Bronny James and Sierra Canyon versus D.J. Wagner and Camden is a high school basketball clash in the making for two decades



Article Summary:

ESPN 60 prospects Bronny James and D.J. Wagner are set to meet on the hardwood for the first time in their high school basketball careers on Saturday, but the connection between the young players extends beyond the court. His early accomplishments include being the first junior to be named Gatorade’s national player of the year and scoring 31 points in his national TV debut against then-No. 1 Oak Hill Academy in 2002.

Dajuan Wagner Sr., nicknamed “The Messiah,” was selected in the first round by the Cavs in 2002, one year before LeBron.

Despite their limited playing time together, Wagner Sr. is confident that James’ career could have played out a lot differently had they been able to share the court for a substantial period of time. “Who knows what could have happened down the line? He could have been up there in the scoring ranks because that’s what he did. He was a scorer.”

In a July 2021 post on Instagram, LeBron called fellow former Cavalier Wagner one of the “Most talented teammates” he’s ever played with.
