LeBron James’ son, ‘Bronny’, headed to Crossroads

first_imgRelated Articles UCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers Additional reporting by the Daily News supports the TMZ report. This decision comes after a long summer of speculation on where the NBA superstar’s son would land, one of the schools including Chatsworth’s Sierra Canyon.The decision comes as no surprise, although, many high school fans had Bronny pegged for Sierra Canyon after Gary Payton said the 13-year old was “committed” to play there back in early June.Geographically it makes sense, although Brentwood High – which was one of three realistic choices – is closer, the James family resides in Brentwood, where LeBron James Sr. owns two houses in the same neighborhood.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Most of the speculation about Bronny going to Sierra Canyon came from the NBA bloodline connection that logistically just didn’t make sense. Yes, Kenyon Martin and Scottie Pippen’s sons play for Sierra Canyon, but by the time Bronny enters high school KJ Martin and Scotty Pippen will be freshmen in college – playing together was never realistic. CIF Southern Section received PPP loan of $456,100 for coronavirus relief Survivors’ attorneys accuse Bahram Hojreh’s family of witness intimidation High School Wrap: Everything you need to know about what’s happening in high school sports It’s a different story at Crossroads.The Roadrunners won last year’s CIF State Division 2 title led by 6-foot-10 Shareef O’Neal, son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal. Despite Shareef being a senior last season, Shaquille has a younger son named Shaqir, who will be a sophomore this coming year.Bronny’s AAU basketball team, the North Coast Blue Chips, had a successful summer, including the winning of the seventh grade national championship in Charlotte, N.C.. As the height of Bronny’s young fame ballooned, so did the anticipation of where he’d attend school in the fall after recently moving to Los Angeles.In the past month, multiple photos of Shareef and Bronny together have been seen on social media, in what seemed like a summer of bonding between the two. Shareef gave kudos to the Bronny for handling the media and hype at just age 13, but more importantly dealing with the celebrity of being the son of an NBA legend.“Bronny…One kid I can relate to a lot…we both kind of have it the same way, being the son of an NBA legend isn’t easy and to get all of this at a young age is a real challenge to adjust to..,” Shareef posted on Instagram.“Bronny has it a little bit worse than I do, but the difference between him and I, he can back his up at such a young age..when I would get hate from people in the crowd at 14/15 years old..I would choke up and wouldn’t play my game and I’m still getting the hang of it .. it’s all a journey … this kid has it all! I’m looking forward to seeing him kill it for the rest of his career!”Baron Davis, who attended Crossroads before going to UCLA and the NBA, tweeted, “Welcome to Xrds Bronny!!! You will kill it. Happy to see this. Thanks @KingJames.”Congrats to my little brothers bronny and Mikey on winning the championship ❤️🤞🏽 pic.twitter.com/QwnOFY5MnT— Shareef O’Neal (@SSJreef) July 30, 2018 San Gabriel Valley coaches doubling as teachers ready for remote-learning kickoff AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers LeBron James Jr. has chosen.Initially reported by TMZ Sports, the young standout basketball prodigy, also known as “Bronny”, will attend eighth grade in Santa Monica at Crossroads, a kindergarten through 12th grade institution.Welcome to the family LIL bro ❤️🙏🏾 https://t.co/OD1w2B3SzQ— Shareef O’Neal (@SSJreef) August 6, 2018 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
