You might not expect these Bronny James comparisons but they're perfect

0

Bronny James is settled into the NBA Draft Combine process at this point.

The 19-year-old has gone through measurements
, drills
and a 5-on-5 scrimmage
that featured a handful of the top college prospects. Now, he’s taking part in the interview portion.

This is a crucial aspect of the combine for any prospect but especially for James, who is trying to prove he belongs among the bunch after an underwhelming freshman season. He’s also trying to show teams he’s more than just the son of an NBA great.

Through this, James has compared himself to three current NBA players, each at different stages of their career but all with a similar style.

James’ best attribute on the court is currently his defense.

He’s adept at getting over and through screens while maintaining his level in a defensive stance. There aren’t many lapses when guarding off ball, which is a plus for his attentiveness.

The USC freshman measured in at 6-foot, 1.5 inches and 210.4 pounds with a 6-foot, 7.25-inch wingspan. He’s on the smaller side in terms of height, but he’s got strength and length to make up for it.

James is aware of all this, and he compared himself to Jrue Holiday, Davion Mitchell and Derrick White.

Here’s how James compares to each of them physically:

Each of the three NBA guards has a strong defensive foundation and impacts the game beyond scoring. It lines up well with how James’ style at this point — a stocky defensive guard who struggles on the offensive end.

White and Holiday are capable of making a big impact offensively while Mitchell is more of a specialist. The 6-0 Kings guard is listed at 202 pounds with a 6-foot, 4.25-inch wingspan. James has him beat slightly in all the measurements.

James’ interviews were much more than just an NBA comparison session. The 19-year-old discussed his status as a draft prospect and how he’s trying to separate himself from his father to prove his own worth.

He believes NBA front offices will draft him based on his own merit, not the possibility of landing his father in free agency.

“This is a serious business,” James said. “I don’t feel like there would be a thought of, ‘I’m just drafting this kid just because I’m going to get his dad.’ I don’t think a GM would really allow that.”

James was also asked about his dad’s dream of playing together in the NBA, to which James said he doesn’t think about it much. It was never his dream, but his dad mentioned the possibility a few times.

“My dream has always just been to put my name out, make a name for myself and get to the NBA, which is everyone’s end goal that’s here,” James said. “I never thought about just playing with my dad.”

The NBA Combine ends on Sunday, May 19, so James will undergo more interviews, scrimmages and drills in the coming days.
