Rising kid on the block- Kawanopado’s Michael Jordan

Ghana are not short of basketball talents as young Michael Jordan weaved magic at the recently concluded Indomie Community Dunks.

The 8-year-old was the toast of fans with some sublime performances that got his opponents scratching their head for answers.

Jordan emerged from the ranks of Kawanopado and never disappointed as he exhibited performances that charmed many at the centre court of the El-wak sports stadium.

The exciting centre has been practicing with the ball since he was 3 and has since not looked back as he continues to develop his talent.

Head trainer Claudius Thompson is among those who have persistently encouraged him to play basketball when he was at that tender age.

“I know basketball because my father encouraged me to play. Though, at the first I didn’t know even simple rules of the game like how to dribble a ball. Today I am getting better even at age 8,” Jordan said on Basketball TV

“The coach is not using me much because he thinks I have a lot t learn from my big brothers. To be honest with I am enjoying it.

“Some of us are the future of this team and hopefully by next year, I should have developed better than I am today.”

His touches and understanding of the game at that age, surprised many local fans and Jordan is seen as the future of eventual winners Kawanopado.
