LeBron James has got a new mini-me, but he's not as short as you expect.

Hailing from Akron, Ohio - just like King James - is 12 year old basketball phenom Shemar Morrow.

The sixth grader measures in at a mind-boggling 6 feet 2 inches and has become an internet sensation following the uploading of a video to Youtube of the young sensation dunking.

As you can see in the clip above, the youngster - who is naturally playing center given his massive height advantage against his peers - collects a steal perfectly and goes coast to coast before nailing a two-handed jam which caused one spectator to erupt with a cry of "oh my goodness!"

The game in question was from a National Youth Basketball League session in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night, where 'Baby LeBron' was playing with a team run by rapper, actor and entrepreneur Master P called P. Miller Ballers.

If that wasn't enough, Morrow finished the game with a mammoth 53 points on his teams way to winning the competition.

His coach 'P' knows a thing or two about the NBA and the basketball life. During his successful career Miller also held contracts with the Charlotte Bobcats and Toronto Raptors, while actually playing in the ABA and CBA.

Morrow is currently the number one overall prospect in the class of 2020 and if he keeps up this play then it looks like he won't be moving from the top spot for quite a while.
