It has often been said that the younger they start they better they are. This has been true for the like of Michael Jordon, Tiger Woods and countless other famous sports stars. If this is indeed the case then, Julian Newman a fifth-grader from Orlanda, Florida (yup Hollywood couldn’t have scripted this one better) is set to be one of the greatest basketball players the sport has ever seen.

Not just other fifth-graders though, that wouldn’t be amazing enough, Julian was set to test his skill in a Hot Sauce vs. And1 exhibition match. These two all-star teams are both dripping with talent and feature some of the most talented street basketball players in the world.
