‘I Probably Got the 3rd Best Jump Shot in the Household’: LeBron James Talks Up Sons’ Excellent Hoops Technique

If you’ve been watching the Los Angeles Lakers this season, then you know that LeBron James‘ three-point shot looks better than in years past, and he seems to have found his sweet spot at the top of the key.

But according to the 34-year-old, he’s far from the best shooter in his household, which he tweeted on Saturday.

At the time, the future Hall of Famer responded to ESPN’s national recruiting director and NBA draft analyst Paul Biancardi, who praised his son Bronny James‘ jumper.

On Saturday, the 15-year-old’s high school team Sierra Canyon played Millennium High and beat them 76-66.

“I hope LeBron is not going to get mad at me, but I think Bronny’s jump shot is a little bit better,” said Biancardi during the game, after Bronny hit a 3-pointer from the corner.

James responded to the comment later that same day on Twitter, and he wasn’t offended at all. In fact, he totally agreed with the analyst.

The 6-foot-9 small forward also praised his other son, Bryce Maximus James, and said the 12-year-old jumper is also top-notch.

“Can’t ever be mad at the facts!!! “Flame thrower he has!” tweeted James. “And by the way I probably got the 3rd best jump shot in the household. Bryce Maximus got a cooker too!”

In the comments, James’ followers said they love how he supports his two boys.

“That’s what it’s all about,” one person tweeted. “I hope no parent wants their kid worse than them. Put them in a position where they can be greater than you!! Respect greatness.”

“Great parenting,” wrote someone else. “In every walk of life parents want their children to have more, experience more and be better. Lebron has provided the opportunities for his children to do all that and more. Job well done.”

“I love the way u are with your kids, it’s really precious to watch,” a third fan wrote.
