For many, mad basketball skills are something of a DNA blessing and hard work. It is difficult to have control over the ball on the court in sneakers and shorts, but try doing it in a dress, tiara, and sneakers and still managing to dominate. Well, for fourth-grade New Orleans student, Zaila Avant Garde, the dress, tiara, and sneakers only accentuate the fact that she’s the “queen of basketball”.
With a dream to play in the WNBA, this rising star has been showing off her incredible dribbling skills for years.
