YouTube LeBron James Jr.

It's crazy to think about, but LeBron James Jr., now 12, is almost the age his father was when the world was first introduced to King James. Big LeBron appeared in Slam at age 16 and Sports Illustrated shortly after his 17th birthday.

Thanks to the internet's growth, the basketball world has been able to follow the life of "Bronny" essentially since his birth in October 2004. James Jr. started his youth career in Miami before relocating to Northeast Ohio. A number of showcase videos have popped up, but the latest highlight reel may be the strongest. With James Jr. approaching his teenage years, his potential high school abilities are now evident: he is an outstanding ball-handler, passer and jump shooter.

Take a look:

The clips, posted by D-Rich Tv Hoops, come from a recent MLK Day Weekend tournament in Fort Wayne, where James Jr.'s North Coast Blue Chips 2023 AAU team went undefeated.

Oh, and Bronny can do the water bottle flip like his dad:

Very impressive.
