Two Balls Segment On KOMO TV Is Pun-Tastic, Kind Of Awesome

KOMO TV's Eric Johnson hosts his pet segment, Eric's Little Heroes, highlighting youth athletics. Johnson typically goes with comedy, showing the lighter side of youth sports. Occasionally, the segment features an up-and-coming talent with either a quirky skill or talent beyond their age. This segment, and its hilarious catch phrase, captures both. Behold! Two Balls!

Besides the obvious double entendre -- get it! TWO BALLS -- the kid has some serious game.  And, of course, Johnson -- also ironic considering the subject -- sticks the dismount, finishing with a "holy crap!" His Little Heroes segments are always great, but this one may have been the best.

On a serious note, the player in the video is Wisconsin transplant Jordan McCabe. The full segment can be found here, and highlights all his fundamental basketball skills. He can pass, dribble and shoot the lights out. Keep an eye on McCabe as he heads toward high school. At 12 years old, it looks like he has a bright future ahead of him.
