Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James was in attendance to watch his son Bronny James and Sierra Canyon take on Paul VI Catholic High School (Virginia) in Springfield, Massachusetts, Monday afternoon. According to Krysten Peek of
Bronny only played 13 minutes in the game, only attempting two shots, which he missed both. However, early on in the second half, a fan decided to throw what seemed to be a piece of candy at [Bronny] James from the stands, according to Peek. The official stopped the game immediately and signaled for security to escort the fan out of the build. Apparently, The King was standing 50 feet away and could be seen shaking his head.
Bronny’s teammate Ziaire Williams revealed that we would be surprised by the things Bronny had to endure this season.
“You’d be surprised by all the stuff Bronny has to go through,” teammate Ziaire Williams told Peek after the game. “It’s not fair, but he doesn’t let it phase him at all. I’m learning how to be more like that from him, and he’s younger than me.”
“I told my teammates, we had to come out strong and with a lot of energy,” Keels said. “We’re playing in front of the best player in the world today.”
The King would embrace his son after the loss before he had to jet out to Boston to prepare to play the Celtics later Monday Night.
