My little newphew thinks this kid below could beat KD, and he is dead serious. Bless his heart.
That kids handles are pretty ******* legit for 13 though. Does that mean he'll wind up in the league? Who knows. Do I think its cool that people are making highlight vids of kids 13 (and younger)? Not at all. But that kid has some talent for sure.
And I think people who really love the game and really learn it eventually get past the Hoop Mix Tape, Team Flight Bros, BS and recognize what really makes players good. We have a lot of young cats on here that are able to see past that stuff. It just takes a little while.
And, really, its not anything new. I think back to when I was 13 and for sure wanted to think that the young players who were getting hyped up were the next big thing and could possibly better than the existing NBA players. Only difference was it was much harder to find out about those kind of guys.
