    what i dont like is that their parents doing that...

    using him as advertising and such

    but... that is pretty cool!

    when he said talent i dont think that is it- its like 5 year old martial artists, you train from when your young. parents probably forced the kid to play!

    he has promise. many years of practice to go

    The kid's only 3? I'm 33 and I can't make 2 in a row. Good for him. Reebok's check probably already has his college paid for.

    yeah i'm with you, a 3 year old boy should not be a arketing product...

    I am not sure, but i saw an advertising spot once...it was about a man called "The Bretzel-Boy", there were many NBA-Stars playing in the spots like Scotty Pippen ("If Bretzel-Boy won't play i'll finish my career" - great! )
    In one of the spots the man (not a Basketballplayer-Body at all) answered some questions during an interview with a tv-team. While answering he throwed Basketballs over his shoulders to the basket, which was about 10 meters behind him. And every shot was succesful...this looked real without any hints being a video-manipulation...

    10 years after Jurassic Park it'S possible to make things like this in my eyes...it's not easy, but hey, who said that it is?

    First off, if he is gonna be a basketball sensation he has to be really strong (like Michael Jordan, a great athlete). He seems to have this pegged already so only time will tell if he is gonna rock the basketball world.

    And since he is throwing it with a behind the head full body motion its much easier for him. Thats why soccer players can toss the ball in from the sidelines and get it over halfway across the width of the field, more if they take a running start.

    fozzy- i saw this kid on leno a while ago, i'm pretty sure he's the real deal.

    i'm just hoping his parents aren't living vicariously through him. that would be sad.

    I am still amazed by the skills...i mean i don't know if any of you guys know what 3 year old kids are capable of and what not....i know...that's why i was so suspiciously...in fact for me the more realistic theory was the thing i believed in. And it was more realistic to fake this with software than having a 3 year old boy with this skills :eek:
