Like father, like son. LeBron James Jnr, the eldest son of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, may be only nine-years-old but already knows what it is like to taste success on the basketball court.

Late last year, LeBron Snr posted a video on Instagram showing his boy strutting his stuff with his team, the Miami City Ballers, and compared Jnr to Heat teammate Dwayne Wade.

Now the four-time NBA MVP has followed that up by putting out a picture of his son and his teammates after MCB won an Amateur Athletic Union tournament.

LeBron had this message to accompany the pic: "Can't forget to S/O my oldest son and he's hoop sqad [sic] MCB on winning the championship in their AAU tourney today. Congrats kids. #ProudPops #JamesGang #WinnersInThisCrew."

Snr, meanwhile, had reason to celebrate himself as the Heat won on the road at the New York Knicks on Saturday, himself scoring 30 points to the 26 by rival Carmelo Anthony.

The Heat got the win by 106-91 and now have a record for the season of 33-13, while up next for the reigning two-time champions will be a game with the Detroit Pistons at the American Airlines arena on Monday night.
