Since most native Clevelanders would now rather burn his jerseys after fleeing to Miami rather than admit Lebron as a native from the state of Ohio, maybe everyone should embrace Wyatt, all of 8 years old, as the next big thing to come out of the Buckeye State.

Ketaan is a rising 3rd grader for Martin Luther King Academy in Toledo, and  is so much better than his own age group that he regularly plays against opponents that are 4-5 years his senior.
