The most eye-popping aspect of James Jr.’s game is his nearly psychic court vision, a quality he most certainly inherited from his father’s genetics and training. And it’s not like he has a stark height advantage (yet) to provide a top-down view of the floor. While he’ll probably be able to get away with a brute-force approach through high school, it’s nice to know he demonstrates the passing wizardry that LeBron Sr. has blessed us with at the NBA level.
We’ve got a while to wait, and who knows what the future holds, but for now, wallow in the reality that a 10-year-old is probably better at basketball than you ever were.
