At the moment, the best high school students are entitled to the light in the landscape of American basketball, with their McDonald’s All-American Jam Fest. Like NBA stars at All-Star Weekend, they get their own dunk contest. Bronny James broke everything, but finished second after a poorly controlled finish.
20 years after his dad LeBron, Bronny wanted to win the competition in turn. And it was off to a good start with a perfectly executed two-handed reverse dunk. Then he continued with a big windmill of the most beautiful effect. His climax came when he jumped over his brother Bryce to destroy the hoop. Surely his little personal highlight that will now turn to each family meal. And then there was the final against Sean Stewart. There, the James Junior cracked by taking inspiration from the NBA Dunk Contest 2022, which is not a compliment.
A second place therefore for Bronny, but good highlights to raise the sauce for the McDonald’s All-American Game, where he will participate this evening. His hype remains strong and will have to be confirmed during this match which acts as an All-Star Game for graduate high school students. He will certainly have the opportunity to slam other dunks and show what he is capable of.
Like in the NBA, defense is not the ultimate priority so the opportunity to shine with great moves for Twitter, Insta and Tik Tok is always great. Even if on paper he is not the player with the highest potential, Bronny is still one of the boys who will be watched the most. And maybe after this game, Bronny James will give us an indication of the university he plans to play next year, unless he decides to opt for the G League Ignite.
