Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James praised his son, Bronny James, while throwing apparent shade at other NBA players in a tweet shared Monday (March 6) night.
The four-time NBA champion said he was watching games on NBA League Pass, but didn't specify which teams or players he was referring to.
"Man Bronny definitely better than some of these cats I've been watching on league pass today. S*** lightweight hilarious," James tweeted.
James' tweet came hours before his son was officially upgraded as a five-star prospect and the No. 9 overall player for the 2023 national recruiting cycle, according to On3.com.
“Even with the brightest of spotlights on him, Bronny continues to grow in his game,” On3 national recruiting analyst Jamie Shaw, who has been scouting James throughout his high school career, wrote in an article published on Tuesday (March 7). “He entered Sierra Canyon as a freshman and arguably as the most famous high schooler in sports. This fame has followed him, and even continued to grow. But so has Bronny’s game.
LeBron James has publicly expressed his interest in playing with his son before his retirement "if it's possible."
"I also have a goal that, if it's possible -- I don't even know if it's possible -- that if I can play with my son, I would love to do that," James said via ESPN. "Is that, like, something that any man shouldn't want that in life? That's like the coolest thing that could possibly happen. That doesn't mean I don't want to be with this franchise."
The 38-year-old is currently dealing with a foot injury he experienced during the Lakers' win against the Dallas Mavericks on February 26 and has since missed the past four games.
