The Los Angeles Lakers drafting Bronny James out of USC is unquestionably one of the best human interest stories in the NBA this year.

After all, it will pair the young man with his legendary father, LeBron James, and will electrify fans and draw massive media attention.

However, some critics feel the move smacks of nepotism and favoritism toward the team’s star and is not reflective of the younger James’ accomplishments.

New Lakers head coach J.J. Redick addressed this concern recently, saying that the young man deserved to be drafted by the team with the No. 55 pick.

Fox Sports Radio’s Doug Gottlieb explained his take on Redick’s comments on James.

“When you look America in the eye and say Bronny James has earned being on the Lakers, anybody who has any sort of brain no longer takes you seriously.”

Gottlieb acknowledged that many things can be said about Bronny James, including that his best basketball is still ahead of him and that he’s a good player and human being.

Despite the excitement of the draft selection and historic pairing of father and son, these rumblings remain and will likely only subside once the younger James accomplishes good things on the NBA hardcourt.

At the moment, Bronny is headed to the summer league to hone his skills and take a giant leap forward in competition.

When he first steps onto the court with his famous father, the arena will explode with excitement.

However, every move will be scrutinized, and it is important that Bronny James is coached and utilized well to silence critics.

How Redick handles him will go far in smoothing his transition into the NBA.
