All it took was a carousel of photographs posted on Instagram to trigger all-important comparisons. This also happens when the post is launched by a star of the caliber of LeBron James who among his many accomplishments on the playing field and in business can also boast a fan base of 127 million followers on IG alone.
LBJ posted a photo of his youngest son, Bryce Maximus, intent on dunking by first bringing the ball behind his head, a now-iconic movement of Daddy LeBron. The King, then included a picture of him as a young man just as he was making this gesture and finally a picture of him hugging his second son.
Fans went wild and the post went viral, after being picked up by so many American news outlets as well. In fact, the similarity between the two shots is uncanny, and it would almost seem like looking at the same person in two different photos. LeBron also insisted on this aspect, writing: “My twin, my ace, my boyfriend.”
For a few years already there have been so many comparisons between LeBron and his oldest son, Bronny, a class of 2004 who at one of the most prestigious high schools in the United States, Sierra Canyon, is showing off some very interesting things. Now the spotlight is also shining on Bryce who, although three years younger, is already taller than his brother (over 190 cm) and on a physical level should have, when he grows up, a very similar base to his father. He also attends Sierra and shows great promise.
