Chris Paul’s 6-year-old son stole the ball from Kobe Bryant

The NBA All-Star Game was essentially one big farewell to Kobe Bryant, who was playing in his 18th and final ASG and got the send-off from Toronto that he deserved.

That didn’t mean much to Chris Paul’s 6-year-old son, though.

Chris Jr. got to mess around on the court with dad prior to the All-Star Game and at one point found himself going head-to-head with Kobe, who challenged the kid to guard him.

So little Chris got down in his defensive stance, eyed up Kobe and then made his daddy proud by promptly swiping the ball from him.

We’re only about 13 years away from Chris Jr. leading the NBA in steals.
