LeBron James to attend Bronny's game in Ohio on Lakers' off day
With the GermainCars.com Ohio Play by Play Classic approaching this weekend, ESPN's Dave McMenamin confirms that LeBron James will be in attendance to watch his son Bronny and Sierra Canyon take on LeBron's alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary and previews the game in an article on ESPN.com:

"Obviously, everybody knows that St. Vincent-St. Mary is when people started to recognize me from a national standpoint," James told ESPN this week. "And my son is about to play a high school game versus my alma mater in our home state. The only thing that would have been more emotional is if my son was playing St. Vincent-St. Mary at the LeBron James Arena in Akron. That would have been, like -- that would have been too much."

The game, officially dubbed the GermainCars.com Ohio Play-by-Play Classic (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN3 and the ESPN App), is being organized by Jeremy Treatman, the president of the Play-by-Play Classics.

Treatman, who was an assistant coach on Kobe Bryant's Lower Merion High School basketball team, recognized the interest in emerging prep stars nearly two decades ago and began hosting showcase games around the country to show off the nation's top talent.

One of those games involved James' St. Vincent-St. Mary squad flying to Philadelphia to face Strawberry Mansion in 2002.

"Probably one of the most exciting things that ever happened to me," Treatman told ESPN, reflecting on the chance to stage spotlight opportunities for both James and now James' son.
