Kevin Durant Jr - 6'5 sixth grader Emoni Bates has CRAZY POTENTIAL - NEO Youth Elite

  • Published on:  7/14/2016
  • The next Kevin Durant may just be a kid from Michigan. 6'5 sixth grader Emoni Bates has taken the youth basketball scene by storm and is being called Kevin Durant Jr. Emoni first gained national attention after a video released by D Rich TV. Bates has a smooth outside jumper, ridiculous ball handling skills for his size, and plays the game in an eerily similar way to Kevin Durant.The best is yet to come from Emoni as he will clearly still add speed and athleticism to his game in coming years. At the NEO Youth Elite Camp the Class of 2022 prospect was unstoppable. Bates also had a big time showing at the 2016 Midwest Nationals where he ran with super team We All Can Go (WACG).
