Depending on whom you believe, now is not the best time to get on LeBron James’ nerves. That’s likely why the scorekeeper at his son’s AAU game succumbed to the King when LeBron left his seat in the stands to approach the scorekeeper’s table and set the person in charge straight.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star was in Las Vegas on Thursday to watch LeBron James Jr.’s North Coast Blue Chips AAU team in an Adidas Uprising basketball tournament. When he didn’t feel the score was correct, he sauntered across the court during a timeout to tell the scorekeeper to change the tally.

Despite what LaVar Ball might tell you, 12-year-old LeBron James Jr. is a baller. He already has standing scholarship offers from college basketball powerhouses Duke and Kentucky, and LeBron Sr. says his eldest is already a better ball-handler and shooter than he was at the same age.

“We do a great job—my son and his team and his program—they do a great job of teaching them the right way,” James said back in March. “I didn’t handle the ball as well as he does, he handles the ball exceptionally and he shoots it a lot better than I did at that age. But I’ve always had the ability to pass the ball, and it’s good to see him doing it as well.”
