Bronny James Tears Meniscus As Sierra Canyon’s “Top Class” Premieres on Amazon Prime

LeBron James’ blue-chip son Bronny James suffered what might be a season-ending injury when he tore his meniscus.

The injury, which happened roughly three weeks ago, is believed to be season-ending, one source said. But it might depend on the status of high school basketball in California, which has yet to permit indoor high school competition, including basketball and volleyball.

James said he tore his meniscus live on his Twitch channel while playing video games.

He’s ranked 19th nationally – regardless of position – and is the No. 4-rated combo guard.

So while we wait for his return, we can still enjoy the lights camera and action lifestyle of big-time high school basketball, which was at an all-time level prior to the recording of “Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers”, produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter.

Dreams of high school basketball have long been a part of American lore.  

But when you add the imagery of Bronny James, Zaire Wade and the Kentucky bound small forward BJ Boston, as well as Stanford bound Ziaire Williams, it’s obviously a whole new ball game.  

The six-part offering follows the Trail Blazers through the trials and tribulations inherent with being a talented teenager under the lights. 

With each subsequent episode, we see head coach Andre Chevalier trying to mold young minds and egos into a team that is strong enough to not only compete but dominate at a high level. Ranking high is nice but winning is even better.   

We’re introduced to the young Shy Odom, whose size belies the fact that he’s only 16 years old and far from home, and Amari Bailey, who’s trying to compete for shine amid a galaxy of stars. 

The series highlights every bump in the road and lays bare the hoops and dreams of precocious, hopeful and talented young men. 

The series premieres on Amazon Prime Friday, February 26.
