LeBron James wants colleges to stop recruiting his 10-year-old son

A modest proposal.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James' son, LeBron James Jr. (on the right in the above photograph) is 10 years old and he's already getting offers from colleges. LeBron isn't too happy about that. From the Washington Post:

"He's already got some offers from colleges," James, who skipped college to turn pro, told reporters Tuesday. "It's pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn't be recruiting 10-year-old kids."

The wild thing is: he actually had to say that. SOME PEOPLE DON'T JUST KNOW THAT ALREADY.

And if you wanted to see LBJ Jr. in action:

Oh. Oh wow. Yeah. Still, don't recruit 10-year-olds, people.
