As the son of LeBron James, he is sure to draw the attention of the pros. While his youngest son, Bryce James, isn’t at the top of the recruiting ladder, NBA teams were keen to get a look at his game during this week’s Nike Peach Jam.
Krysten Peek, NBA draft analyst for Yahoo! Sports reported that scouts from teams including the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns and Atlanta Hawks “made James a priority” on Monday, Game Day one.
James scored 12 points and made two of his six 3-point attempts as his Strive For Greatness team defeated the Expressions 78-69 in the 16U division.
James is a 6:4 shooting guard and has excellent shooting mechanics and a high release value. He gets to the edge a little easier and has found a second breakthrough in the transition.

Here’s a video of three of his shots, two of which are 3-pointers.

On Wednesday, LeBron James and Rajon Rondo showed up to take part in coaching the team – to no avail, like them Florida rebels clinched the 72-67 win over Strive For Greatness.

James, a Campbell Hall School (Valley Village, California) shooting guard in the class of 2025, is hoping to use this school year to improve his game and become a legitimate division player. I forecast. He certainly has the attention of the scouts – as evidenced by his performance at the Peach Jam – but he needs to keep improving to make it to the next level.
