Bronny James isn’t the generational prospect his father was but he’s seen his star grow in recent months, with ESPN even projecting him as a top-10 pick in the 2024 Draft. There’s a lot to play out between now and then, but it would move LeBron one step closer to his goal if that came to …read more
