LeBron James is playing in his fifth consecutive NBA Finals this week, trying to bring his beloved Northeast Ohio the championship its lacked for the past 50 years. This is a huge moment for The King, and it’s safe to say his family understands the stakes.
But just because Dad is busy hardly means basketball stops for LeBron James, Jr. The 10-year-old was in Dallas recently playing with the fourth-grade Gulf Coast Blue Chips, exhibiting the natural court sense and playmaking flair that’s helped make his namesake an all-time great. Unsurprisingly, little LeBron’s team won the tournament’s title, too.
Is a growth spurt next for “Bronnie?” We sure hope so. Someone has to pick up the mantle of the elder James as the 30-year-old’s career eventually comes to a close, after all. Who better to do it than his mini-me?
