Whether it is music or sports, acting, or even politics, it is not hard to find the children of the greats walking in the shoes of their parents. Hence, it does not surprise anyone when LeBron James said he was hoping to play in the NBA with his son, LeBron James Jr. However, Bronny, as he is nicknamed, is not the only child of King James that plays the sport, there is also Bryce Maximus James who although is still young, is showing signs of hitting the same floor as his father.
Bryce Maximus James Bio (Age)
June 14, 2007, was the day Bryce Maximus James was born to one of basketball’s greatest, LeBron James and Savannah Brinson. He is the second of the three children of James.
With LeBron James as his father and Bronny as his brother, Maximus grew up with basketball around the house, and so he began playing when he was still a child. He has always been trained by his father together with his elder brother and because of this, he started making a name for himself in the sport even before the age of 10.
At present, the young James attends Old Trail School in Akron, Ohio where he is a sensation in the school’s basketball team. With the team, he is very popular for his shooting range.
Various videos of the young star playing for his AAU team, which capture some of the very amazing things he does on the court most especially with shooting, have been shared on social media, having people compare him to young Steph Curry.
Even though for now, he is yet to have the amazing scoring ability of his brother which has made him the one to watch for the future or even the great passing ability and prowess of his father that has made him a king in the court, it is apparent that Bryce may end up growing as good as his brother and as great as his father.
As regards his height, Bryce Maximus James is still not a teenager, hence, his actual height cannot be determined since he is in his growing stage.
Nonetheless, considering that when he was 14, James Jr. had a height of 5 feet 11 inches and their father has a height of 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m), it is easy to assume that he will grow to become a man of a very good height. In fact, if anything can stop him from playing basketball, height may not be it.
Other Facts About Lebron James’ Son

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.
