In a surprising move, LeBron James has sparked controversy with a tweet endorsing his son Bronny James and implying that some NBA players are inferior to his son.

During a six-game NBA slate on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Lakers star caused a stir on Twitter with his statement, claiming that his son is better than many players he had watched on League Pass that day.

The tweet included laughing emojis, adding to the mockery of the unnamed players.

While many consider James a leader in the NBA and a respectful player, this tweet has given disrespect to his peers, causing speculation and criticism.

The identity of the players in question remains unclear, but many are assuming James is referring to multiple players, rather than just one.

The tweet has caused fans and critics to question James' intentions, as he seems determined to promote his son's basketball career, even if it means belittling other players.

It is clear that James is pushing for Bronny to succeed in the NBA, regardless of the impact it may have on others.

While it is not uncommon for parents to support their children's careers, James' tweet has been viewed by some as inappropriate and unsportsmanlike.

It is yet to be seen how the tweet will impact James' reputation within the league and with fans.
