LeBron James Believes Bronny Is Better Than At Least One Of These Current NBA Players


LeBron James is a very proud father, and sometimes proud fathers say some wild things about their children because of their immense belief in them.

Late Monday night, James did just that as he declared on Twitter that his son Bronny, a current high school senior, was better than some of the players he had been watching in the NBA that night bouncing around League Pass.

That got a lot of attention and led to plenty of people wondering who, specifically, inspired this tweet. Given there were only 12 teams playing on this Tuesday night, we’ve decided to help narrow down the options to players who got minutes for their teams on Monday evening by the time LeBron had fired off this spicy take, so James would have seen them and had this epiphany.
