LeBron James Jr., the eldest son of the man who led the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA championship, is a perfect mini-me version of his father on the court. At just 11 years old, the kid they call "Bronny" is already making no-look passes that would make his dad proud, while maneuvering his body to the rim whenever he wants to score. Bronny has been tearing up both local and national AAU tournaments, leaving little doubt in the minds of the basketball community that he will follow in the footsteps of his famous father all the way to NBA.
The dream seems far away. The kid is still in middle school, not even old enough to play JV hoops. But you can already see the light at the end of the tunnel that leads to pro hoops. According to ESPN, LeBron Jr. has already received scholarship offers from college basketball powerhouses Duke and Kentucky. By the time he hits high school, the list of schools pursuing him will have grown exponentially.
The NBA is still a distant dream for LeBron's son, but the path to get there has been rolled out like a red carpet. It will be fun to watch Bronny's rise as his father's NBA career winds down in the years to come.
