LeBron James NBA free agency countdown clock has Suns fans buzzing: 'Like father like sun'

The official-sounding LeBron.com website has created a stir among Phoenix Suns fans for its simple four-word message.

"Like father like sun."

Only it isn't official.

The site, whose owner isn't known, also has a countdown clock that was set to reach 0:00 on Sunday, June 30, which just so happens to be during the period when NBA teams can start to negotiate with free agents.

Speculation has swirled around the Suns and LeBron James and his son, Bronny James in recent days with reports that the younger James will only work out for select NBA teams before the NBA Draft on June 26 and June 27 and speculation that the older James could potentially join his son in Phoenix, were the Suns to select him with the No. 22 pick.

The "Like father like sun" message further captivated Suns fans dreaming of LeBron James opting out of his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers to become a free agent and then potentially signing a veteran's minimum deal with Phoenix after the Suns potentially draft Bronny James.

LeBron James' official website is LeBronJames.com (which does not have a countdown clock), but the LeBron.com page's message and countdown clock still had Suns fans buzzing.

The countdown clock gives them another reason to have even the smallest sliver of belief that LeBron James could end up in Phoenix.
