Rumble / Sports NewsBasketball prodigy Enzo Lee pulls off an unbelievable move at the USBA Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina. The next NBA superstar is right here!

Nothing is better than seeing young kids play the sports and games they love and see them passionate about it. The young prodigy in the video, Enzo Lee, an 8-year-old ballplayer, shows off his serious skills in a youth basketball game. He and his team were participating in the USBA Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina. USBA is the United States Basketball Association where young kids from elementary school levels all the way to high school can compete with their teams.

Enzo obviously is a young star who won victory for his team thanks to his devastating move. This move is known as "breaking the opponent's ankles". Obviously, not literally breaking them, but the trick when a basketball player is able to trick the defender out and the defender falling it down is known as “breaking your ankles”. Enzo gave his defender a little spin and then a quick change of direction to fool his defender and make him fall to the floor. Very unfortunate for the other kid but it happens, and every basketball player will tell you that it happens to everyone eventually. Nothing to be too ashamed about. Luckily, the other kid didn’t seem to phased by the move and was able to get back up and help his team on the inbound play. This shall make the young man work harder to become a better defender.

Now for Enzo, this move cleared an open lane to the basket and led to an easy score for the young hooper and his team.

It is not often you see a young player with this much skill and technique. These are definitely moves that older mores seasoned ball players use. He will definitely have a future in basketball if he keeps up his training and learning. He has got some great footwork, great ball handling, and a quick change of pace. It is clear he had been working very hard on his craft and is putting it on full display in front of the whole crowd. It seems like young kids are becoming more and more talented as the days go by. With social media and the internet we are now allowed to see these young phenoms from a young age as they gain popularity whether it be by video highlights, or Instagram posts, or any other popular social media sharing device.

These kids are allowed to see their idols on television or the internet much more easily now than years back when popular players like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, or Shaq were in the league. With a press of a button these kids can see highlights of their favorite players and see their styles, so we would not be surprised if Enzo Lee is searching his favorite player’s crossover moves and emulating them in games. This is the reason why the youth players are becoming so good since they can easily watch their favorite players and try out their moves in games. As a basketball fan, it is so amazing seeing how young players can be so good so early and watch them improve. Not to mention who doesn’t love a good crossover video, it gets the entire crowd and team pumped up and we're sure it had all the kids at Enzo’s school waiting for him to come so they could get an autograph!
