Young Lebron in the making: Drake’s 4-year-old son might be the next NBA star

The NBA should probably keep its eye out for someone who could be the next big basketball star. And sure, Lebron James‘ son Bronny may just be one of them, but a younger, much shorter contender is also to be considered. And that is Drake‘s 4-year-old son, Adonis, who seems to also be following in Lebron’s footsteps. 

Taking to Instagram Wednesday to share a video of the young star practicing his hoop skills, Drake is heard shouting from the sidelines supporting his son and motivating him to keep going.

“Reset, reset, reset. Good stuff,” says Drake after Adonis dropped the ball but restarted his moves down the court. The 35-year-old dad offered encouraging words to his boy, who eventually attempted a second shot that made it into the hoop.

“Let’s go, 1, 2 and we out to the crib,” Drake said calmly before again shouting, “To the crib!” Adonis had hit nothing but net. 

The best part of it all — the toddler’s mannerisms throughout his workout. He’d give himself double-pats on the chest, just as the professional ballers do. He’d adjust his yellow and grey jersey, while also adjusting his posture on the court. He even yelled “Ball!” before approaching to catch the rock. 

His dad found it funny but also questioned the source of the young boy’s gestures. “where is he getting the mannerisms from @kingjames,” he asked of the basketball legend. 

Reposting the cute video on IG Stories, Lebron returned the love to Drake and his son, saying, “my nephew really love the game!!”
