LeBron James Jr. is already putting up big numbers

Prep Rally

The Miami Heat may not have hit their full stride yet, but the son of their most famous star is off and rolling.

As noted by LeBron James himself on Instagram, LeBron James Jr. — "Bronny" to his father and friends — scored a whopping 25 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists during a Thursday night game. Wearing number 0, the 9-year-old also reportedly showcased some of the moves that made one of his father’s teammates famous.

Here’s how LeBron described Bronny’s performance on Instagram.

Bronny went for 25-8-8 tonight. He getting better and better. Couple euro steps looking like @dwyanewade and what I like most is his unselfishness #HeGotNext #StriveForGreatness

You can see the younger LeBron James in action above. He may not be at his father’s level yet, but it’s clear that young Bronny has plenty of talent, too.
