Future NBA Star?

Grayson LOVES basketball! He recently told us his goal is to play in the NBA. Now, I'm all for setting lofty goals and doing whatever can be done to attain them... however, genetics do play a role and seeing as he is the smallest (but fastest) boy on his team, he'll probably need to grow at least 6 feet this next year to even be considered!

Grayson plays point guard on his team and does a great job at feeding the ball to teammates that are open (and taller). Here's one of his favorite outside shots that he's worked on since it might be his "ticket" to playing in the NBA if he doesn't grow...

His team won their last game and only lost 2 games throughout 2 seasons.

He's about 90% from the outside. (It would be fun to have an NBA star in the family...)
P.S. 4th grade boys dribble much better than the Laurels.

Does Grayson put his tongue into his cheek too? I've never noticed that before. It's fun having a future NBA star as a neighbor.

Jen - isn't that hilarious? I noticed that too for the first time after you mentioned Mitchell did it also. Maybe it's pure concentration connection with the ball...

How tall would the additional 6 feet make him? That's hilarious!

Gotta love a boy who can dream big. If he's as tenatious as you and John at reaching your goals he'll probably achieve it someday. Cute boy.

I love that last picture!!!! I am always happy when I see kids doing what they love and getting excited about it! As long as Grayson is taller than Bailey, he's good to go! That prom picture will look a whole lot better! Hee Hee

"It would be fun to have an NBA start in the family" - and it would be a great retirement plan :)
