You grow up so fast.
LeBron James’ eldest son, Bronny, attended his high school prom at Sierra Canyon School in Los Angeles last weekend, where the 17-year-old basketball prodigy arrived in a luxury sports car.
The star point guard – who, like his father, previously reported on Sports Illustrated – wore a blue and black suit with velvet shoes.
Bronny’s date was dressed to impress in a strapless white gown that featured a plunging neckline and feathered leg slit. His mother, Savannah James, shared a series of photos on Instagram and was admittedly emotional about the milestone event.
“Sooooo @bronny went to prom last weekend…tons of emotions and realizations,” she wrote in her caption. “Time really flies. 🥲 So proud of you young man!! I will always have your front and back!!💕 Zhuri handles all of that too!! 😂😂 (last slide).”
The last photo in the collage showed the youngest of the James children, 7-year-old Zhuri, who sported a poker face in a photo of her brother posing with his prom date.
“Zhuri is not here! She doesn’t play with her brothers!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣,” James wrote in the comments, which included sweet messages from family friends La La Anthony and Adrienne Bosh.
Bronny is currently in his junior year at Sierra Canyon, where the point guard is focused on his playing career. He’s the 54th college prospect since April, according to 247Sports.com.
The teenager will be drafted in two years under current NBA rules, which require new players to be at least 19 years old and at least a year from graduating from high school.
James has long said he wants to play in the NBA with his son, and discussed the possibility in a recent Twitter Q&A with fans during his offseason – which started in April after the Lakers failed to make the playoffs.
When asked if he “100% plans to play with Bronny,” the four-time NBA champion, said James“That’s the plan! God willing.”
