Bronny James Will Wear Father's Number 6 At USC

Bronny James Will Wear Father’s Number 6 At USC

Bronny James was named after his NBA father, LeBron James and he has the distinction of having his high school career being scrutinized just like his father’s was. After scoring NIL deals with companies his father is associated with (Nike and Beats By Dre) and taking up the same sport, he has decided to wear the same number his father currently wears, number 8.

Last month, Bronny announced that he will be attending USC (University of Southern California) and the school posted a photo of him in his uniform sporting the number 8.

 

Sports Illustrated reported the meaning LeBron gave for wearing his beloved six. The future Hall of Famer wore No. 23 for the Cavaliers, but was because of his love for his idol, Micheal Jordan, who wore that number when he played with the Chicago Bulls. Yet, when he went to the Miami Heat in for the 2010–11 season, he decided to switch to No. 6.

“Why I wear number six, there’s multiple reasons,” James said, “One, because 23 is one of my favorite numbers as well so two times three is six. … Also, my first son was born on October 6. … My youngest son [Bryce] is June 14th, the sixth month of the year. Six has always been with me ever since I was a kid for some reason especially when it relates with my family.”

Bronny is a 6-foot-3 guard who played basketball for Sierra Canyon School in California and is considered one of the top guards in the country based on an ESPN 100 placing him at No. 19 for the class of 2023.

Shortly after Bronny committed to joining the basketball team at the University of Southern California, another NBA legend’s son, DJ Rodman (Son of Dennis Rodman) took to Instagram to announce that he would be heading to USC to also play basketball.
