Panthers Punter Johnny Hekker Makes Fun Of Bronny James’ Basketball Skills At NBA Combine

Bronny James has been under a microscope ever since his father proclaimed that his dream would be to play with his son one day in the NBA.

Well, Bronny is in the NBA Draft and while attending the NBA Draft Combine, everyone was tuning in to see whether or not he is good enough to be drafted in next month’s 2024 NBA Draft.

After video circulated of Bronny’s impressive shooting performance at the NBA Combine on Monday, Carolina Panthers punter Johnny Hekker took to social media with a jab at the son of the all-time great.

“Bro’s catch and release is 2-3 business days,” the Super Bowl champ tweeted.


Many people are skeptical that Bronny James will have any success as a professional basketball player in the NBA after a subpar season at the University of California. Many believe that a team would only draft him to try and lure his father, LeBron James, to their team.

It seems like Johnny Hekker is one of those people.
