    Is this a big deal because he’s white? He might need some height in the future, ’cause his father looks like a midget too. The Professor had this going on too. What ever happened to him?

    Brings me back to the time And1 was popular.

    The commentator sucks a**!

    Sick Handle? I remember a story of a 8 year old. Same good, less doing the windmill with his hands, when doing his moves.

  • NJ4Life

    Maybe it’s because he’s twelve? I was doing those exact dribble sets as drills when I was 14. Never had cameras coming to my house.

    Not bad.
    He can at least get a degree if he sticks with it.

  • threetwo

    dude has a “please punch me” face and the commentator sounds like a circus clown

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    LMAO @ mike!

  • runngun30

    I’m a fan; I don’t think it’s unbelievable, but the kid is obviously extremely talented for his age. I think it’s also pretty clear that he’s a DVD basketball kid, as I was when I was younger (these drills are straight from Pistol Pete’s Homework Basketball and the Superhandles DVD set).

    Mute if you’re smart.

    How did I know that I was going to scroll down to the comments section and see comments similar to these. Gotta luv our society.

    GR8 vid. Props to the kid and his dad. Here’s to hoping they can use his ability and apparent love for the game, to attain some level of success and positive progression (education, work in basketball as a player or in some other capacity, etc.).

    Wow, that was hard for me to say <<<- [sarcasm]

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    The fact that he had to make some goofy-ass face and overdone movement after each pass in the “pickup” game he participated in kind of stinks of setup to prop the kid up.

  • True H

    amazing! What if there were entire street leagues of people doing this! Even crazier, what if there existed an entire video mix tape series detailing players that had comparable ball handling skills! Surely that would be news worthy!

  • Cizzo

    I like this Kid aleast he has work ethic….

  • http://sjfklfsl.com Jukai

    I’ve seen this before. From different kids. This isn’t new, really. For once, I’d like to see one of these dribbling child phenoms make the big leagues.

  • riggs

    yall cant be serious with some of these comments, its a freaking fluff piece on a local news network of course its going to be corny. At least give some props to the kid.

  • Kas

    I thought his name was Andy Garcia

  • http://www.slamonline.com AllBall247

    Co-sign Jukai. Anyone else remember Deshawn Augusto? I think that was his name. I remember a thing like this on him when he was 10, not 12, and he spent 4 hours a day in the gym, not 2.

    this kid has got game too, and he’s decent height for his age. He definitely can go D1 at his workrate.

  • JD

    Dont know why the reporter was so shocked by some of the stuff there like the bouncing the ball in sync, out of sync, and low and high everyone in my basketball team could do that, but i live in Europe, maybe its just here. Also, can someone put a rule which stops kids from being covered by the media up until there at least 16 cos its putting too much stuff into the kids head, and its too much too soon, in Europe, the idea of the press covering high school games would seem absolutely ridiculous especially when it comes to putting the games on national TV. I saw more than a game the other day and was really shocked to see LeBron was interviewed when he was a freshman.

  • J OK

    Wow, you guys are all really hating on a 12 year old kid? @Eboy youre a joke

  • http://www.slamonline.com Coney Islander

    One word, Duke.

  • JL

    he’s ok, but not a phenom. not sur why this got to go on tv.

  • BooYah

    As serious basketball players growing up we all did these drills. This is not special and it doesn’t mean you’ll have success in the sport. Good luck to him though.

  • Slips

    Look at all this hate from anonymous internet posters. It was a local broadcast highlighting a talented young kid. While it wasn’t out of this world impressive, it shows that he has the work ethic at a young age to succeed in the future.

    “The Professor had this going on too. What ever happened to him?”

    Did a bit of searching around. Here’s his website:

  • Groves

    The commentator is such an idiot

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    There’s that semi-anonymous Ebay hating again. You have a stalker, my man. Shout out to Cliffy Clinkscales!

  • sanman

    As he grows up other kids will catch up and improve. He might plateau. There would be a lot of pressure from his dad to perform. Too much can burn him out.
    Great handles tho, can he play D?

  • birdman

    just hooped with jashaun the other day. He needs to grow.. but he does have huge feet so theres hope. and yes he’s still VERY good.

  • http://slamonline.com dougiefreshh

    the funny thing is that he is going to perform at the all-star game in LA.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    Reminds me of that cat Disaster from Notic…outta Vancouver. Little man had handles for days..

  • Nick

    LOL at the guy riding the sheep!

  • smoov3

    This might be one of the funniest comment section I’ve seen!

  • Mike from Spain

    To tell the truth I started playing basketball when I was like 10, but never seriously, and I learned very recently (less than a year ago) that these drills were not just common practice for high school teams, I thought when I first saw them that I’d never have guessed they were possible to do. Props to the kid, and to all those here who knew better than me and did them drills…

  • http://slamonline.com Saviour

    All you JEALOUS haters watching this video and whining…while sitting in your deadend jobs wondering where your lives went, how did it get to this point that you’ve achieved nothing while this kid is getting hype @ 12? Shame on you all, jealousy is a b*tch, show some respect to a child who works hard.

  • http://akflf.com Jukai

    I mean, it’s not really about doing the drills, it’s about how fast he does them, guys. I know some of them are easier than they look (and some of them I still can’t do, sigh, my dribble has always sucked) but unless the camera is sped up, he’s got really impressive dribble speed.
    I’m not really sure that’ll translate into success, but it’s still impressive.

  • franko

    the professor + jason williams

    He is going to DUKE.

  • hadouken

    feature on that kid Jashaun Agosto by these same people.
    I gotta admit thats these kids comin up got some tight handle and obviously they can play well. However kids that are just as good, perhaps even better get no recognition.
