L.A. high school team with sons of Dwyane Wade and LeBron James holds NBA-style media days

Los Angeles-area Sierra Canyon High School's basketball team tours Dwyane Wade's son, Zaire, as a senior and LeBron James' son, Bronny, as a freshman. They also have 2 five-star recruits and a seven-foot-two-inch center from China — along with an NBA-style media day.

Why it matters: High school basketball teams don't normally hold media days. Then again, the children of NBA legends don't normally team up in high school — so nothing about this is normal.

  • Arash Markazi of the L.A. Times called Sierra Canyon High "Los Angeles' third-most interesting basketball team" after the Lakers and Clippers.

The big picture: Just like in the NBA, there are now "super teams" in high school. And, just like in the NBA, the best high school players have large social followings and function as their own brands/media companies.
