Is This 7’1″ 8th Grader With a Buttery Jump Shot the Next Dirk Nowitzki?

His name is Connor Vanover. He is a 7′ 1″ 8th grader from Little Rock, Arkansas, and although he may not be able to jump out of the gym yet, his jumper is incredibly useful. For a 13-year-old of his height, his level of athleticism¬†and coordination can’t help but remind you of Dirk Nowitzki.

Such height. Very youth. So Dirk.
