OK, it’s not the streets, but Jaylnn Staten is turning heads whenever she walks into a gym. That’s probably because she’s 6-years-old but plays more like she’s 16.
We’ve seen Staten’s performances before, and they were remarkable then. There are still the same questions here: Should a first-grader really be spending the kind of time needed to perfect the dribbling, shooting and defensive drills that she has? And yes, watch the whole video, because Staten is putting in some serious time on defensive slides.
Regardless, the results and the results, and they’re pretty entertaining to watch. We’re eager to see what Staten plays like when she actually is 16. Here’s a bet that she’ll be plenty comfortable handling the rock.
