The crowd at the Nationwide Arena was filled with 13000 cheering fans who were shouting and roaring on every single shot. Many of them were not there to see the high school game but to see the NBA superstar LeBron James and his son Bronny James.
Bronny James made his debut for Ohio as he scored a go-ahead jumper shot for the 59-56 victory of Sierra Canyon Trailblazers against the St. Vincent-St. Mary Irish. With this win, Sierra Canyon is now 8-0.
Watching this game from the sidelines and perhaps cheering most of all the audience was none other than the proud father LeBron James who is the most famous alum of the St. Vincent-St. Mary Irish School.
LeBron James while playing for his school led them to win 3 states titles in his 4 years with them which brought massive waves in the sports world.
Now it is turn for Bronny James.

The court was encircled by 400+ media members who were capturing each pass, each dribble and each shot made by the firstborn of the NBA King. Bronny might have been playing this game against his current school has his family not moved to the west for LeBron to join the LA Lakers.
Over the years after LeBron helped put the St. Vincent-St. Mary Irish School on the map, he has also donated 2 million dollars to help renovate the gym of the school which now features his name. He has also written a check for 25000 dollars to help the players and band members to buy new uniforms. The athletic director at the very same school is LeBron’s best friend Willie McGee.
In order to watch his son’s first high school game, LeBron James took a private plane flight from Miami. He came on the night before the game and had dinner with his friends from high school which he called Fab Five. On the game day, LeBron saw the game alongside his wife Savannah and his business partner named Maverick Carter and his old teammate from high school Romeo Travis.
