LeBron James charmed fans this week with the way he enthusiastically coached his son from the sidelines during a basketball game at the NBA star’s former high school in Akron, Ohio.
Lebron James Jr., aka Bronny, played in a tournament called “The Battle” showcasing Amateur Athletic Union teams on Friday night. The 16-year-old showed off his impressive skills during the game as his team, Strive for Greatness, played against Cincinnati, Ohio’s Midwest Basketball Club. The Midwest Basketball Club beat Strive for Greatness 99–97.
The game had a great deal of excitement both on and off the court.
The Los Angeles Lakers star was seen in videos posted online coaching his son as he was shooting around, and hyping Bronny up from the sidelines during the game.
The tournament took place in a gym named after James, the LeBron James Arena, at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, where the NBA star was a student. James donated $1 million to renovate the gym in 2012, and the arena was renamed after him the following year.
People on Twitter enjoyed seeing the basketball legend cheering on Bronny at his alma mater:
