LeBron James is one hell of a player, almost certainly the best of his generation and definitely in the running for the unofficial crown of best player of the 21st Century.

The Cleveland Cavaliers has four MVP awards, two Finals MVP wins, 11 All-Star selections, and nine All-NBA First Team nods to his name. 

And it seems that the talent James possesses has been transferred onto his children, with his eldest son - LeBron Jr - showing off some incredible ability for such a young age.

The 11-year-old has already amassed several highlight clips from his exceptional displays in AAU basketball, where he and his team have notched up several Championships and tournament wins already.

In fact, Mini-LeBron has been balling at such a high level for his age that he is already on the radar of Ohio State basketball coach Thad Matta for potential future recruitment.

Check out some of LeBron Jr's highlight reels and see the hype for yourself.

The kid has talent, and his old man knows it. "He plays just like I did," James Sr. has observed. "He has great awareness, and he'd rather pass first and set guys up. Most kids nowadays just want to score."

When you compare the youngster to how his Dad played in high school you can see a big difference. Check these videos out and see for yourself.

LeBron Sr. dominated in school because he was so much more physical than everyone he faced. James was a grown man in a 17-year-old's body and could dunk with ease when some players would struggle to reach the rim.

James the Younger is a lot more skill-based, dishing the ball out quickly and accurately like a mature point guard should. 

The kid is going to be good, the only question is how good? We'll just have to wait and see.
