Bleacher Report Compares Bronny James to Miles McBride



Bronny James, the son of LeBron, was the talk of the NBA draft combine last week as the USC guard is beginning a professional career. James averaged 4.8 points as a freshman for the Trojans but reports state that NBA teams are willing to draft Bronny in order to possibly land LeBron.

As Bronny’s draft process will be monitored throughout the next month, Bleacher Report compared James to five NBA players based off of his play style. Miles McBride, former Mountaineer guard, was one of the five professional players compared to the NBA draft prospect.

Based on Bleacher Report’s comparison, it sees McBride as a three-and-d combo. McBride is listed as a 6-foot-1 guard while James was measured in at the combine at 6-foot-1 as well. Bleacher Report sees the possibility of James becoming that undersized guard that can knock down shots, like McBride’s role as increased for the New York Knicks.

Bronny was also compared to Quentin Grimes, Gary Harris, De’Anthony Melton and Davion Mitchell.

McBride wrapped up his third NBA season for the Knicks on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Indiana Pacers in game seven. McBride saw increased play, including starting during the playoffs. McBride averaged 8.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists through 68 regular season games.
