It must be really tough being the kid of a celebrity or famous athlete, except for all of the easy parts. Sure there’s a bit of pressure here and there, as well as the constant invasion of privacy and potential fears of not being able to live up to a certain standard.
Yet apart from that, and just a few other things, what’s not to like? Such kids, if they aren’t secret love children or the like, are usually born with golden spoons in their mouths and have all needs and wants readily available.
So it’s no wonder some of them are spoiled rotten.
Said personalities used to be much harder to track down back in the day, but in today’s technological era, they are just as accessible as everyone else on social media platforms. Their online accounts are never short of entertainment - and of course a few disturbing, annoying pics.
People are generally allowed to be as annoying as they’d like, yet when it comes to persons of note, the judgement goes deeper.
In this list, we take a look at 15 of some of the most annoying Instagram photos ever posted by kids of famous sports stars, both past and present.
15 Brooklyn Beckham (son of David)
Brooklyn Beckham, as you may have already guessed, is the son of David and Victoria Beckham. The 18-year-old will probably never be as famous as his dad, but he has lots of years left to prove me wrong.
David rose to fame as a footballer, starting out at Manchester United before going on to represent the likes of Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain. Despite hanging up his boots four years ago, his name is still one of the most popular around.
His wife Victoria was part of the famous Spice Girls pop band, and was dubbed Posh Spice in her younger years. Apart from Brooklyn, the couple have three other kids, namely, Cruz, Romeo and Harper Seven.
Why is this pic annoying? Well he's posing with a cigarette for God's sake. Smoking isn't as frowned upon today as it was before, yet it's still not a good look for the boy.
14 EJ Johnson (Son Of Magic)
The son of former Los Angeles Lakers star Magic Johnson, EJ Johnson is openly gay. Before you get any ideas, though, him being gay isn't why he made this list. We're perfectly fine with and respect everyone's sexual preference here at The Sportster; just so it's clear.
Now that that's out of the way, let's carry on.
EJ, 25, is a star on The Rich Kids of Beverly Hill, and is an outspoken fashionista. He could have probably been as big a star as his dad was had he chosen to pursue basketball, as he does have the stature for it, but the Reality TV star is doing his own thing.
Why is this pic annoying? He's showing nipples is why. Not that the exposing of nipples is something novel, but he could have easily concealed them and chose not to.
13 Patrick Schwarzenegger (Son Of Arnold)
Not only is Patrick Schwarzenegger the son of the world-famous Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Terminator, Konan the Barbarian, seven-time Mr. Olympia and four-time Mr. Universe, he's also the great-nephew of the late John F. Kennedy, former President of the United States, on his mother's side.
Patrick owns a few pizza restaurants in Los Angeles, and founded his own clothing line at the age of just 15; with the help of his parents, of course.
The 24-year-old is also a model and actor, and played roles in films Stuck in Love and Grown Ups 2.
Why is this pic annoying? He's a grown man wearing a video game-themed onesie, making a silly pose, and taking a photo of it too. No son of The Terminator is supposed to do stuff like that!
12 Shareef O’Neal (Son Of Shaq)
Shareef O'Neal is the son of former Lakers and Miami center Shaquille O'Neal, and judging by the way he plays the game, he looks set to be just as good as his old man.
At just 17 and standing at 6-foot-9, he is already quite the specimen, and we shouldn't be surprised to see him balling in the NBA one day. Shareef currently plays basketball for his Santa Monica private high school, and has verbally committed to playing for the Arizona Wildcats when he leaves.
He admits that there is already a lot of pressure on his shoulders.
"My dad is known as the best big man to ever live," he said in a sit down with Bleacher Report. "That’s a big accomplishment for him, but for me, it’s a lot of pressure."
So why is this pic annoying? More of a jealousy thing really. This kid gets to be Shaq's son, great at basketball, and an apparent love seat for pretty girls. Sighs.
