Where Does LeBron James’ Son Bronny Stand Amongst Peer Sons of NBA Players:
Unexpectedly low ranking…

NBA legend LeBron James’ son Bronny has made his much-anticipated college debut for the University of South California Trojans. He was only given 16 minutes, and Bronny showed his defensive prowess by nabbing three rebounds. His scoring game was vapid as he could only pot 4 points.

Going ahead in the tournament, he will be equated with his peers who are sons of NBA legends and have given their sweat and blood to the NCAA league. On comparing, Bronny stands a better chance than most of them but should dedicatedly work towards bettering his numbers.

How does Bronny compare to sons of NBA legends?

DJ Rodman is the son of the former NBA legend Dennis Rodman. He plays at the University of Southern California Trojans and is a teammate to Bronny James. Rodman used to ply his trade for the Washinton State Cougars before deciding on to transfer to the USC Trojans.

Adept at being a forward, Rodman has averaged a decent 5.9 points in the eight games he has played so far. He has performed abysmally with just 3.6 rebounds per contest and 1.3 assists per match.

Though he has shown some of his shooting prowess by basketing 80% free throw percentage, the California-born is far from his career-best in his last NCAA season when he had averaged a decent 9.6 points with 5.8 rebounds per match.

It looks as if Rodman is also trying to make a place for himself in the USC squad and has been eclipsed by their stars Boogie Ellis and Isaiah Collier. Compared to Bronny who has just made his debut, Rodman doesn’t look far off and if Bronny is given enough game time and a little bit of onus, he might surpass Rodman soon.

Another player that Bronny will be compared often is NBA legend Dajuan Wagner’s son DJ Wagner. DJ is in his freshman season and has played only 8 matches so far. But he looks to outshine Bronny since he has potted an average of 12.6 points with 3.8 assists per game.

Although his defensive skills have been shorthanded, his scoring has been on point for the Kentucky Wildcats. Wagner has a remarkable 76% free throw percentage along with a 41.1% field goal percentage.

Watching the performances of both Wagner and Bronny will be quite interesting as the season progresses. The two will take on different roles for their teams and being a freshman in their respective college teams will draw a lot of comparisons.

Their development ahead will not only speak of their game but also of their team and their coaches’ plans. Much like DJ Rodman, Memphis Tigers’ guard Jayden Hardaway is also in his fifth and last year in the NCAA circuit. Jayden is the son of Penny Hardaway. Unfortunately, Jayden could not follow on the path set by his father Penny, and has a lackluster college basketball career.

For this season, Jayden averages only 2.9 points with a solitary rebound per game. Throughout his NCAA career, his game time has been short-lived with the highest average coming in the 2022-23 season when he was on the hardcourt for almost 17 minutes per game.

His performances did not do much justice to that, since he averaged just 5.4 points in that season which surprisingly was the highest average in all his five years. The Tigers utilize him often for connecting various players in their layups. If Bronny amps up his skills, he will surely pass Hardaway by miles.

While Bronny plays the guard, he could also be drawn to parallels with another second-generational star – the Georgetown Hoyas center, Ryan Mutombo. Mutombo is the son of NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo but has not played much during his college basketball career.

This season for Georgetown he has only been given an average of 5.1 minutes in the 7 appearances he has made so far.

Ryan’s career has mostly been lackluster performances since his highest average was 5.1 points per game. If Bronny takes care of his health, he will outshine Ryan in the long run. Bronny stands a chance to outclass his peers and should make the most of this opportunity with the Andy Enfield team.
