LeBron Jr. Was So Dominant at AAU Tournament, It Left His Godfather Chris Paul in Awe (VIDEO)
In case you haven’t heard, LeBron James‘ 13-year-old son, LeBron James Jr., is pretty good at basketball.
Shocking, I know.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago LeBron Jr. led his middle school team to an Independent School League tournament title in Ohio. But this past weekend he was in Houston this past weekend for an AAU tournament. And while LeBron Jr.’s actual father couldn’t come watch, he did have his godfather in attendance. Because his godfather is Houston Rockets superstar point guard Chris Paul.
What did CP3 think of his godson’s performance? He was pretty impressed.
In addition to his preternatural ball handing, passing, and shooting skills, LeBron Jr. also showed off his solid defensive acumen in Houston. In fact, after one particularly thunderous block, the cameraman quickly found Chris Paul on the sidelines and caught him staring at LeBron Jr. in awe.
The block, and Paul’s reaction, start at the 0:50 mark in the highlight reel below. Check it out:
Pretty impressive, right? Well, just think about this: if LeBron Sr. can somehow manage to stick around for six more seasons after this one, he could actually play with his son.
Of course, in six years LeBron will be 39 years old. But if Vince Carter can play at the age of 41, surely LeBron can play at the age of 39, right?
