The Los Angeles Lakers’ No. 55 overall pick, Bronny James, fell short of proving the Lakers’ choice right in his debut game. However, his father, LeBron James, defended his son by emphasizing Bronny’s mental toughness and athleticism.

Fans eagerly anticipated a stronger performance from Bronny in his second game but were left disappointed again.

In his second NBA Summer League game, Bronny recorded 3 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists as the Lakers lost 80-76. He missed his only three-point attempt and went 1-for-2 from the free-throw line.

Fans quickly lost their patience with the 19-year-old after witnessing his consecutive underwhelming performances.

Bronny’s stats became the focal point of criticism, raising doubts about his future in the league.

As expected, many fans did not hesitate to criticize LeBron James and Bronny’s contracts.

They accuse him of using his influence to secure Bronny’s place in the league rather than relying on Bronny’s athletic abilities.

Dalton Knecht’s Performance Adds Woes for Bronny James

While Bronny James had an underwhelming outing in his second game, the Lakers’ 17th pick in the NBA Draft, Dalton Knecht, proved why he was considered a ‘steal.’ Knecht recorded 20 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, and 7-for-18 from the field against the Miami Heat.

Knecht’s first-half stats were particularly notable: He scored 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 out of 4 three-point attempts.

This strong showing proved the gap between Knecht’s success and Bronny’s struggles in both games.

The Lakers received widespread praise for drafting Knecht, whom many believed should have been a top-10 pick.

His selection was hailed as the “best steal” of the draft, and even sports analyst Stephen A.

Smith expressed his excitement over the Lakers’ choice.

While Bronny’s performances have been disappointing, Knecht continues to validate the Lakers’ decision.
