A 4-year-old basketball phenom from North Carolina has already drawn the attention of an NBA legend and has big plans to follow in the footsteps of his favorite player, the Oklahoma Thunder’s Kevin Durant, according to Good Morning America.



“He can emulate his free throw regime exactly,” Josiah Brown’s father, Demetrius Brown, told ABC News of his son's ability to copy Durant's famous free throw prep. “He has been doing that since he was one.”

Josiah, whom his dad describes as average height and weight for a 4-year-old but with an athletic build, is already playing with kids as old as 9 at his local YMCA in Wilmington, North Carolina.
