11 year old DUNKING sensation Adrian Moore!!!!!

rivals.yahoo.com/highschool/blog/prep_rally/post/Seventh-grader-throws-down-thunder-dunk-on-a-fas

He is a 6'3'' 11 year old sensation who is being recruited by Baylor as we speak.

Was O.J. Mayo doing this at 11yrs old?????

all I have to say is, so

all I have to say is, so what? Dunking doesn't mean anything, i guy like Steve Nash never dunks but he's one of the best players in the NBA. Basketball is a game of skill and a guy dunking shows nothing about how good he is at basketball.

Dude have you ever dunked if

Dude have you ever dunked if not I don't think you know how big that is a personal achievement. Who plays ball and does not want to dunk besides Gary Payton? Man that is just a preview of the potential the young boy has to reach. Everyone was woopin and hollering LeBron James and O.J. Mayo at a early age. Why can't the young boy get his recognition for his abilities as well and might I remind you he is YOUNGER than both LeBron and O.J.

I don't think i've EVER

I don't think i've EVER seen an 11 year old dunk before, thanks for sharing, eventhough this doesn't mean much in terms of skill level and overall development, the kid still deserves some credit, come on now.

When I was in middle school

our P.E. teacher would tell us about Darrell Griffith ripping it off in sixth grade- he said Darrell could throw it down with no problems- Darrell later stared at Louisville and Utah!

I did hear that OJ was

I did hear that OJ was dunking off vert in the sixth grade, but he had already hit his growth spurt by the time he finished middle school. This kid is impressive no doubt, but i've seen so many guys who can do unbelievable things at an early age but the problem is we have no way of projecting how much they will improve. Who knows he might only grow another couple inches.

It is great accomplishment

It is great accomplishment and this is a kid why are people being so critical like it is a big debate that a kid at 11 dunking like he is and also showing pretty good ball handling skills for 11 year old cept for the off hand thing. Even if he never makes it to the NBA, this is impressive. I am pretty sure that if he does not get any injuries basketball will be a part of his life maybe overseas or something which is not that bad. oversea ball players can make 200,000 dollars and more. I would love to play ball and make 200,00 dollars if I could.

Thats pretty cool, most 7th

Thats pretty cool, most 7th graders are 12 or 13 though unless he skipped a grade, I remember Vince Carter saying in an interview a few years ago that he got his first dunk in 6th grade, so it's not un heard of especially since he is already 6'3''. I could dunk a tennis ball as a 5'10'' 13 year old from Kansas, so as impressive as it is, it's something that I'm sure a lot of kids can do in the 12-14 year old range, they just probably aren't on the internet and the caliber of player being recruited by Baylor as a 7th grader.

It wasn't just him dunking

It wasn't just him dunking but the dunk he did is a pretty advanced dunk. It is not that greatest thing I ever saw but I think if more people gave props instead of hating life would be so much better. I tend to keep my mouth shut about stuff that does not excite me because what is the point.

That's a big accomplishment

That's a big accomplishment on a personal level to people who know how to dunk. Doesn't say much about how good he is or how good he will be but this post isn't about that. Its about someone that young dunking which is very impressive. Let the haters hate, those are the guys who more than likely can't dunk nor has any game to speak of.

Kid Adrian More is age 13 not 11

Adrian Moore is a great kid. Very respectful and humble. While I believe he will be a great ball player in time, he does have some more work to be done. I have no doubt that he will. Give the kid a chance to grow, and thick of it as if he was your son or child. The truth is that he is 13 or going on thirteen, if he isn't already. Was held back one grade, but is still a fantastic ball player for his age. Just wait and see, he will be something special in this game.
