In his second college basketball start for the USC Trojans, the 19-year-old showcased an impressive performance despite the team's loss to No. 12 Arizona on Wednesday night.

This marked a significant improvement from his first scoreless start against Colorado on Saturday, as he delivered 11 points, six assists, and five rebounds against the Wildcats.

Though Caleb Love led Arizona to an 82-67 victory with 20 points and five assists, Bronny's solid performance indicated that he's starting to find his groove on the court, earning recognition and optimism from the basketball world.

While Bronny was making moves on the court, his dad, LeBron, was handling business for the Los Angeles Lakers.

After leading LA to a sure victory over the Dallas Mavericks during USC's tipoff against Arizona, LeBron quickly shifted his attention to his son's game.

In a post-game interview with reporters, he humorously tried to answer questions while passionately watching Bronny play, shouting "shoot" multiple times.

Though he repeatedly apologized for losing focus on questions, LeBron unabashedly embraced his role as a dad first and an NBA star second.

Bronny James will be back on the court on Saturday against Arizona State at 2 PM EST.
