Bronny James is garnering plenty of attention at the 2024 NBA draft combine, as teams look to get a better look at the eldest son of one of the game's all-time greats, LeBron James.

When speaking to the media during his combine interviews, Bronny admitted that the amount of coverage he's received has been "a lot." James was asked by reporters about what current NBA players he thinks his own skill set is most comparable to, and he offered a trio of guards in response.

Bronny told reporters that he likens himself to guys such as Jrue Holiday, Davion Mitchell and Derrick White, and thinks he can affect winning in a similar fashion to how those three do, according toESPN's Jamal Collier.

Holiday and White are teammates on the Boston Celtics, and they make for one of the most aggressive and irritating backcourt tandems with their relentless defensive pressure. Both are capable shooters from outside and comfortable on the ball. Mitchell fits a similar billing for the Sacramento Kings, though he has a lesser role.

James entered the draft after his freshman season at USC, which was delayed after he went into cardiac arrest during a summer practice. After being cleared to play, he featured in 25 games for the Trojans and averaged 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
