This one-minute video of a couple of nine-year old ballers might be the most intense basketball I’ve seen all summer.
The kid in blue is Judah Ezrael Bontemps aka Juice and here’s the video caption from his IG account.
Talk Yo stuff. Before the shenanigans. The coach yellin at his player, telling him to tell Juice he’s better than him. Yelled at him to say it. Grown man trying to intimidate a child. My boy handle his own on the court without me. The @russwest44 effect. @lucas_morillo23 thanks for having my back and knocking down that shot. Right on time. #AAUBasketballNationals2017; #TrashTalkin; #BallisLife; #JuiceH2g; #CantCoachHeart; #HeartOverHeight; #JudahLionHearted
I’m just glad the parents and coaches stayed off the court and didn’t start a fight, which is sadly quite common at youth sporting events. Here’s a recent video of some immature parents running on the court and punching coaches during a fourth grade basketball game.
And here’s another video of a bunch of idiots acting like children in front of their children.
From the looks of Juice’s IG account, it seems like he’s surrounded by a positive group of family members and coaches. With that type of support and the skills displayed in the following video (The Maturation of a Point God), I have a feeling I might be hearing from Juice again.