11 Bronny James (Son Of LeBron)
Let's just get straight into why this one is annoying. First off, this kid is a 12-year-old, likely playing against other 12-year-olds. And, of course, he may very well be a future NBA star, but there's also a good chance of things going the other way.
Bronny James, the son of Cleveland Cavaliers star and three-time NBA champions LeBron James, probably isn't the one who captioned this picture. But he posted it to his Instagram, so he must agree with it.
So he hates taking pictures and signing autographs, cool - but trying to get out of his dad's shadow at 12? That certainly seems a bit ridiculous; that shadow is the best possible place young Bronny could be. But we all know where he gets his hubris from, don't we?
Oh, and his name is actually LeBron so...
10 Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. (Son of Cristiano)
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer around at the moment. And while many may argue that his Argentinian counterpart Lionel Messi is more deserving of the title, we're simply going on the player's success over the past few two seasons.
The Portugal international won the Champions League for two successive campaigns, sandwiching a Euro 16 triumph in between. He also won the La Liga title at the end of last term, and was awarded the last Ballon d'Or, as well as the Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year Award.
His son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is still seven, but he already has well over 450,000 Instagram followers, which is already annoying in itself.
The above image is based on a time when he gate-crashed his dad's interview wearing a Superman costume in 2015. To be honest, it's actually kind of cute, but still annoying as he captioned it with the word "Throwback."
9 Romeo Beckham (Son of David)
David Beckham's second son Romeo turned 15 in September, and can claim to have beaten his famous dad at tennis on a single occasion.
That's according to David, who cheekily mentioned the feat – so to speak - in his Instagram birthday message to Romeo. "Fine young man growing up to be a fine young gentleman but has only beaten his dad at tennis just the once so far but maybe now he is 15 that's gonna change," he posted.
Romeo obviously has his own Instagram account, and has amassed a healthy following of 869,000 fans. His photo above is annoying because it's kinda boastful for a kid who has only beaten his old man once on the tennis court. Still a smart pic, though. Hot? No, not so much.
8 Destiny Odom (Daughter Of Lamar)
Destiny Odom is the daughter of ex-Lakers and Clippers star Lamar Odom. After getting released by the Lakers and bouncing to two other teams, Lamar would battle a serious drug addiction and came shockingly close to losing his life at one point.
Destiny is very close to her dad, judging by some of the other photos on her Instagram, and has revealed that she played a big part in helping him overcome his issues.
“With close family friends, I basically gave him the ultimatum that it was rehab or me not speaking to him anymore," she once claimed in an interview. “I think that hit him really hard.”
So why is her pic annoying? Well, it's of her dad being jokingly portrayed as a gangster, somewhat. Funny, yes, but still annoying anyhow.
7 Tiaura Iverson (Daughter Of Allen)
Allen Iverson has quite the hottie for a daughter. I swear, I spent close to an hour going through her photos; and it was very, very depressing. Explore her account for a bit and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.
The 22-year-old beauty has loads of photos on there and it was pretty hard to find one that was annoying until this one of her flipping 'them' the bird popped up. And she capped it off by adding the caption "[Expletive] 'em"
If she's anything like her father, though, such an action is really nothing. Those of you who knew Iverson during his playing days must know that the former 76ers star packs quite the attitude. He also didn't care much for practice, and Tiaura simply doesn't need any - for anything. She’s already winning at life.
6 Kyle Fox (Son Of Rick)
Kyle Fox is the son of Rick Fox. Rick played 13 years in the NBA suiting up for the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers during that stint.
The erstwhile forward won three NBA rings with the Lakers, teaming up with the likes of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal and Derek Fisher to bring huge success to L.A.
His son Kyle didn't get to see much of him in person while he was playing for the Lakers, as he lived on the East Coast, but the pair connected in the online gaming world, playing games like World of Warcraft and League of Legends together from different ends of the country.
Two years ago, Rick purchased a League of Legends team, now called Echo Fox, becoming one of the first big-name former athletes to actively become involved in eSports.
