In a shocking turn of events, LeBron James Jr., son of LeBron James, son of Delonte West, has committed to play basketball at Wash. U.

Bronny, who is currently 14 years old, is the top ranked prospect in his class. He committed to Wash. U shortly after a trip to Wash. U. He committed during a joint press conference between himself and his father.

During the press conference, he said he was “excited to be a Grizzly or a Knick or whatever.” When asked about what he brings to the team, he simply responded, “talent.” For his part, LeBron James Sr. told the press that he was proud of his son and offered praised to Bronny’s future teammates.

“This Nolan kid is really good. I loved what he did with the Batman franchise.” James Sr. said. “I love that these are effort guys. Really gym rats. They do what they can with what they have and that’s all you can ask for, you know?”

Amongst the team, there were mixed responses to the Decision.

“I worry that he will throw off the flow of the team.” one sophomore guard said in an interview he thought was off the record. “We have a good thing going where I score the ball then other people do everything else. I worry that he’ll score the ball too then we might have an issue.”

Other teammates were more optimistic.

“What’s he going to do? Take my minutes?” an outgoing senior center said. “I don’t have a problem with it. I just ask for free tickets when he’s a millionaire.”

Director Azama didn’t respond to our request for comment, but he was recently seen dining with LeBron James Sr. in a classy St. Louis restaurant.

The announcement comes on the heels of a board meeting where members expressed embarrassment about Wash. U not being implicated in the college admission scandal. Mark Wrongton was seen smiling smugly and saying softly to himself, “boys… we got him.” He then went and purchased a new three-piece suit with a mysterious duffle bag of money.
