LeBron goes wild as his 15-year-old high school basketball player son Bronny James scores wins MVP

This the moment proud dad Lebron James had to be held back on the sidelines of his son Bronny’s high school basketball game before he went home with the MVP trophy.

The legendary player is seen jumping up and down yelling tips and encouragement from his court-side seat as California‘s Sierra Canyon Trailblazers took a first-half lead against his alma mater, the St. Vincent-St. Mary Irish on Saturday. 

The 15-year-old’s 15 points, 7-of-10 from the field finish plus a clutch bucket by the end of the 59-56 game won him most valuable player in front of 13,000 people at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

With a timeout, James walked halfway on to the court, calling, ‘Let’s go! Let’s go!’ and moments before the game ended Bronny stole an inbounds pass and led them to victory in the NBA legend’s home city of Akron.

‘Last night was such a surreal feeling for me!,’ LeBron, 34, began in a Sunday morning Instagram post showing images from the game. 

‘For @Bronny to play the best game of his young high school career so far, make the biggest play of the game and to walk away winning the MVP in his/our home state and his family and friends was a story book moment.’

The elder James led the Irish to three state titles in four years, bringing their games to the airwaves of ESPN airwaves and the pages of Sports Illustrated. 

The NBA star said his son is still being coached by his mentor, ‘father figure, guy who coached and helped guide me throughout my childhood both on and off the floor Coach Dru Joyce II’.

He attended the game with his wife, daughter, mother, sister-in-law, father-in-law, cousins, plus other family and friends. 

Joining him court-side was his wife, Savannah, childhood friend and business partner Maverick Carter, and former Irish teammate Romeo Travis, who cheered his alma mater but shouted as Bronny James drove down the court, ‘Here we go young King!’

LeBron took a private plane from Miami to watch his son play high school ball live for the first time, but the game was about more than family by blood.

James and Dwyane Wade decided months ago that they would have their sons pair up at Sierra Canyon – just as they did in Miami from 2010 through 2014, winning two championships together with the Miami Heat. 

Now their kids are chasing a title, although Wade’s son Zaire was injured and did not play Saturday.

LeBron has said his only regret so far being that his schedule with the Los Angeles Lakers takes him away from Trailblazers’ games. He missed his younger son Bryce’s first game recently as he left for Orlando, and misses his daughter’s gymnastics.

He started the night having dinner with his St. Vincent-St. Mary teammates who were the biggest thing in high school basketball 17 years ago. 

LeBron also shared a snap including his best friends who he grew up with and still has ‘an unbelievable relationship with’ to this day. 

‘We dub ourselves the “Fab Five”,’ LeBron told his 53.8 million followers.

His best friend, Willie McGee, is the athletic director. 

More than 400 credentialed media encircled the court to capture every pass, every dribble, every shot of the King’s firstborn, who would likely have worn an Irish jersey had the family not moved west so James could shine for the Los Angeles Lakers. 

The father added on Instagram: ‘So so so eerie but I know it was SPECIAL and meant the world to me to be there in attendance! 

‘Can’t even lie I was nervous as hell for him but damn he was poised and controlled. WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE NIGHT it was! Thank you man above.’

‘My son is in the ninth grade; he’s a kid,’ LeBron James said. ‘We’re not even thinking about anything besides how he can be a great teammate, how he can be a great son, how he can be a great brother to his sister and little brother, how he can continue to be a great kid.’
