Watch your backs, boys: LeBron and Wade's kids got next

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade's sons clearly are looking seriously at following in their dads' footsteps based on their Instagram videos.

Send the scouts to the school bus stops -- it's not too soon to start seriously looking at LeBron James and Dwyane Wade's kids, 'cause the kids clearly are looking seriously at following in their dads' footsteps.

Wade posted Instagram pics of him late-night training with 9-year-old Zaire, and the workouts are no joke.

James did his bragging last week after LeBron Jr., 9, went for 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a game.

"I just had to hold up my end of the bargain," a smiling LeBron told FOX Sports Florida after scoring 39 against Dallas. "It's a very competitive household these days."

No kidding. We got a peek in LeBron's latest commercial.

James still can school 'em, though.

"He actually said he had a triple-double in the car," James said of the boy he calls Bronny. "I had to explain it to him that you needed to have 10 rebounds and 10 assists."

So whose kid would win the game of one-on-one? Sounds like a good episode of the upcoming sitcom based in part on Wade's experiences as a parent. Almost as good as this.

Can James or Wade's kid be even better than his old man? Good luck; you don't see MJ, Magic or Bird's kids headed to the NBA.

Come to think of it, how many sons of NBA stars surpass their dads? So far, no one, really. Either the dads were great and the sons weren't, or the other way around.

The best bets to do it? (before Bronny and Zaire)

1. Steph Curry

2. Tim Hardaway Jr.

3. Austin Rivers

4. Glen Rice Jr.
