Bronny James, son of NBA star LeBron James, is dealing with unique pressures as he tries to make it in basketball. On Monday, he spoke on SiriusXM NBA Radio about the criticism he faces.

"It's tough," Bronny said. "A lot of criticism gets thrown my way. But you know, I've got to deal with it. We all know what I've been through. I just try to make the best of my opportunities."

Bronny's time at USC wasn't outstanding. He averaged 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game over 19.4 minutes, playing in 25 games and starting in six. His shooting stats—36.6% from the field and 26.7% from three-point range—were not impressive.

There were challenges. Bronny suffered cardiac arrest in July and didn't start his freshman season until December. This setback affected his performance.

"He was in a tough situation in college," an NBA executive told ESPN. "He had the health issue, and their backcourt was already set with top players. He needs more time, but he could become an NBA player in a few years."


Bronny is known for his defense and playmaking but needs to improve his scoring. He might not get drafted or could go in the second round. Some say he should return to school to develop further.

Some teams might consider drafting Bronny to attract his father, LeBron. However, LeBron has said his free agency decision won't depend on where his son is drafted.


While Bronny won't be expected to match his father's legendary career, he still faces high expectations. His performance at the NBA Draft Combine was strong, raising his draft prospects. Time will tell if he can make his own mark in the NBA.
