LeBron son signed with Nike even before his debut
Following his father, LeBron James (LA Lakers), his eldest son, Bronny James, will join Nike. He signed a contract with Nike even before his professional debut.
Nick DePola, a sports brand blogger and contributor to “ESPN,” posted a list of five student players Nike signed on its SNS on the 11th (Korea Standard Time). No specific terms of the contract were mentioned.
The first player mentioned was Bronny James, the eldest son of ‘King’ LeBron James. Born in October 2004, when LeBron James was about to make his NBA debut, Bronny James is a guard attending Sierra Cannon High School. Although he is not as good as his father, who was classified as a super-high-level early on, Bronny James is also considered to have enough potential to challenge the NBA.
It’s a battle of father and son. LeBron James also signed a seven-year, $90 million contract with Nike in 2003 ahead of his NBA debut. LeBron James became a superstar as expected after his debut, drawing attention by signing a lifelong contract with Nike in 2015. It was Nike’s first lifetime contract with a particular player. Michael Jordan, the “basketball emperor,” is virtually a lifetime contract, but he has not officially signed a contract.
Bronny James, who was sponsored by Nike, said, “Nike in my memory has always been my family. “It really means a lot to me that I signed a contract with Nike to continue my relationship across the court and the community,” he said.
LeBron James, who still dominates the league, has often publicly expressed his desire to play for the same team as his son. “If I were to be on the NBA court with my son, it would be the best moment of my basketball life. To that end, I’m taking care of my body more.” It was a horse by LeBron James.안전놀이터
Bronny James is likely to participate in the 2024 NBA draft. This is why LeBron James, whose contract with the LA Lakers expires at the end of the 2022-2023 season, is not in a hurry to sign an extension. It remains to be seen whether James Boo, who is sponsored by Nike side by side, will be able to play in one team as desired.
Meanwhile, guard DJ Wagner from Camden High School, who is considered one of the biggest fish in the 2023 NBA draft, as well as female players Caitlin Clark, Haley Jones, and shareholder Watkins also signed contracts with Nike.
