Adin Ross teamed up with Bronny James relatively early in his streaming career, giving Ross’ stardom a boost. LeBron James Jr., also known as Bronny James to his friends, is a gaming legend in his own right. As explained by The Washington Post, after being picked up by FaZe Clan, Bronny expanded his fanbase, making the jump from the world of basketball to gaming.
Ross and Bronny met playing “NBA 2K,” and formed a fast friendship. Ross talked about his relationship with Bronny in an interview with No Jumper, explaining that he credits James with keeping him down to earth. “That’s like my brother,” Ross said of James. “He’s the reason why I feel like I haven’t developed, kind of like, a crazy ego, because he’s like the most humble famous person I’ve ever met in my life.” Ross shared that the two met at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when a large people were invested in streaming games. After being in a group with James, Ross and James “branched out” and began playing together. Through his friendship with James, Ross also grew his following, especially after Bronny got his dad to speak to Ross on camera.
While some fans still can’t figure out why Bronny couldn’t answer his dad’s questions about gaming chairs, there’s no doubt that the young superstar has his own dedicated following and has helped Ross build his brand.
