Mother of NBA “nephew” begs LeBron James to allow youngest son Bryce to play against Bronny in NCAA basketball tournament:
What a surprise… (VIDEO)
The James family has been making waves across social media, with each of them dominating at their respective levels. With LeBron James performing like he is still in his prime at the age of 38, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
His younger son, Bryce, is leading Sierra Canyon to new heights, as their current record stands at 10-1. Meanwhile, Bronny has made impressive strides, recovering from a cardiac arrest and getting back on the court with the USC Trojans.
However, this development in the James family has prompted his NBA nephew Tari Eason‘s mother to plead for a face-off between his two sons.
The sibling showdown: Bronny vs Bryce
In a recent X (formerly known as Twitter) post, Tari Eason’s mother, Teroya Eason, posted a clip of Bryce posting a barrage of baskets from all three levels. She also urged LeBron James to send his second-born to UCLA, setting the stage for UCLA vs. USC. This showdown will, in turn, pit James’ two sons, Bronny and Bryce, against each other. She wrote, “@KingJames this one has to go to UCLA! Pretty please!”

Bryce’s college recruitment process has been kept under wraps, just as it was with Bronny. However, he has made unofficial visits to Ohio State and USC. He already has scholarships lined up from several Division 1 programs, including Duquesne and Ohio State.
However, he might follow in his brother’s footsteps and join USC. UCLA was also aggressively pursuing Bronny. Therefore, that could also be a potential landing destination for Bryce. With all these excellent performances, the popularity and numbers of the brothers are also on the rise.
Bryce James is the highest-valued high school athlete by NIL Value
Bronny James is one of the richest athletes in terms of NIL valuations, thanks to LeBron James. However, his little brother is not far behind. In December 2022, Bryce inked a Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) contract with Klutch Sports, which led to his valuation of over $1 million.
According to On3, Bryce’s current NIL valuation stands at $1.2 million. That number would have been even higher had it not been for his Notre Dame exit.
Bryce spent the better part of his junior year moving schools. After spending his freshman and sophomore years at Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, Bryce briefly transferred to Campbell Hall School.
After spending the summer there, he then moved to Notre Dame High School. Unfortunately, he had to transfer back to Sierra Canyon since the shooting guard was ineligible to play for Notre Dame, as per the California Interscholastic Federation’s rules.
After the exit, his value dropped by just $742, but that did not threaten his position as the highest-valued high school athlete in NIL rankings. Currently, he is taking the high school basketball scene by storm with his impressive performance, reminiscent of LeBron James.
