Future NBA Player?

1. What do you think about this kid playing on varsity at his age?
2. Are coaches allowed to be on the court this much in your area?

Too young for any of our Varsity in Alaska, even at the 1A level (60 students or less) Coach on the floor much more then we would allow.

I'm not a fan, either. But I'm also not a fan of having him drop 91 points on other middle school teams. It's a small private school, I guess I can see why they allow it.

But as the parent of a 12-year-old kid, I'm not sure I'd like my kid getting home at 10 or 10:30 after a Tuesday night road game.

Tough call, but I think if the kid can actually handle it, I'd let him try.

1. Don't care

2. Coaches generally aren't that bad in my area.

Question

Did any of you notice how many illegal numbered jerseys there were on this kid's team?

This is allowed because the school is not part of the Florida state association. They don't have to play by FED rules or eligibility guidelines for the state. It's glorified rec ball and you can tell by the facilities and level of play.
