Bronny James Reportedly Shows Shades Of Patrick Beverley, Davion Mitchell And Norris Cole


Discussions surrounding Bronny James haven’t stopped swirling since the 19-year-old athlete declared for the 2024 NBA Draft. Opinions may vary, but one common theme among these discussions is his defense.

While people may question his offensive skills, Bronny’s defense has become the main talking point, overshadowing discussions about his offensive potential. The consensus is that he stands out as a defender and holds the potential to excel in that aspect in the NBA.

NBA analyst Kevin O’Connor recently joined the conversation surrounding Bronny’s NBA potential. With Bronny’s defense a defining strength, O’Connor likened him to defensive guards like Patrick Beverley, Davion Mitchell and Norris Cole.

Per The Ringer:


“Instead, James projects as more of a disrupter,” Kevin O’Connor wrote. “Comparisons that came up in these conversations include Patrick Beverley, Davion Mitchell, and Norris Cole. Beverley has had the longest career of the three because he’s the best shooter (37 percent from 3 in his career). Mitchell has yet to figure out his shot with the Kings, while Cole won two titles with LeBron [James] in Miami before flaming out, in part because his shot never developed. But all three of them were respectable defenders. Bronny will have to follow in their footsteps to catch on with a winning team.”
