Remember LeBron James' chasedown block on Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals? Well, Bronny James Jr. was able to replicate that in one of his AAU games.

Here's the split-screen comparison for those who are still clueless about that signature moment by LeBron.

Like father, like son, right?
Bronny is currently a high school student in Crossroads School at Santa Monica, California and is playing for the North Coast Blue Chips in the AAU. At 14 years old, he's already displaying a ton of potential and could be one of the best players to declare for the NBA draft four to five years from now.
LeBron James, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, has stated on multiple occasions that he wants to play with Bronny before he retires from the NBA. He has three years left in his contract with the Purple and Gold, and by the time that it ends, he will be 37 years old and his oldest son will be 17.
If James wants that to happen, he will have to play for a few more years after his contract expires and hope that the team he's playing for — assuming it's still the Lakers — will have the opportunity to draft Bronny.
LeBron and Bronny playing together could take place in as early as 2023. So for now, James' focus is helping the Lakers recruit top-tier free agents this summer while his son is doing what a normal student-athlete does.
They have different careers, but the end goal is for them to wear the same jersey before everything is said and done for the elder James.
