Like father, like son: Bronny James (18) makes NBA star LeBron James proud by jumping over brother in dunk contest

That is an annual competition between the greatest basketball talents who will make the transition from high school to university later this year. Bronny James was one of them, as was his father 20 years ago (although LeBron skipped college and went pro straight away).

James is about the only top player who has not yet chosen a team for next season. Not much was expected of him at the beginning of his career, but in the meantime he is among many scouts in the top 20 of the NBA Draft of 2024. For example, he could go to UConn, one of the better-known basketball universities. Ohio State and South Carolina are also showing interest.

Although his Team West lost 106-109, Bronny showed in Houston, Texas. He hit five of his eight three-point attempts to finish the game with 15 points.

The day before, James also participated in the Powerade JamFest, the dunk contest. In addition, he dunked, among other things, about his brother Bryce, to the delight of dad LeBron. He eventually finished second, behind Sean Stewart.

Golden State beats New Orleans

Golden State secured an important win against New Orleans on Tuesday (local time) with a 120-109 win against New Orleans to directly qualify for the playoffs in the North American NBA professional basketball league.

The Warriors, putting up a poor first half, turned the tide after the break, led by Stephen Curry who recorded 39 points. Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson added 21 and 17 points respectively for the defending champions, who take their place back in the top six of the Western Conference, which directly qualifies for the playoffs.

Behind the Warriors, the Pelicans remain stuck in the play-in, the jump-off for the last two places in the playoffs for teams that finish between seventh and tenth place. New Orleans is eighth, just behind Minnesota and ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City, which could not pick up anything against Charlotte (134-137) at home.

In the top half of the standings, Memphis, which is already qualified for the playoffs, won for the seventh time in a row, this time against Orlando (113-108). The Grizzlies solidify their second place in the west behind Denver.

In the East, runner-up Boston missed a chance to catch up on first place after a 130-111 loss in Washington. Cleveland at number four went down 120-118 against Atlanta. The Hawks, meanwhile, have moved up to eighth and are back in the race for the top six, along with number nine Toronto, who defeated seventh-placed Miami 106-92.
