Bryce James, the younger son of NBA superstar LeBron James, has shared a heartwarming post following the sad and shocking development involving his older brother Bronny.
The sports world was rocked following reports on Tuesday that revealed Bronny collapsed during practice at USC due to cardiac arrest the previous day and had to be rushed to hospital.
Bronny is looking forward to his freshman year with the Trojans ahead of what could be an NBA career. However, the incident has thrown such prospects to the back seat.
Tributes and well wishes have been flooding social media since the news broke on Tuesday, including a post from Bryce, who was Bronny’s Sierra Canyon and AAU teammate.
The younger James brother posted a photo of himself and Bronny standing next to each other with a heart emoji in the middle.
