It happened. 13-year-old LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. has finally been captured on camera throwing down a dunk. The moment came on Sunday before the North Coast Blue Chips’ semifinal game in the Bigfoot Hoops Las Vegas Classic. Bronny lobbed the ball for a one-handed alley-oop and flawlessly flushed it through the hoop.
It appears that Bronny was mimicking the dunk that his father threw down the previous day when LeBron put on a show during his warmups.
Bronny has been trying for a little while to throw down a dunk and coming up just short.
It felt like it was only a matter of time before he got one down, and that day was today. Earlier this week, a clip from the upcoming series The Shop surfaced which showed LeBron talking about why he still regrets naming Bronny after him. His main concern was that his kids would have to play in his shadow, especially in a sport like basketball that he has dominated since his high school days. Bronny’s dunk proves that he’s not only up for the challenge, but that he will also succeed.
