LeBron James is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time and commands one of the most loyal supporter bases to ever exist in the sport.

One of the many instances of his immense worldwide following occurred recently when a packed crowd in the United Kingdom greeted his sons Bronny James and Bryce James when the brothers shared a basketball court together in a exhibition face-off at the Axe Euro Tour.

As California Basketball Club went up against Hoopsfix Elite of the UK, fans in London lined up in numbers in front of the Copper Box Arena a good four hours before the tip-off to see one of the most highly expected games of the summer.

The occasion was not a major league basketball game, but the overseas debut of rising senior Bronny James and his younger brother Bryce James in game 1 of the European World Tour.

However, the pair’s last names meant the crowd checked in numbers to see the children of one of the greatest basketball players of all time in action.

WHAT WAS THE RESULT OF THE GAME?

Bronny, 17, and Bryce, 15, turned out for California Club and put on a commendable performance – but could not help the American outfit to a win as they succumbed to a 81-74 loss to the British outfit.

However, despite the pair being on the away team, they certainly got the loudest cheers of the night. It is only after the summer of 2024 when Bronny James will be eligible to be drafted into the NBA, (Bryce’s time will come even after that) but it seems like fans worldwide can hardly wait to see them in action on the basketball court.

While the pressure may be on the pair to replicate or even scale their father’s incredible success which is already a very steep mountain to climb they certainly look like they might be worth the hype, having all the talent to do so.
