LeBron James Jr. honors father by wearing No. 23, ESPN reports

LeBron James Jr. made his basketball debut in Los Angeles wearing a number that made his father proud, ESPN reports. 

James, who used to wear No. 0 while playing AAU, surprised his father, LeBron James, by wearing No. 23. 

"I don't know how long it's going to last, but it definitely made me feel proud," James told ESPN. 

James told ESPN that his 11-year-old son Bryce has decided to wear No. 6, the number he wore when he played for the Miami Heat.

"But it was cool when he came downstairs the other day and showed me that he was wearing 23 and then my youngest son came to me and showed me that he was wearing 6," James said. 

LeBron James Jr. made his first in-game dunk ever. 

James scored 27 points during his first game.
