We’ve seen so many sports star’s sonsĀ never reach the heights of their fathers. Whether it’s Michael Jordan’s son Marcus or Joe Montana’s son Nick, it’s tough living up to the legend of your dad.

That’s why I’m keeping my eye on LeBron James Jr., who’s obviously the son of NBA star LeBron James. The 12 year-old phenom has been crushing the AAU circuit and looks like a man amongst boys, playing against kids his own age.

One thing that favors LeBron James Jr. is how freakishly big and athletic his father is. If the youngster gets even 75% of his dad’s height and jumping ability, he’ll be a bonafide superstar within the next decade.
