So Myck Kabongo, Cory Joseph, Andrew Wiggins and, now, R.J. Barrett, you can all move on over. Elijah Fisher is there to hold down the great north.

Here’s Fisher from a recent tournament, showcasing some of the skills that made him a breakout star before he even hit the spring AAU circuit.

Does anyone else see shades of Vince Carter in Fisher’s game?

No, it’s not fair for one eighth grader to be that much more talented than everyone else on the court, but that advantage will wane as Fisher advances in age. At least, it will decrease to a degree. But if Fisher is truly as talented as he has shown so far, all bets are off to just how far he can fly.
