This 2-year-old may be the next big thing in basketball.
Kelsey Bender was shocked when her toddler, Elijah, made basket after basket. What made it even more amazing was that he did it without looking! The proud mom was recording her son on Snapchat when he nailed the shot for the first time and, to her surprise, it just kept happening.
“We figured he’d miss but he’s pretty good,” Kelsey told “Good Morning America.” “I was recording on Snapchat…and he just did it. I was like, ‘That’s crazy, that’s never going to happen again.”
Since then though, the toddler from Kentucky has sunk at least 5 baskets while looking at his mom who is recording him. The videos have the internet buzzing.
Elijah has loved basketball ever since his grandparents gifted him a basketball hoop. He has perfected his skills by watching and imitating the pros. “He’s sharp and he picks up on everything he sees,” his mom explained.
