In this story:

LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game, but for all the accolades he's received throughout his Hall of Fame career, it still felt good for James to remind his two sons just how good at basketball he is.

A viral video taken by James's youngest son, Bryce, showed LeBron hitting deep threes in the family's driveway while reminding his kids that he's the GOAT (greatest of all-time).

"That's not going in," Bryce says to LeBron at the beginning of the clip.

"Why you trippin'? LeBron asked as his deep shot was in mid-air. "Why you actin' like that? This is what I do. I'm GOAT bro. G-O-A-T," he continued as LeBron and his boys laughed.

After Bryce talked some more trash, LeBron rose up and let go of another shot.

"Stop playing with me. Stop playing with me! This is what I do man!" he exclaimed as the ball went through the net again.

LeBron has never been shy about the time that he spends with his kids away from the court. But it's clear that basketball is a big part of the family's life, even at home when James is not playing in a game for the Lakers.
