As The athletic reported that the Lakers are considering signing Bronny James in the next NBA Draft, many skepticism and criticism was spreading in the NBA community. Bronny, despite his family background, may not be ready for the NBA, implying the choice was made to keep James.

Among the voices concerning the matter Doug Gottlieb made some comments regarding the case. "I think it's a risky move for Bronny James. I just do," Gottlieb explained on the Doug Gottlieb Show

Reasons Why Bronny James is "pressured" to an NBA draft for the Lakers

Most critics agree that Bronny James has not reached the NBA's necessary level yet to join the Lakers
As a freshman playing for the USC Trojans, Bronny has been averaging 5.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists. His health challenges from the past summer should be taken into account, strengthening the case for him to remain with the Trojans for a while longer.

When looking at Bronny and his father, LeBron James, it's clear they are quite different. Back in 2003, LeBron James made quite an entrance into the league, showcasing impressive stats from his senior year in high school. He exceeded all expectations and rose to stardom


Bronny, however, fails to measure up to some of the prospects on his own team. Isiah Collier, a freshman point guard at USC, is a highly regarded prospect in ESPN's mock draft. He is currently averaging 15.7 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists. 
LeBron James may be eager to have his son join him in the NBA spotlight, but it could be wise to hold off for a little longer.
