The Sierra Canyon (CA) game against Paul VI Catholic (Va) in the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, (MA), was halted Monday when a fan threw something, possibly a piece of candy, at Bronny James, son of LeBron James.
LeBron James was among the 4,00 fans at Springfield College to watch the game. Forty cops were scattered around the gym and outside the small arena for additional security.
LeBron came alone Monday and took his reserved seat flanked by five security guards on the baseline nearest the Sierra Canyon bench.
Bronny only played 13 minutes and took two shots, missing them both. Early in the second half, a fan threw what appeared to be a piece of candy at Bronny from the stands, causing the ref to stop the game and call security over to kick the fan out. LeBron sat 50 feet away shaking his head as any father would do.
LeBron James tweeted after the game about the incident.
Bronny James was held scoreless and Zaire Wade, son of Dwyane Wade, did not play, as Sierra Canyon lost, 70-62.
