LeBron James delivered one of the best games of his early season experience on Friday night. One of his sons, however, viewed his hard work on the court as worthy of an “A-” grade.
LeBron Jr. answered candidly when the reporter requested a rating of his father’s performance after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ victory against the Los Angeles Clippers. The teen’s younger brother, Bryce, gave dad an “A+” for coming through with 39 points, six assists, and 14 rebounds. LeBron Jr., however, told the reporter that his dad’s performance was worthy of a lower score because of minor mistakes during the game.

“They tough on me,” LeBron Sr. told media. “I got the toughest household on the team,” he explained. “If I got an A-minus, I need an A-plus in Detroit on Monday. Gotta get better.”
Getting better is a process that LeBron hopes to develop over time. The NBA star recently shared his dreams of playing alongside his oldest son in the association one day during an interview with ESPN. “I know I won’t be able to play at this level forever, but to be washed [up] and play … I don’t know if I can play washed,” James explained. “I d*mn sure would love to stick around if my oldest son can have an opportunity to play against me,” he added. “That’d be, that’d be the icing on the cake right there.”
How cool would it be to see the younger and older LeBron playing side-by-side at NBA games? Only the future knows what it holds for the James family.
