LeBron James and Rajon Rondo Step Up as Coaches for Bryce’s Team at Nike’s Peach Jam


LeBron James and Rajon Rondo are considered to be two of the smartest players to ever play in the NBA. Both have been known to analyze plays before they even happen, often helping their respective teams to victories.

On Wednesday night, the former LA Lakers teammates were on hand at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League where this happened:




James and Rondo coached Bryce James and the Strive for Greatness team against the Florida Rebels. Despite the basketball superstars’ presence, the Rebels won the game 72-67. SFG now holds a 1-1 record after winning against the Expressions on Monday.

The younger James and his teammates will have another game on Friday against the NH Lightning. It remains to be seen if the four-time MVP and his assistant coach will pull the same trick and coach Bryce’s team again.

LeBron James arrived just as both teams were warming up. He emerged into the gym without any fanfare and greeted some of the fans and parents on the sidelines. A few moments later, Rajon Rondo pulled up as well.



“King James” supporting his younger son Bryce James, is nothing new. He recently helped fund a multi-million gym for Campbell High after his son transferred there from Canyon High.

The NBA’s all-time leading scorer also often gives tips and instructions to his son when playing in high school games.

LeBron James will have a stacked LA Lakers team to lead next season

On several occasions last season, LeBron James subtly urged LA Lakers GM Rob Pelinka to improve the roster. After a horrible start, LeBron bemoaned the team’s lack of “lasers”.

After the LA Lakers were swept by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference finals, James told the media that he only plays for championships. The 20-year-veteran even hinted at possible retirement after the embarrassing loss.

GM Pelinka then went out and nailed the Lakers’ offseason. Pelinka could even win Executive of the Year after retaining Austin Reaves at a bargain price, along with D’Angelo Russell and Rui Hachimura. He also added Jaxson Hayes, Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince and Cam Reddish to the roster.


LeBron James will lead a team that has length, size, versatility and decent outside shooting. From one to five, the Lakers look loaded for next season. “King James” was so impressed with Pelinka’s work that he welcomed his new and old teammates via IG stories.

Barring any major injuries to James and Anthony Davis, the LA Lakers should be one of the heavy favorites to dethrone the Denver Nuggets next season.
