THE COURT — Not all halftime events or entertainers are created equal.
I've been to enough college basketball games to know that a great halftime show can "pump up the jam," if you will, more than the actual game (and I'm sure the same applies to at least some NBA games too).
Bike tricks, trampolines, dancing seniors and dunking exhibitions have been among my favorites. But if I had been at this recent Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors game, I would certainly have a No. 1, all-time favorite halftime show.
In the video, you will meet 5-year-old Tavaris Jones, who performed as a special guest of the Cavaliers' dancing group, The Scream Team. Now, when I was 5, you could barely get me to greet another kid I hadn't met before. But as you will see, Tavaris does not have a shy-kid problem.
His sweet, cherubic face might fool you for about .5 seconds, but once the music starts, Tavaris dances with the swagger and confidence of a trained professional. He rolls out his smooth moves just as cool and calm as he can be.
As you probably guessed, this isn't his first big appearance in the spotlight. He first found widespread internet fame when appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" last year. In this follow-up interview with Ellen, you'll see he's just as precocious and confident as his dance moves suggest.
If Tavaris keeps living his life like this, he'll definitely get that "rolly, rolly" sooner rather than later.
