LeBron James? Kid takes pic of basketball player in jeepney ride to Las Piñas

Could it be?

It was bound to go viral because the uncanny resemblance to LeBron James was unmistakable, and in a traditional Filipino jeepney of all places.

It takes several glances to make sure it’s not the widely popular basketball player that Grade 12 student Joshua Barraca took a picture of during his commute in Las Piñas City.

"Nakasabay ko po siya kahapon kakauwi ko lang po galing school . . . napatingin po ako sa mukha then simula noon na-confuse na ako kasi kamukha niya idol ko na si Lebron James," Barraca said.

Quite a stir it would’ve caused had it really been James, but turns out it was just a lookalike!

The LeBron doppelganger turns out to be a Cameroonian basketball player named Yanscott Mboe.

Barraca later on encountered Mboe online and apologized for taking unsolicited photos of him on the jeep, but the Cameroonian basketball player was fine with is.

"Ayun, OK na naman daw po," Barraca said.
