Former Clippers star Baron Davis has endorsed the decision by Bronny James to take his chances with the NBA Draft. According to him, LeBron James’ kid could excel as a professional player rather than in college basketball.

Davis shared his views with TMZ Sports at LAX, shortly after Bronny announced his intention to explore NBA opportunities while keeping the option to return to school open.

He explained that despite a quiet freshman season at USC, Bronny could still be picked up by a professional organization, as the pro game might suit him better.

“It’s more free-flowing,” Davis said of NBA action. “You’re not coached every moment. You’re not playing zone all the time. From what I’ve seen from Bronny, he’s an athletic, smart point guard. He can shoot the ball. So, if I was him, I’d try my hand too.”

He mentioned that if the young James’ NBA venture doesn’t pan out, he can always return to college basketball and potentially aim for the NBA in 2025.

Davis expressed strong support for Bronny, hoping for the Lakers to draft the former McDonald’s All-American when he eventually joins the league.

“I want to see Bronny and LeBron play on the same team,” he said. “That’ll be hard. Like Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr.”

“That s*** would be hella hard!”