Oh, and Kyle's pic is annoying because it's a gym pic in which his arms don't look great at all. He really should have waited to get them in shape first. His chest does look okay, though.
5 Jason Kidd Jr. (Son Of Jason)
Not very hard to guess that this chap is Jason Kidd's son. Kidd, now coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, led a stellar NBA career as a point guard, winning his only ring with the Dallas Mavericks back in 2011.
The 44-year-old is also a 10-time All-Star and a five-time assists leader. Kidd was always an exemplary player, but his parenting skills left a lot to be desired in his younger days, according to the mother of two of his children, whom he had out of wedlock.
Jason Jr. is one of those kids - and no, he doesn't seem to be pursuing a career in basketball. Looking at his Instagram feed, it screams of someone who's very much into themselves and you don't have to look through many pics to annoy you... but we had to pick one.
4 Zion Mayweather (Son Of Floyd)
When your dad goes by the moniker 'Money', it seems pretty cool to throw it around, and it probably is (even if it's fake). But that certainly doesn't mean it won't annoy people.
Zion Mayweather, the son of Floyd Mayweather, seems pretty spoiled, yet who could blame the kid. His father makes so much money, even the people he beats up get paid handsomely.
Mayweather recently fought MMA competitor Conor McGregor in one of the biggest fights in the history of boxing, and of course he won. After the fight he revealed that it would be his last time in the ring.
The 50-0 winner is said to have made $100 million off the 10-round fight. And while he hasn't been as good a dad as he should have been, he's surely trying to make up for that now.
The image above is from Zion's 16th birthday party in which the boxer treated his son to a performance from Young Thug. The youngster was also handed a brand new Mercedes-Benz on the night.
3 Koraun Mayweather (Son of Floyd)
Koraun Mayweather is another one of Floyd's sons, and their relationship hasn't always been that great. In fact, he once referred to the retired boxer as 'a coward' having witnessed him beat his mom Josie Harris.
The youngster also described the events during an exclusive interview, explaining that he Floyd asked him to lock himself in his room while he proceeded to abuse Josie. He would escape through his bathroom and have a guard summon the police and ambulance, ultimately leading to his father's arrest and imprisonment.
The boxer has since made amends and seems to have successfully built a better relationship with all of his kids, fortunately.
Why is Koraun's pic annoying? Just a cheesy pose is all, although the St. Lunatics would be proud.
2 Jasmine Jordan (Daughter of Michael)
Daughter of 'His Airness' Michael Jordan, Jasmine Jordan is the former player's youngest child. The 24-year-old studied Sports Management at University, provinging that she shares Mike's love for sport, and has even hosted basketball events in the past.
Jasmine has also designed her own Jordan sneakers, helping birth the 'Jasmine Collection'. Not much else is known about her, but she's pretty active on social media, having amassed over 52,000 followers on Instagram.
Her pic is annoying because it shows her behind some tatted up dude and must evoke feelings of jealousy. God knows what they had been doing or were about to do. Come to think of it, that pic of Iverson’s daughter throwing up her middle finger isn’t so bad anymore now, is it?
1 LaMelo Ball (son of LaVar)
This one really needs no explaining. It's simply one of those things that makes one go 'smfh' upon first glance.
LaMelo Ball is the younger brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and UCLA star LiAngelo Ball.
He is also the son of LaVar Ball, who admittedly wasn't that great of an athlete. LaVar has put himself out there in recent times with his absurd statements and attention-grabbing ploys to further promote his family's 'Big Baller Brand' – which is doing quite well, to be fair.
The 16-year-old LaMelo is a basketball player himself and committed to UCLA three years ago. He plays as a point guard for his Chino Hills High School, but his father has said he plans to pull him out of school and home-school him until it's time to go to college. He is expected to follow his eldest brother, and possibly his other sibling, into the NBA in future.
He isn't doing himself any favors with such pics, though.
