The New York Knicks got clobbered by the Cleveland Cavaliers 126-94 on Wednesday night, and Knicks star Carmelo Anthony had a disappointing night—8 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.
But a different Anthony was the star of the night—Melo’s son Kiyan.
The 9-year-old was showing off his handles before the game, nearly copying the pre-game dribbling routine of Golden State Warriors two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry.
Kiyan plays for the dominant New York Gauchos AAU team, and he apparently put in a lot of practice time last summer. Watching the highlight tape below, you wouldn’t know he’s playing with kids a year older than he is.

Like any serious baller, Kiyan has been working hard on his handles to get better. Maybe he will follow his dad’s footsteps and be the next Knicks superstar.
