The Best 10-year-old Hoopster in the US?
Eli Saslow writes in The Washington Post about 10-year-old basketball phenom Justin Jenifer (“Is There Such a Thing as a Perfect 10?”).
It’s hard to belive that a 10-year-old kid, still in elementary school, is being watched closely by high school coaches and shoe companies, but after watching some clips of Jenifer’s game, I can see why.
At just 4’6″, Jennifer is an expert dribbler, has the jumpshot of an adult, can shoot the 3, and is an 80% freethrow shooter. There is no telling what time and inches will turn him into.
Thanks to the guys over at Sports Law Blog for the intelligent discussion of the NBA age rule and the mention of Jenifer.
