In LeBron’s house, game-winners a family affair

November 26, 2013

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James is not the only one in his house hitting game-winning shots these days.

The Miami Heat star’s two young sons actually beat the NBA’s four-time Most Valuable Player to the dramatic punch late last week.

Within a span of 24 hours or so starting Friday afternoon, James’ sons Bryce and LeBron Jr. both made buzzer-beating layups to win games in their respective youth leagues.

So on Saturday night, James had to take his turn, knocking down a jump shot on Miami’s final possession to give the Heat a 101-99 win over the Orlando Magic.

And yes, he was feeling a bit of in-house peer pressure that night.

“It’s going down in my household right now,” James said before Monday’s game with Phoenix. “It’s getting scary.”
