NCAA/NBA prospect specialist Rashad Phillips shared his analysis of Bronny James, the eldest son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. Phillips highlighted ‘excellent’ defensive instincts of the 16-year-old Sierra Canyon guard as well as ‘good feel’ on offense.
“I’ve been asked to breakdown Bronny’s game: He’s is a 6’4 combo guard with excellent defensive instincts and upper body strength. He excels in open court and also has a good feel on offense. He’s a streaky but confident shooter. He’s actually good,” Phillips tweeted.
His verdict — Bronny can play: “Bronny James has tremendous defensive timing, strength, and awareness. His jump shot mechanics looks good from the rotation of the ball to his release point. Powerful upper body for a 6’4 kid and quick feet. The kid can play.”
LeBron was appreciative of the breakdown of Bronny’s game. “Appreciate it #Yoda. We just over here just working and preaching how to play the game the RIGHT way! 🙏🏾” the four-time NBA champion tweeted.
LeBron’s former teammate and NBA champion Kendrick Perkins also weighed in calling Bronny “1 of 1”. “He’s 1 of 1 bro!!! Real Talk,” was Perk’s reaction to James’ tweet.
