13-year-old LeBron James Jr., nicknamed Bronny, made his debut at 2018 Swish-n-Dish NY2LA event over the weekend. Highlights of the event made their way online via (See video below.)


Though his notable handle and passing ability showed continued growth, it's a nasty breakdown of a defender that became the centerpiece. The undressi-dribble was filthy enough to have his father comment on his Instagram, according to Uproxx.

In the video, an opposing player picks up young Bronny three-quarter court, and finds himself at the top of the key. James Jr. froze the brave player's lower body with a vicious spin, that left the young man on the floor with his left ankle in a divet on the way down.


With highlights like these, an older version of LeBron James may end up playing his mini-me after all.

Bronny chill out! We practice sportsmanship in this house. But he did pick you up in the backcourt like he wanted smoke so u had to do what you had to do.
