If you haven't been paying attention to the latest in LeBronland, here's a quick update: LeBron James Jr. is pretty good at basketball too. The 11-year-old son of Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James has been tearing up the AAU tournament circuit as a member of the Akron Blue Chips. James the younger displays an ability to get to the rim with ease, and he has a deft touch on his passes that are reminiscent of his father's. But in his latest highlight to blow up on Instagram, it's clear that "defense" also belongs on the list of things "Bronny" does well.
In the clip, LeBron Jr. comes out of nowhere to stuff an unsuspecting opponent, blocking him with such force that the shooter tumbles to the ground. Junior then picks up the loose ball and races to the other end of the court, where he sidesteps a defender, hits a twisting layup and gets fouled for the and-one. The camera then shows a visibly proud LeBron Sr. pumping his fist.
Another incredible play from a young man who looks better with each passing game.
