LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. will soon display his basketball talents on a national stage.
The eldest son of NBA icon LeBron Sr. will play in the prestigious McDonald’s All-Star Game on March 28 in Houston.
James Jr., currently a senior at Sierra Canyon High School near Los Angeles, will play for the West Squad at the Toyota Center. ESPN 2 will provide TV coverage.
Of the 24 athletes who will match jump shots and dunks, the 6-foot-3, 180-pound James Jr. is the only one who has not yet made a college commitment.
James Jr.’s list of “finalists” includes UCLA, Southern Cal, Oregon, Michigan and Ohio State. LeBron James Sr. had made a verbal commitment to play for Ohio State before opting for the NBA.
James Sr. was the McDonald’s MVP in 2003 in Cleveland before nearly 19,000 fans.
