'Obsessed With the Sport': 2-Year-Old Prodigy Shows His Basketball Skills

A 2-year-old from Auckland, New Zealand, is showing some serious promise as a basketballer, with what his mom called his "obsession" with the sport meaning he can already nail shots "like a pro". Video by mom Jennifer Nouri shows little Kiyan showing his moves on the netball court of a local school, repeatedly nailing his shots. "He is obsessed with the sport. We get told often that he must have been a basketballer in his previous life," Nouri told Storyful. She added that Kiyan is now aged two years and two months, but has been "shooting like a pro" since he was just one. "He plays every single day (most times several times a day) as he is obsessed with the sport," Nouri said, even though neither she nor his father played basketball.
