Lakers’ LeBron James shares touching message for Bronny James after Sierra Canyon incident
Via Instagram, James advised his son to always take the high road no matter what happens. The Lakers star also wanted Bronny to know that he always has his back.
“Know I got your back and front throughout it all! I’d die for you and your siblings. Never waver no matter what disrespect, hate, envy, jealousy, etc comes your way! Only push forward and continue to be the great kid/young man/person you are! Love you kid!!” LeBron wrote on IG.

James was referring to the incident in the second half of Sierra Canyon’s contest against Paul VI Catholic High School. As the younger James was about to inbound the ball, a fan threw something at him. The said fan was subsequently thrown out of the game.
Sierra Canyon’s games have been garnering nationwide attention. After all, the team has the sons of two NBA legends, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.
Whenever James attends Sierra Canyon’s games, additional security is scattered all over the floor. Several thousand (or even million) eyes are also watching the game.
“You’d be surprised by all the stuff Bronny has to go through,” teammate Ziaire Williams told Yahoo Sports after the game. “It’s not fair, but he doesn’t let it faze him at all. I’m learning how to be more like that from him and he’s younger than me.”
LeBron James is also talking from his experience. After all, James entered the mainstream consciousness as a high school prodigy in the early 2000s. A mixture of hype and hate followed him on his NBA journey, but amid the criticisms thrown at him, the Lakers star just keeps playing the game he loves the most.
