LeBron James spent the weekend in Miami and both he and his 12-year-old son LeBron Jr. had some fun.

The NBA’s four-time MVP and a three-time champion (he won his first two rings with the Miami Heat) worked out at the University of Miami during the day and then partied with friends at night even getting behind the turntables for a while at Komodo Miami restaurant off Brickell Avenue.

Meanwhile, his eldest son played some hoops with Heat center Hassan Whiteside at the Miami Pro-Am. LeBron Jr. threw a pair of alley-oops to Whiteside and then got an assist from the Heat’s 7-footer who lifted him up for a dunk of his own.

James, 32, is hardly the only NBA player who plays for another team in the league who spent time hanging out in Miami this summer.

All-Stars John Wall, James Harden and Kyrie Irving have all come down and worked out at UM over the past month.

Harden and Wall actually played in the Miami Pro-Am at Miami High earlier this month.
