LeBron James' mom, Gloria, is one proud grandma in recent Instagram photos taken while she was supporting her youngest grandson, Bryce, at a basketball tournament in Houston.
Gloria James stood by her son LeBron James' side throughout his impressive basketball career, from a young hopeful to the four-time NBA championship winner that he is today. Now, she is showing that same devotion to her grandchildren.
Gloria is a doting grandmother to her son's three kids, Bronny, 16, Bryce Maximus, 13, and Zhuri James, 6, and she is fully involved in many aspects of their lives, including their sports ventures.

A PROUD GRANDMOM
Recently, Gloria attended one of Bryce's basketball tournaments in Houston and captured a few snaps of the memorable event to share with her Instagram followers. She wrote:
"Traveled to Houston to support my youngest grandson, Bryce Maximus, during his AAU Tournament! Lets go, Champ!"
In the first snap, Gloria, dressed in a matching grey sweater and sweatpants, posed with her grandson, Bryce, who is already significantly taller than her. The teen was dressed in his basketball kit but without the sneakers.
A second photo showed Gloria smiling, her white facemask tucked under her chin as she posed for a selfie in front of a water feature with mesmerizing violet-blue lights.
LIKE FATHER LIKE SON
The last image in Gloria's post featured Bryce standing on the basketball court with his hands rested on his knee, an image that closely mirrored his father, LeBron, and showed how much the teen favors his dad.
LeBron is arguably one of the greatest NBA basketball players of all time, and it seems that he has passed some of that talent down to his sons. Both Bryce and Bronny are passionate about basketball.
INSPIRING NEW GENERATIONS
Just as he has inspired his sons, LeBron also hopes to inspire his young fans around the world. Last year, he published a children's book titled "I Promise," aimed at helping young people to pursue their dreams confidently.
The Los Angeles Lakers player is an incredible example of how anyone can achieve greatness. Having been raised in a single-parent home, he rose above his circumstances to become one of the sports world's most recognized names.
A FAMILY MAN
Even with the fame and fortune that LeBron has amassed over the years, he is still a family man and has never forgotten his journey to stardom and the one person who helped him through the years, his mom, Gloria.
The sports superstar has always credited Gloria, who became a single mom at just 16 years, for her unwavering love and support.
