LeBron James Jr is only nine years old, but already he's causing quite a stir in the basketball world.

His father is one of the best NBA players of all time - and judging by this latest video, Lebron Jr looks set to follow in his dad's footsteps.

The youngster is seen confidently dribbling with the ball before darting through two opponents and lifting the ball perfectly into the net.

Proud dad, Lebron Sr, posted the Instagram video of his son in action with the caption: "Bronny went for 25-8-8 tonight. He getting better and better. Couple euro steps looking like @dwyanewade and what I like most is his unselfishness #HeGotNext #StriveForGreatness"

The post has so far attracted almost 150,000 likes, along with a long list of comments from people praising his impressive, natural technique.

Who knows, maybe even father and son will play in a match together in the future?

LeBron Sr turns 29 next month and will soon be entering his fourth year with Miami Heat.
