LeBron James is the proud father of a high school graduate.

The NBA's all-time scoring leader posted a video of son Bronny graduating from Sierra Canyon High School in southern California earlier this week.

"PROUD!!!!" James wrote on Instagram with emotional face and praying hands emoji. "CONGRATULATIONS & LOVE YOU KID!"

The post included still photos of Bronny, a family photo of the five Jameses and a video of Bronny gearing up for the ceremony that included LeBron holding a diploma.

Bronny played basketball at the high school and has committed to playing at the University of Southern California.

Oregon and Ohio State were the two other finalists for the NBA superstar's son.

Oregon seemed like an outside possibility. USC is near his current home, and Ohio State is located in the state he was born.

His father has long supported the Buckeyes having been born and raised in Akron and spending the majority of his illustrious career with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the only NBA team in the state. James now plays for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bronny is the 33rd ranked player in his class, and he was named a McDonald's All-American earlier this year.

USC also has a commitment from No. 1 prospect and five-star point guard Isaiah Collier out of Wheeler High School in Marietta, Georgia.

During Bronny's tenure at Sierra Canyon High School, the school went 95-22. He averaged 14.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 steals per game his senior season.
