    Is There Such a Thing as a Perfect 10?
    Basketball Prospect Courted While Still In Elementary School


    I know, I know. It's a travesty. These people are bringing this kid along way too fast. But there is video on the WaPo's Web site. He is pretty good.

    I can't bring myself to watch a video of a 10-year-old basketball player. Childhood should be childhood, not adults angling (is that what they're doing?) to make money off the kid. Different thing, but Drew Barrymore was hooked on coke at 10.

    nothing like treating kids as money even at 10. what's next? find a good kickball player in kindergarten recess and call him the next pele?

    Well, I'll do out to say it: Drew Barrymore was really, really hot at 15.

    I feel dirty. And all I did was READ THE STORY.

    She's not bad there. And if she went "classic" more, she'd be golden.


    But her hippie look is weird, and her chin just frightens me. It's like if Jay Leno had a chin implant, and they put it in perpendicular to his face.

    So if you're 14 and college coaches haven't heard of you, it's too late?

    Not going to touch that link. Subject's got some Jean Benet creepiness to it.
