Horrible mechanics, poor balance, no follow-through, and too reliant on support with his left hand.

Beer pong farm system.

Wow, that kid has some skills! My 4-year old still can't make a basket on an 8-ft rim, and we've been playing since October.

That said, anyone who names their kid Titus should be banished.

An infinite number of monkeys by any other name would smell as sweet when edited for YouTube.

Did you watch to the end where he sinks 7 in a row without an edit?

Clearly, the "kid" is a robot.

Now post a bunch of videos of 12 year-olds blowing out the ACLs during middle-school basketball games.

This is the best thing ever. That look of joy on his face ... so great.

Mad skillz.

For the 7-foot rim, just the fact that he can throw the ball that high is amazing.

Titus??? Damn. Why didn't I think of calling one of my kids Titus?

Sure, he can shoot, but can he dribble, and I don't mean while he is drinking from his sippy cup.

That, even factoring in the infinite-monkey theorem, is incredibly impressive. I wonder what the chances are that we'll be watching this video 16 years from now as this kid is drafted by an NBA team?

I particularly like how into it his brothers are on the video.

Can't tell Mommy about the gremlins in the house. Everywhere. In the mirrors, in the fridge. Under my bed and brother's bed and Mommy and Daddy have the biggest one of all.

Must keep shooting baskets to keep them safe. Can never miss. Never, ever, ever.

Sure he's good, but he still poops his pants.

I can't imagine they'd be able to persuade him to keep going if he wasn't all that good and they were editing down to his few successes. Either way, he's either really, really persistent, really good, or both. Plus, the 7-foot one, wow.

That kid is going to grow up either to be an NBA player or a physicist.

Or both.

I had a friend growing up who was freakishly good at anything involving "aim" He could shoot NBA 3 pointers all day long, but wasn't very good at the rest of basketball. Also scarily good at pool, darts, and bowling. Playing quarters with him was especially brutal. He didn't really think much of this "skill" and mostly wondered why the rest of us sucked at everything.

In his first 24 months, this young man surpassed the entire athletic output of my 37 years on this planet.

Damn, that baby is doing some serious work.

I'm convinced some people are just born with insane hand-eye coordination, like some people born with perfect pitch. I spent far too long trying to recreate ping pong trick shots when I was younger

Yeah, but what when adolescence hits and then he can't manage to walk across a room without tripping over something? Or was that just my life.

Not just that, but the balls are different sizes (and presumably weights) and one is a miniature football.

My first thought was also "Ok, you can do anything with time and edits", but thinking about it, kids that age aren't usually going to have the patience to get this on film, if you have to do it a hundred times. If he wasn't sinking those shots, he's likely to get bored and go do something else.
