The best basketball player in the world has a couple sons that are pretty good at the sport, too.
LeBron James Jr., the eldest of LeBron James’ two boys, is in Lexington this weekend for the KBA Summer Sizzler Basketball Tournament. James Jr., 9, plays for the Miami City Ballers. He and his team recently took a tour of Kentucky’s Joe Craft Center, including a visit inside John Calipari’s office.
It’s apparently never too early for Kentucky to start recruiting some of the country’s most elite basketball players, even if they’re yet to reach middle school.
