Bronny James channels LeBron with emphatic chase-down block in USC debut
Bronny James had a winding path to his college basketball debut Sunday afternoon. Fortunately, he has been cleared to return to action after a scary offseason health scare and saw his first action with USC against Long Beach State.
It did not long for James to flash his athletic ability. He delivered a chase-down block in emphatic fashion, conjuring up images of LeBron’s many iconic blocks from behind a play.
Long Beach State was trying to operate a fastbreak after a USC turnover, but James tracked the play the entire way. After a bounce pass into the lane, James displayed impressive closing speed and elite hops to elevate for the block.

At halftime, James has a rebound, an assist and a block but missed on his lone field goal attempt with the Trojans holding a 45-30 lead. For now, it’s good to see him get his feet wet at the college level considering his health scare in the offseason.
James will be on a minutes restriction early on, but he’s already giving fans a glimpse of what he can do when on the court.
