Just before 10th birthday, LeBron James Jr. hits half-court shot

Ball Don't Lie

Last week we heard that college coaches already have their eyes on LeBron James Jr. His highlight reels are all over YouTube. And on Saturday, two days before his 10th birthday, he added the latest incredible shot.

"Bronny" stopped by the Cavaliers' practice court to shoot around with his dad, who is known to hit half court shots during practice. After one of them, Bronny picked up the ball with one hand and launched his own. The local station 19 Action News Cleveland captured it:

Most grown men can't hit that shot for all the prize money in the world. But Bronny just smiled, as if it's something he does every day. 

Later Saturday, Bronny celebrated his upcoming birthday (it was Monday) with a Nerf-themed party. LeBron might've been more excited than the kids. He posted a photo on Instagram, with the caption "At Bronny 10th b-day party! 'NERF GUN THEMED' and I'm ready for WAR!! Hey kids don't run I won't hurt you! Lol. #LetsGo #NerfOrNothinh #ImAGiantKidAtThisParty #CaptureTheFlag #HostageRescue."

And in keeping with tradition, they went all-out with the cake. Last year, his Xbox-themed cake featured LeBron's NBA 2K14 cover.
