    runs a mile in under 5 minutes at the age of 11! Not bad at all. He has dribbling skillz too.

    If you read how old members here describe themselves when "they were young", this kid is slightly below average.

    Not really. Head to a Nike Junior BBall camp and you'll see more than a few kids who can do what this kid does. I'm not saying the kids doesn't have skills. I'm just saying that it's not as uncommon as you might think. A lot of that dribbling you see is fairly standard dribbling drills that many kids learn.

    Honestly this kid is good but nothing special (although his running abilities are quite amazing)...but in terms of basketball skills there are kids all around the world that can do what he is doing. Hmm...i might have come off as a jerk by saying this but it's my personal opinion.

    I'll be impressed when he does something in a sport that matters. You know, the one with Nadal in it.
