Bryce Maximus James is an Elite Basketball Player

Having been trained by his father and older brother, Bryce began making a name for himself in the game of basketball, even before the age of 10. He has been associated with several Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball teams. So far, he has been a sensational player as part of his school’s basketball team and has also been so popular for his shooting range.

Various videos that capture some of the youngster’s amazing performances on the court, most especially his shooting prowess have been shared on social media. As a result, many people compare him to young Steph Curry.

Even though for now, Bryce Maximus James is yet to have the amazing scoring ability of his brother, who has much potential to play in the NBA or even the great passing ability and prowess of his father that has made him a king in the court, it is apparent that he may end up becoming as great as his father.

He Also Harbors Interest in Other Sports

Aside from basketball, Bryce Maximus James has been passionate about other sports. While growing up, he loved other sports, including ice hockey and football. But then, his father did not want him to play either because he was scared for the safety of the child. However, as he kept growing, he was allowed to decide what sport he wanted to play. To the surprise of no one, he chose basketball. In 2018, his father made a tweet describing his son as the best shooter in the house, he called him the Flame Thrower.

Bryce Maximus James’ Height

Regarding his height, Bryce Maximus James is not yet a teenager, hence, his actual height cannot be determined since he is still in his growing stage. Nonetheless, considering that when James Jr. was 14 years of age, he had a height of 5 feet 11 inches (1. 80m) and their father has a height of 6 feet 8 inches (2.03m), it is easy to assume that he will grow to become a man of a good height. Perhaps, if anything can stop him from playing basketball, it would not be his height.

Family Support

Bryce Maximus James enjoys the complete support of his family, as he tries to become a better player with each passing day. Following his efforts to improve his games, his father and other family members take out time to always cheer him up by attending his school games and other tournaments.

Social Media Presence

Even though he is yet to enter his teen years, Bryce has decent followership on social media. On Instagram, he has amassed over 5,000 followers. He is not the most popular kid that you may easily find on social media platforms and this can be attributed to him not getting too involved with social networking.
