lakers forward.

Bronny James will be draft eligible for 2024. In the meantime, LeBron James and his fans will keep cheering and following James Jr.’s exploits in high school.

James and Green have been largely inseparable in the offseason, with the latter even cheering on the four-time MVP in the Drew League.

After the momentous ceremony and celebration, LeBron James took to social media to send his congratulations to the newly-married couple:

“@money23green @lovehazelrenee What an amazing time it was!! Congratulations to you both on a beautiful/wonderful wedding and thank you so much allowing my Queen @mrs_savannahrj and I to be apart of the best day of your lives thus far! It was an honor! Love y’all.”

Perhaps one of the most iconic photos captured after the wedding was of James, Curry and Green cheekily reminding everyone of their 12 championship rings.

It’s heartwarming to see fierce rivals on the NBA basketball court becoming great buddies off it.

A few weeks ago, the social media world was stunned by Jeanie Buss’ tweet where she was selling PS5s to any willing buyer. While most people immediately and rightly concluded that their account was hacked, several were still duped by the incident.

Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the LA Lakers governor revealed her thoughts and reactions after the weird post went viral:

“It was awful, I got hacked. I feel so bad because the people who followed me on Twitter know me and trust me and they really fell for this hack. It was a humbling experience.”

After realizing that her Twitter account had been hacked, Buss went promptly on the LA Lakers’ site to inform people of the situation:

“Lakers Fans, my Twitter account has been hacked. Please do not engage with it or send any money. These are NOT legitimate offers. The Lakers will alert you when I am back in control of my account.” -Jeanie Buss

The Twitter hubbub aside, Buss has been very busy trying to get things in order this summer. She’s still waiting for LeBron James to sign an extension and has also had to contend with endless trade rumors involving Russell Westbrook.
