LeBron James shows how son Bronny will have team-first attitude

LeBron Bronny James

LeBron James answered a question about his son Bronny’s freshman basketball season and gave a glimpse into what kind of values he’s preaching for his son on the court.

MaxPreps, a site that covers high school sports, wrote an article asking what kind of role we can expect Bronny to have at Sierra Canyon this winter. Keep in mind that Bronny is not yet even a high school; this is an incoming freshman they wrote about!

While the youngster is dealing with unfair questions of that nature, LeBron decided to speak out on his behalf, answering the tweet/question via Twitter.

“Expect a kid that will play for his teammates,” LeBron said of Bronny. “Will work hard, pay his dues and when his number is called he’ll make mistakes like any kid but will be ready and coached very well. Someone who doesn’t care about rankings cause the only thing that matters is his team success.”

How can you argue with that approach? He’s instilling a patient, hard-working, team-first attitude with his son. That’s the exact opposite of the criticisms we’ve heard about the AAU culture in basketball.

Some may want to call Bronny spoiled or entitled simply due to who his father is, but it seems like LeBron is trying to give his son guidelines to avoid making himself a target for such remarks. The approach is admirable.
