Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has a lookalike! Well, this happened in high school, but people still talk about it.
An NBA fan came across a doppelganger of the Lakers superstar. Guess what… The player is still in the NBA. Adam Faris shared his take on TikTok and offered a highlight reel of a current NBA player in his high school basketball days.
Danuel House looked just like LeBron back in the past. Check out this haircut and his cool dunk. House attracted the attention of many people. Some even joked he was the long-lost son of King James. Years later, we came across another hilarious story related to these two.
House didn’t take the same route as LeBron. The kid from Akron became the best basketball player of all time. House went undrafted. He began his career with the Washington Wizards. Well, he played one minute with the team. The Phoenix Suns signed him for a season and then he joined the Houston Rockets in 2018.
LeBron James and his lookalike have different careers
House was at the bottom of the NBA and now he plays a big role with the Houston Rockets. He is part of their lineup now. Many would agree that House is the perfect rotational player. He is averaging 9.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game with the team.
LeBron and House were pretty similar back in the days but their NBA careers are super strange. LeBron is impressive with his teams. He won four titles and is on his way to his next championship win. In his first five years in the league, LeBron averaged 27.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game. LeBron is the best the NBA has ever seen and fans love him. He is on his third team and LA is more than happy to have him around.
In his first season with the Lakers, LeBron missed a lot of time due to a groin injury. He won a championship inside the NBA bubble in Orlando.
LeBron is a superstar. He was never a rotational player.
