LeBron James’ eldest son, Bronny James, was selected 55th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers at last week’s NBA Draft after initial rumors. While many predicted this move, Bronny recently shared that it wasn’t something he had considered.

During his introductory press conference on Tuesday, ahead of his first practice with the team, Bronny exuded confidence and made it clear that his primary focus was on his own development, not on teaming up with his father.

I’m trying to get my name out for myself. I just want to come in and get my work in and get better every day. I never really had a thought of me going to play with my dad. That’s always there to take part in, but it wasn’t a main focus of mine,” Bronny said.

Despite knowing that his performance will attract a lot of scrutiny, Bronny is prepared for the criticism, something he has faced throughout his college career.

For sure, there’s an amplified amount of pressure. I’ve already seen it on social media and the Internet, talking about how I might not deserve an opportunity. But I’ve been dealing with stuff like this my whole life, so it’s nothing different. It’s more amplified for sure, but I’ll get through it,” Bronny added.

Fans Slam Bronny James’ for His Lying on Teaming Up With His Father

Bronny James before that draft urged the NBA teams not to draft him for his father’s name. But behind the curtain, his agent Rich Paul reportedly reached out to all the teams to not draft him as the Los Angeles Lakers saved their draft pick for Bronny.

Paul even claimed that if any team would draft Bronny, he would go to Australia. Hence, after Bronny’s recent take, the NBA fans again pointed their guns at Bronny for lying.

Apart from Paul, LeBron James himself shared his intention to share the court with his son. Nevertheless, Bronny now can’t deny his father’s words. So, it’s safe to receive backlashes.

Fans did not hesitate to remind Bronny of his USC career, which LeBron’s son didn’t end on a good note.
