LeBron James Jr. honored Kobe Bryant Tuesday with a highlight-reel slam-dunk reminiscent of the late Lakers legend. (See it below.)
“Bronny” James and his Sierra Canyon high school teammates paid tribute to Bryant before their game against Campbell Hall, but the youngster’s third-quarter slam off a lob punctuated the evening and brought father LeBron to his feet.
The announcer called the jam an “incredible highlight.”
As seen in clips below, Bronny and his teammates honored Bryant by wearing Bryant T-shirts during warmups at Sierra Canyon’s gym in the Chatsworth area of Los Angeles.
At the start of the game, opponent Campbell Hall took a 24-second violation as an homage to Bryant’s No. 24 jersey as fans began chanting “Kobe.” Sierra Canyon took an 8-second violation for Bryant’s other jersey number, 8.
LeBron James’ Lakers were previously scheduled to play the Clippers on Tuesday, but the NBA game was postponed to mourn Bryant, who died Sunday in a helicopter crash with his daughter Gianna and seven others.
Sierra Canyon won, 83-57, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Here are videos of the tribute.
