Kobe Bryant jokes there is one issue with LeBron James' sons' game

As you might expect with the offspring of a four-time NBA MVP, LeBron James' kids are already generating a lot of attention for their performances on the hardwood.

Bryce and Bronny James have both drawn plaudits for their own games and, despite their young age, each has their own highlight reels showcasing their impressive skills.

But, while they have both shown potential in their game, James' NBA peer, Kobe Bryant, joked recently that they're both guilty of one mistake - they pass too much.

As reported by ESPN's J.A. Adande, Kobe offered up some advice when he met LeBron's mother, Gloria, following the Lakers - Cavaliers game last week:

"(Kobe) saw LeBron's mother, Gloria, in the hallway outside the locker rooms and told her he'd been watching her grandsons' blossoming basketball talents. He had only one critique:

"They pass too much," Kobe told her. "Send them my way, and I'll fix that."

Shot shy

Kobe, of course, has been known throughout his career as a player who has never be shy of throwing up a shot.

The soon-to-be-retiring star has attempted the third most field goals in NBA history on route to third place on the all-time scoring list.

Whether James will take Bryant up on his semi-serious offer remains to be seen, but with his two sons already showing glimpses of their old man in their game tape, being able to add the skill set of another future Hall of Famer would almost be unfair.

There is a long way to go before we see whether either Byrce or Bronny are able to follow in their father's footsteps and play in the NBA. One thing is for sure, however, with LeBron's genes and Kobe as 'wannabe coach' you wouldn't bet against it.
