When Stephen Curry noticed a kid copying each of his power moves

Recently, Filayyyy, a sports entertainment channel, dug up a crazy video and posted it on their official account. The 37-second film showed an Asian kid hooping ditto like Steph Curry. The kid, certainly below the age of 10, proved too good for his opponents to guard him. 

The prodigy had the exact elbow moves, the ankle breakers, the back dribbles, and the three-point shooting wrist gesture Curry possesses. Wearing a #30 yellow jersey, this kid was so cold impressive that his video caught the attention of former Warrior Baron Davis, too. Take a look – 

Upon coming across the video with over a million views, even Steph Curry reacted. The 33-YO wrote in his story, “He [kid] really took the whole *bag* and then some *chillies*.”
