Kevin Durant Jr - 6'5 sixth grader 7ft 3 16 year old Connor Vanover Shows 2 days ago   01:46

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).

The kid acts like he's big shit!...he has a huge advantage now! many shit heads like him turned bust..Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum, Shawn Bradley.. injuries and greater competition. That growth rate and constant basketball could end his career before it starts...or make it short and unproductive..Take it easy kid, someone should educate him on being s student of the game.....and bring him down a notch or two...for his greater development!...Mind, Body, Soul, Loot and Hoes... on and off the court, the future!

If I was a foot taller in the sixth grade, I'd still be a foot shorter than him.

7ft 3 16 year old Connor Vanover Shows Kevin Durant Jr - 6'5 sixth grader 2 days ago   01:48

7'3 Connor Vanover may be best known for his stature. Recently, the 16 year old 10th grader has elevated his game while playing on the national circuit with playing with USA Basketball and with Arkansas Wings (AAU). His overall skills have improved noticeably, especially his shooting (range).
Considered one of the top 20 players in the Class of 2018, Vanover was just recently named to the 2015-16 USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team. He was a member of the 2015 USA Basketball U16 National Team that captured the gold medal with a perfect 5-0 record at the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.
Ballislife's cameras caught Vanover's first games of his 10th grade high school season when Arkansas Baptist High School (Ark.) was playing in the 10th Annual Coventry Health Tournament of Champions in Washington, IL against strong regional and national competition.
Named to the All-tournament team, Vanover averaged over 20 PPG.
Last season as a freshman in 2014-15, he aided his team to a 25-8 record, the 2015 district and regional titles and the Arkansas 4A tournament semifinals.
Connor averaged 14.8 ppg, 9.4 rpg and 3.2 bpg, while starting all 33 games.
If one Vanover on a team isn't enough, Connor has twin brothers who are 7-foot and 7-foot-1. 7ft brother Brandon is a senior and Connor's teammate at Baptist.
Following his 9th grade season, Connor picked up high major offers from Ole Miss, Alabama and Arkansas. Expect that list to grow!
After seeing Connor Vanover open his season, we expect to see Arkansas Baptist contending for an Arkansas state title.
Check out some raw footage from Vanover in action at the Coventry Health Tournament of Champions in Washington, IL.
