LeBron James Is Coaching A 7th Grader Bigger Than Him At His Son's Game

LeBron James, one of the most physically intimidating athletes of all-time, stands at 6-foot-8, 270 pounds - though some question whether he actually weighs that much these days. Somehow, at this son's AAU game, he looked a lot smaller than one of the players on the court.

LeBron James Jr. plays for the North Coast Blue Chips and one of his teammates, Jahzare Jackson, is a lot bigger than the competition. Jackson doesn't have an official height, but he's listed between 6-foot-7 and 6-foot-9. He's also listed at 270 pounds, which seems light when you see him next to LeBron.

Overtime tweeted out a short clip of LeBron helping coach the team. He's talking to Jackson, who is clearly bigger than him. It's an image that's amusing to take in.

Jackson appears to be both a football prospect and a basketball prospect. If he keeps growing this way, he'll probably have his pick when it comes to which sport he wants to play in college. Others on social media have noticed Jackson's size too. At 13 years old, he's basically impossible for other teams to deal with in the paint.

Here's a YouTube hype video someone made for him. It consists of just what you'd expect.

LeBron, of course, just signed with the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason. It looks like he's starting to focus on his son's career next.
