Bryce James impresses with advanced skills and intelligence on the basketball court hinting at surpassing his father LeBron's legacy.

When discussing the future of basketball it is impossible not to mention Bryce James. 

As LeBron James' career approaches its twilight all eyes are turning to his youngest son who is already making waves in high school basketball. 

Bryce's recent performances suggest he may not only follow in his father's legendary footsteps but could potentially surpass them.

Bryce James, currently lighting up the court at Sierra Canyon School, has been showcasing skills that hint at a burgeoning basketball prodigy. 

His gameplay is characterized by intelligence, agility, and a remarkable scoring ability that echoes his father's, yet brings a fresh flair to the game.

"Very intelligent too," praised Arenas, editor of Podcast P, reflecting on Bryce's gameplay in a recent interview. 

"Like we'll do like pick and roll splits. And I'm like I'm gonna just mix it up. No matter what we did, he read it perfect every single time. He probably might be the smartest one out of 'em."

Despite being just a high school athlete, Bryce's on-court strategies and decision-making have caught the attention of scouts and fans alike. 

In a recent game against Moorpark High School, Bryce scored 6 points, dished out 3 assists, and nabbed 2 steals, leading Sierra Canyon to an 86-24 victory. His defensive prowess was also on display with a crucial blocked shot.

Basketball analysts are particularly excited about Bryce's shooting mechanics. 

"Bryce has this soft touch with a good release, not to mention his finesse in pull-ups and threes," noted one scout. His advanced left-handed dominance and the physicality he brings to the game are reminiscent of LeBron, yet distinctly Bryce.

As per recent reports by On3, Bryce is likely to join the Ohio State Buckeyes once he transitions to the collegiate level. 

His performance in AAU contests has been stellar, notably making all his free throws in a game that led his team to victory. 

Bryce's physical attributes also stand out as at 6 feet 6 inches, he possesses a commanding presence on the court. This, combined with his ability to score from various positions, makes him a formidable player.

Two years ago, on MLK Day, Bryce scored 21 points in a game that had many critics applauding his entry into the spotlight. 

His jump shots, athletic prowess, and ability to dominate the game have led some to believe that he might even outgrow his father, who stands 6 feet 9 inches tall.

As LeBron's career winds down, the basketball community is keenly watching Bryce, speculating on his potential to create a new dynasty. 

With each game, Bryce James is not just living up to the James family legacy; he is setting the stage for his own, possibly more illustrious chapter in basketball history.
