    I played him twice before. We beat them the first time by 20, and the second time we beat them by 8. He plays with older competition. He’s only 9 but he plays 12u. He’s gonna go places. BELIEVE that.

    Wtf is this kid? He looks like he came out of football practice from an interview :/ dude there's a fucking 6 year old in my gym who can dribble two balls closed eyes and can do every inbetween and shit. Lmao I can beat this dude. He looks plain average in his varsity lmao almost lost the ball to the smallest kid I saw in this video, and also in the middle of the running drill. Which means he is average -_A

    Show black kids reading and doing math and tech. Basketball is played out for blacks. That’s what they think all blacks only can do is play basketball. Ranking means nothing. As a coach in Chicago for over 12 years and have played the game I get sick of all this basketball is all that black kids can do.
