Bronny scored nine points, while Zaire had six to entertain the large crowd of 5,000 people who attended the game to see them.
China will get plenty of additional chances to see the star duo in action. Sierra Canyon will be in China for 12 days and will play several more Chinese high schools.
Bronny and Zaire are already getting a taste of the fame that their fathers experienced. While they might not be drawing NBA numbers yet, they certainly have attention from scouts.
Bronny is predicted to be a first-round draft pick in the 2024 draft. Zaire already has two offers from Division I schools.
It might be too early to seriously project where these two young men will end up and how their games develop, but the fact that their fathers are basketball legends will surely help.
Additionally, both of them can seriously hoop already, and the only way to go is up. It’ll be fun to watch them grow and hopefully, play in the NBA one day.
