During Day 2 of the 2024 NBA Draft Combine Bronny James son of LeBron James made a big statement. Even though he had a good performance he got attention for his statement regarding teaming up with his father. This line of enquiry was triggered by reports that multiple clubs are considering picking him to tempt LeBron James

As per PINKVILLA, Bronny James stated, "No, never," as reported by HoopsHype's Michael Scotto. He elaborated, "My ultimate dream has consistently been to make a name for myself and ascend to the NBA, a shared goal by everyone here."

"The thought of playing alongside my dad never crossed my mind, although he has mentioned it a couple of times," and he chuckled off the idea, downplaying any serious considerations.

Bronny James, LeBron James' kid, has inspired a surge of various viewpoints this year. He made himself eligible for the upcoming NBA draft after a disappointing first year at the University of Southern California.

Combine started with Bronny James taking part

His average score of 4.8 points per game, along with a substantially poor shooting average, has led to speculation that the hype around him is due to favouritism rather than his abilities. However, Bronny James is among the other 78 players who are selected by NBA executives and NBA scouts for the NBA Draft Combine and is Excited and grateful. "It's an honour and I am to display my progression post-the previous season," he stated as per PINKVILLA.

The Combine started with physical examination and drills as Bronny James took part in the final group. 

After the physical tests, the emphasis shifted to shooting drills, 3-on-3 games, and pick-and-roll repetitions. James struggled with rhythm at first, as did many others. During different drills, James was spotted helping his teammates, cheerfully taking the coaches' comments, and keeping a professional attitude. His 3-point shooting ability impressed NBA scouts and executives, who envisioned him as a potential NBA contender.
