NBA star LeBron James is known for using his Instagram account to highlight music he likes, behind-the-scenes basketball moments and adorable memories with his wife and three children. The Los Angeles Lakers star recently used the network to welcome his eldest son LeBron James Jr., often known as Bronny, to social media. On Monday, James informed his nearly 50 millions followers that his 14-year-old officially had his own IG page.
“Everyone welcome the heir to the throne to IG @real_bronny! Told him 3 years ago the summer of 2019 I’d let you him get one. Damn time flies,” he beamed. Issuing a warning to trolls, the former NBA champion continued, “Hahaha! Anyways let’s get Bronny! P.S. Keep y’all hating a***s off his comments or we pulling up‼️”
The high school freshman celebrated his first IG post with a pic of him on a basketball court. The teen simply captioned the post, “Hey IG.”
One day after his dad’s massive shout out, Bronny amassed over 1.1 million followers.
