LeBron James Jr. has offers from Kentucky Wildcats and Duke

Say what?!?

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James reminded everyone he's the best player in the world while leading the Cavaliers to their first NBA Finals championship, ending over five decades of Cleveland sports misery.

James was named NBA Finals MVP after scoring 27 points, 11 rebounds and dishing out 11 assists in his team's Game 7 win over the Golden State Warriors. Only two other players had notched triple-doubles in an NBA Finals Game 7.

Needless to say, King James is back atop his NBA throne, but the 31-year-old has only so many years of greatness left in him. It also won't be too long until his son, LeBron James Jr., sees his time to shine.

ESPN NBA reporters Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst followed LeBron after Cleveland's historic win Sunday night, and they posted in an interesting tidbit about LeBron Jr. as he celebrated with his pops.

He (LeBron) raised both arms, just as he did when he pinned Iguodala's would-be layup against the glass with his right arm, and his son, 11-year-old LeBron Jr., did the same (making it no wonder why he already has standing scholarship offers from both Duke and Kentucky, according to a source).

James Jr. has already been dominating at his level of basketball, so it's becoming easy to see why he may already have college offers. Still, with his greatest growth and development still way ahead of him, it's very hard to know what kind of college player he'll be.
