LeBron James confronts the announcer after he disrespected his son at an AAU Game


LeBron's eldest son, Bronny James, has already established himself as one of the brightest and most talented up-and-coming basketball players at just 16 years old. The young Bronny has all the talent in the world, as, of course, it runs in the family. Still, despite all the hype and support surrounding him, Bronny will have a tough road ahead of him, considering the expectations being put on his shoulders solely because of his last name.

LeBron James is the best basketball player of his generation, but his time is coming to an end, and the new generation is stepping into the scene. Bronny is expected to be in the NBA in a couple of years, and when he gets there, he will definitely face his share of doubters and critics, primarily because of his dad. But it seems the basketball world is starting to prepare him early.

During an AAU game, a minor incident occurred near the end of the game, which even led to LeBron stepping into the picture. With little over a minute to go in the game, Bronny's team was down seven. Bronny drove to the lane and drew a foul, which led to the play-by-play announcer in the gym saying something in the manner of Bronny getting that foul call because his dad is at the game.

Obviously, "The King" took offense to that, as he immediately went over to the scorers' table to share some choice words for the announcer before being escorted away by the referees and a few police officers. The crowd would greet it with large applause as the game went on. Even though Lebron gets a lot of criticism for his actions, he had every right in this example. 

A play-by-play announcer is supposed to call the baskets rather than say those types of things and tell his opinions on the game. To make it worse, as the broadcast commentators pointed out, Bronny was clearly fouled, so the narrative of him getting a call because of his dad got bashed. It's nice to see LeBron being so passionate and involved in his son's basketball career, as his help will be of enormous importance for Bronny to become the best he can be.
