WATCH: Son of LeBron shows signs of greatness at youth tournament
At just 12-years-old, it sounds quite absurd to hear that LeBron James Jr. has reportedly been offered basketball scholarships by top notch programs like the Duke and Kentucky.
But after viewing his highlights from the Martin Luther King Tournament in Fort Wayne, Indiana, it’s not that hard to see why the King James’ heir to the throne is garnering so much attention at a young age.
As seen in a video montage uploaded on YouTube recently, the youngster—who is famously referred to as “Bronny” by his superstar dad—looked like a man among boys after leading his North Coast Blue Chips 2023 team to an undefeated weekend.
His slick ball handling, paired with top-notch court vision and unselfishness, dazzled the internet, which quickly dubbed him as a “clone” of his four-time NBA MVP dad.
By the end of the video highlight, Bronny was even seen doing the water bottle flip challenge while in the bench, eerily similar to James’ shenanigans with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season.
Although it’s still quite early to tell, James Jr. certainly showed flashes of potential greatness, and is surely a prospect to watch out for years to come. Khristian Ibarrola
