LeBron James Jr. dominates at youth tournament
Over Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s holiday weekend, LeBron James‘ son once again showed why he will likely be a top prospect in the college recruiting process when his time comes – even if he is currently 12 years old.
In a seemingly endless series of highlights, James Jr., who plays for the undefeated Northeast Blue Chips 2023 team, displayed excellent court vision, crafty ball-handling skills, and a deadly three-point shot as he led his team to victory.
At the age of 11, James Jr. started receiving scholarship interest from powerhouse NCAA teams like Kentucky and Duke, as TheScrore.com reported last year. As most basketball fans know, the elder James decided to forgo a college stint and was selected with the number one overall pick in the 2003 draft by the Cavaliers – a feat no longer possible in the NBA.
With quite a few years left until James Jr. would even have to consider making a commitment to a school, coaching from the likes of a John Calipari or Mike Krzyzewski will just have to wait.
