The basketball player watches his son compete in the national basketball tournament for fourth-graders.
LeBron James showed up in Lexington, Kentucky on Saturday night, July 19, to watch the AAU Fourth Grade National Championship with Kentucky coach John Calipari. The 29-year-old basketball player attended the game to support his 9-year-old son, LeBron Jr., who played in the national tournament.
In the video, the basketball superstar, who dons a casual black T-shirt, appears like a normal dad as he cheers and coaches his son from the sidelines. He tackles and hugs his son after the game in celebration. In the video, he is also seen chatting with coach Calipari, who comes to the game to pay him a visit.
LeBron is currently enjoying his time-off during the NBA off-season. He announced last week that he was leaving the Miami Heat. The 6 ft. and 8 in. tall basketball player will rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers in hopes of bringing the franchise an NBA title in the next season. Yahoo Sports reported that LeBron had contacted Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love and expressed a desire for them to play together in Cleveland. Kevin's enthusiastic about the idea of teaming with LeBron, sources reported. The Cavs will possibly trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin, but a deal is not imminent.
