For the second time in his short basketball career, Proviso East High School’s Bronny James has made a name for himself on YouTube. After earning over 700,000 views with his windmill dunk attempt at the beginning of the year, he didn’t stop there. With another 150K+ view since then, James is continuing to put up videos that are sure to keep fans entertained while they await high school hoops season this fall.
Bronny James was injured in a game against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night. He suffered a sprained ankle and has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Bronny James is getting closer to following in his father’s footsteps and entering the NBA. In the class of 2023, the high school junior is a four-star talent, and he’ll be able to join the NBA draft as early as 2024.
Bronny was unable to play for a few months after having knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus in February. But, based on the spectacular windmill dunk he knocked down at Sierra Canyon’s Midnight Madness event over the weekend, he’s back to 100 percent health.

Bronny tore his meniscus in the midst of his second season at Sierra Canyon in early February. A few weeks later, the great prospect had surgery to fix the injuries.
The injury came at an inopportune time for LeBron’s eldest son and protégé, since he missed his whole sophomore season. Bronny scored 4.1 points per game in 15 minutes as a freshman in 2019-20.
Bronny is still a four-star talent in the class of 2023, despite the injury scaring away a few college coaches. 247Sports has him listed as the 52nd top prospect in the class.
With a spectacular windmill dunk, Bronny James harnesses his inner LeBron James.
Bronny hasn’t been seen much in recent months as he recovers from a damaged meniscus that kept him out of his sophomore season, but he seemed to be in perfect condition over the weekend while competing in a dunk contest for his high school.
Bronny slammed down a fantastic windmill dunk during Sierra Canyon’s Midnight Madness event on Friday, sending his teammates and supporters into a frenzy. “Scary hours coming soon!!” LeBron captioned a video of the slam on Instagram.
LeBron also shared a still shot of Bronny’s dunk, which enhanced its impact. The 6-foot-3 guard was photographed with his head over the hoop, demonstrating that he has fully healed from his knee injury and is potentially more athletic than his father, despite the fact that he is just 17 years old.
In the NBA, teaming up with your father?
Bronny should be able to play a full season as a junior for Sierra Canyon now that his health is back on track. As he strives to enhance his recruitment rating moving into his senior year, all eyes will be on the top prospect.
Bronny will most likely be able to attend any institution of his choice in 2023. Not only is he one of the finest guards in his class, but snagging LeBron’s kid would be a dream come true for whatever college coach gets him to put pen to paper.
When Bronny graduates from high school in 2023, the focus will shift to whether he will be able to join his father in the NBA. LeBron will be 40 years old by December 2024, so he’ll be long beyond his peak by the time Bronny arrives.
Nonetheless, the future Hall of Famer wants to remain in the league long enough to play against (or alongside) his kid on an NBA floor.
