This 6-year-old girl is better at basketball than some high school players

Most of the time, professional athletes begin their sport that they are passionate about at a very young age. They push themselves to be the very best that they can be and sometimes, they are caught on video and people lose their minds.

In the case of six-year-old Jaliyah Manuel from New Orleans, Louisiana, it is no different. Her father regularly posts videos of her ball-handling skills on Instagram and the Christmas break from school didn’t stop her grind.

If you didn’t think her skills couldn’t translate, here is a video of her dominating during a winter league.

Yep, even if WNBA isn’t watched all that much, she’s probably going to be there one day. I’d expect Geno Auriemma to be calling her in the next few years.
