Some kids want to be like Mike. They wear his Jumpman clothes, they stick their tongue out when they shoot and they lower their backyard basketball hoop to work on their split-leg dunks.

Either this dad traveled back in time with his phone camera and caught a very eager child caught in the midst of MJ mania, or the kid is actually the biggest Jordan fan of his generation. It's the sort of enthusiasm so unbridled that the simple repetition of Jordan's name is all that's necessary. It's as if the child is celebrating his own birthday every five seconds. Which is just awesome.
