Lebron James has already established himself as one of the greatest baskeball players of all time, and his son Bryce has already shown lots of potential to follow in his dad's footsteps.

The 11-year-old is playing youth basketball at the moment and footage has emerged of Lebron giving his son a heartwarming pep talk after he was disappointed in one of his performances.

It is probably tough to play basketball when your dad is one of the best players ever, but Lebron is nothing like the stereotypical sideline parent as he picks his son up after a match.

"You made three of the biggest plays," James said.

"You get too down on yourself for no reason. Down four, you got the offensive rebound. You had the outlet pass to Owen and then you made the last swing pass to him for the game winner.

"If you are missing shots, or making shots, don't worry about it kid. You played a hell of a game. Don't worry about making shots or missing shots. Good job. I'm proud of you."
