LeBron James is human after all as the basketball star shows with some sideline antics at his son's game earlier this week.

The driven dad can be seen delivering some strong advice to junior from his seat on the bleachers.

Then, as his youngster delivers a perfect layup during the fourth-grade AAU game in Lexington, Kentucky, James turns into a proud papa, delivering celebrations that include a roll around the floor with his smothered son at the game's completion.

The nine-year-old clearly has the genes to make advances in basketball.

Meanwhile, dad is set to make US$21.5 million this season with Cleveland after leaving the Miami Heat to return to his home state in the hopes of adding to his two NBA Championships.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
