Are you ready for the NBA Finals? Anthony Kocmit definitely is; in fact, this awesome 4-year-old fan might be more excited by the prospects of a Cavs championship than the entire city of Cleveland combined.
Earlier this year, Kocmit became a familiar name in Cavaliers circles when a video of him recreating the pregame promo that accompanied LeBron James’ highly anticipated homecoming went viral.
The video, nearing 100,000 views on YouTube (we would’ve thought there were more Cavs fans out there), was full of exuberant celebrations, a flawless announcement of the starting five and some fancy dancing to his own version of “Turn Down For What.” (Sure, a 4 year old jamming out to a DJ Snake/Lil Jon song is a little weird, but, hey, this is the world we live in.)
Thanks to his announcing skills, Kocmit caught the eye of team owner Dan Gilbert and superstar LeBron James. He parlayed that into a trip to the Q in January, when the home crowd was treated to his amazing video. And now, months later, with the Cavs back in the Finals and in search of Cleveland’s first championship in 50 years, he’s just been featured in an ESPN segment that looks at his rise to Internet fame, something he seems to be coping with just fine.
Hey, even if he has a hard time pronouncing LeBron’s name, no one’s gonna doubt Kocmit’s superfan cred. Bring this kid to the NBA Finals and Riley Curry has some competition in the “Cutest Kid” department.
