Early life and career

Bronny was born on October 6, 2004 to NBA All-Star player LeBron James, age 19, and his longtime girlfriend (now wife) Savannah Brinson. James was raised by both of his parents.

As a child, James played several sports including basketball and soccer, but his father did not allow him to play American football or ice hockey over safety concerns. In 2014, James was featuring in basketball highlight reels that drew national attention. In February 2018, James guided Old Trail School in Bath Township, Summit County, Ohio, where he attended middle school, to an Independent School League tournament win.

James competed with various Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball teams before high school. At age nine, he played for the Miami City Ballers at a fourth grade AAU tournament while being observed by Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari. In June 2015, James led the Gulf Coast Blue Chips AAU team to a fourth grade championship at the League Dallas/Hype Sports Summer Jam.

In March 2018, he helped the North Coast Blue Chips capture a John Lucas All-Star Weekend title in Houston. On April 2, 2018, his Blue Chips finished undefeated and claimed the under-13 championship at the NY2LA Swish 'N Dish tournament in Wisconsin. In June, James represented the same team at the Jr. National Basketball Association (NBA) Midwest Championships against ninth grade opponents and advanced to the quarterfinals. In April 2019, despite being younger than most of the competition at age 14, he joined AAU team Strive for Greatness at the under-16 Nike EYBL in Indianapolis, where he faced a number of highly coveted recruits and drew praise from scouts.

In August 6, 2018, James enrolled at Crossroads School, a private K–12 school in Santa Monica, California. California state rules prevented him from immediately joining the varsity team because he was in eighth grade. On December 3, 2018, in his first game for the school, James scored 27 points in a 61–48 victory over Culver City Middle School.
