Young fans celebrate Harrison twins’ commitment to Kentucky [Video]

Oct 6, 2012, 2:21 PM EST

There’s not much else that’s better than seeing young kids get into sports. The latest example? The Harrison twins, Aaron and Andrew, committed to Kentucky on Thursday and one proud parent filmed his children as they watched the decision live.

The fun starts around the 0:41 mark, so feel free to skip to it. The funny thing is, there were probably some grown men and women with the same reaction as these youngsters when the twins made their commitment to Big Blue Nation. Whether or not they threw stuffed animals in the air out of pure joy, I can’t be sure.

    Having your kids get into sports is a good thing. Having your kids getting interested in the one-and-done, just-prepping-for-the-pros insanity of “amateur” sports? Not so much.

    manchestermiracle………..follow this thru. A kid likes to play a game, practices, works hard, is successful. Maybe he/she gets a college scholarship; that is great. Same kid practices and turns out to be super-good; good enough to be a pro basketball player………..making — say $4-$5 million a year. What do you advise the super good kid…………..to turn down this kind of money? Stay in school for 3 more years; turn down $12-$15 million (don’t even concern yourself with getting injured? Some people, even in professional careers, never make $4-$5 million in a lifetime.

    I wish the system would be different. However, the NBA rules dictate the present predicament, not the colleges, not the kids. Advising 19-year olds that are good enough to play in the NBA to not be a one-and-done is simply…………stupid.
