LeBron James is his children’s biggest fan!

The NBA legend, 38, proudly showed off his 8-year-old daughter Zhuri Nova’s volleyball skills in an Instagram post on Sunday.

The post contained three videos in which the athlete referred to Zhuri as his “munchkin” and could be heard proudly cheering her on.


While the first two clips showcased her serving the volleyball, the last one showed her adorably giving her dad an embarrassed look after he shouted, “Let’s go munchkin.”

In the comment section, many social media users left messages about the sweet father-daughter interaction. One fan wrote, “I love the look she gave you, I do the same thing to my daughters.” Another fan added, “Zhuri’s face at the end 😂.”

James continued to praise Zhuri in the caption of the post by writing, “Another One in the making! Uh-Oh 😱!!” Let’s Gooooooo Munchin!! @allthingszhuri got NEXT!! 🏐 VIBES!! #JamesGang👑 #ZTheWarriorPrincess👸🏾.”

Apart from Zhuri, James is also a parent to Bronny and Bryce James, with his wife Savannah James.

“My daughter is the greatest thing in my life, along with my boys,” he told Access Hollywood in 2021. “So, whenever she smiles, it don’t matter what I’m doing, it makes me happy.”

While Zhuri has taken a liking to volleyball, Bronny, 19, and Bryce, 16, are known for their basketball skills. After graduating from high school in May, Bronny committed to the University of Southern California (USC) for basketball.

Earlier this month, James shared that Bronny is doing “extremely well” and had a “successful surgery” after having suffered cardiac arrest during a basketball workout in July.

The update came a few weeks after the James family announced that Bronny was diagnosed with “an anatomically and functionally significant congenital heart defect” and that it is something “which can and will be treated.”

In August, Bryce committed to play for Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California. That same month, he announced that he received his first Division I scholarship offer to play basketball at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
