Published Add your comment

LeBron James was a house hold name across the nation before he had even graduated from high school - appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated when still an underclassman.

And now his son, LeBron Jr, has followed his old man to young stardom courtesy of a highlights reel (which can be seen at the bottom of this article) showcasing the 4th grader's insane skills.

LeBron James himself, playing the role of proud father, alerted the world to the video after tweeting out a message praising his son.

Taking part in the 2014 Ronald Searles Holiday Classic tournament in Houston this past weekend, LeBron James Jr was on fire - producing an array of shots, assists and dribbles that you can imagine his four-time NBA MVP father pulled off in his youth.

According to the Cleveland Cavaliers star's tweet at least it looks like his son, and his team the Gulf Coast Blue Chips, came away with first place in the tournament and you can understand why after watching the video clip.

Skills on show

As the son of one of the greatest players to play in the NBA in recent years it is almost inevitable that LeBron Jr will have plenty of college scouts keeping tabs on him as he grows up. 

And judging by this latest highlights reel it doesn't look like he will disappoint them either. From expertly weighted lay-up shots to precise dribbles, LBJ Jr already looks like a one man (boy) game-winning machine. But it is his vision, evidenced in the video by an array of smart passes, that is perhaps most astounding for someone so young.

Plenty of evidence

LeBron James Jr's latest attempt at taking over the internet isn't his first though. His proud dad has used social media in the past to showcase his kid's incredible talent with trick shots and snapshots of post-game celebrations a growing occurrence.

Already one of the top rated 4th graders in the nation, you better start believing the hype. All you have to do now is wait for the draft class of 2024 or so...
