LeBron James burst onto the basketball scene when he was a teenager before being drafted No.1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers 2003. It’s only natural that his son, LeBron Jr., would make some noise at a young age as well. The 12-year-old put on a passing display over the weekend in a pickup game in Miami that featured Heat center Hassan Whiteside.
LeBron Jr. seems to be learning from one of the best passers in NBA history. The proud dad and a close family friend — Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade — were also impressed by the young protégé’s passing and dunking skills.
At one point, Whiteside even lifted the younger James so he could slam one home.
Of course, it was a pro-am, so there was minimal defense being played, but it was still pretty sweet to see LeBron’s son out there putting on a show.

A 6th grader who is steadily improving his game. At the 2017 Dru Joyce Shooting Stars Classic he helped lead the North Coast Blue Chips to the championship in front of his dad in their home city of Akron. Bronny showed great court vision, high basketball IQ, and improved athleticism.
