Elijah Bender, an athletic 2-year-old from Kentucky, appears to have a bright future in sports ahead of him. Recently, his mom Kelsey Bender captured a few incredible videos of her son sinking baskets in their living room without even so much as a glance, and we have a hunch the scouts are taking notice.
"He just [shoots baskets] all the time," Kelsey told POPSUGAR. "My dad is a football coach so they're always passing a ball around. When I tell him it's time for bed, he looks at me and says, 'Get your hands ready,' like, let me pass a few more times. He always watches games on TV and he tries to copy whatever they are doing: tackles, touchdowns, free throws, slam dunks, even slo-mo, which is hilarious to watch. He's sharp and he picks up on everything he sees."
Although there's no doubt that Elijah is well on his way to an NBA career, the mom joked that she's a little nervous about what happens when the seasons change.
"Our days consist of finding a game on TV for him to watch . . . I don't know what we are going to do when football and basketball are over," said Kelsey. "I don't think our living room is big enough for baseball. I can imagine how well it's going to go over when we lose a window!"
