LeBron James cheers on his son at AAU game in Lexington (VIDEO)

Jul 20, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

LeBron James visited Lexington, Kentucky over the weekend to watch his son compete in some AAU basketball. And by the looks of things, the game’s greatest living player tried his best to act like nothing more than a typical father excited to see his kid play.

The highlight comes at the 18-second mark, when LeBron James, Jr. takes the ball on a dribble drive, and gets all the way to the basket for the and-1 finish. LeBron himself couldn’t have been happier, and at the fourth grade level, that’s about the best thing he could have hoped to see.

    Just to clarify……I have no problem with a father supporting his son and being there for him…..I do have a problem with what appears to be his looking to his Dad for coaching (and Lebron obliging). All he has to do is tell his son to listen to his coach during games. I am not the coach I am Daddy! He can teach him all he wants at home on his time but bball is a team sport….his son is a member of the team and the team has a coach. Many kids today have enough trouble respecting authority figures without the GOAT undermining his sons coach with his “in game” instructions. Lil Lebron will learn one thing from that strategy “I have Daddy’s permission NOT to listen to the Coach”

    I took four kids through AAU basketball (not to mention youth football and travel baseball) and the advice i have for lebron is no coaching from the stands. you are there to encourage. the coach is in charge and teaching comes after the game. the kids have too much to process as it is wiithout thier focus being divided.

    if lebron really wants his kid to learn to be a player bring him over here to indiana — he would have started playing in kindergarten. after all this is where pop is from.
