Back in 1989, the world was introduced to Doogie Howser. Before his 11th birthday, Doogie had already graduated from Princeton. By the time he was 14, he was the world's youngest licensed M.D. He grew up to be,'Legend... wait for it... dary'. Doogie was the epitome of role models, he made bookworms cool 18 years and 5 days before The Big Bang Theory hit our screens. I am willing to say 'Doogie, is smarter than Sheldon Cooper'.
The deliberation over Doogie vs. Sheldon, would be as enthralling as Spiderman vs Wolverine. The message is clear, the key to success in life, is either hit the books, or obtain meta-human abilities. For us mortals, the path to greatness is limited to: Study hard, do well in school, succeed in life.
What if t.v was wrong? Imagine if, the real secret to success, was 'go outside and play'. Jaden Newman is not a child genius, and she does not have meta-human powers (to the best of our knowledge). Jaden is a real life 9 year old girl. Despite being in the fourth grade, she is the point guard for Downey Christrian High varsity basketball team, with 12th graders aged 16 - 18.
With averages of 15 points and 8 assists per game, it's no surprise that she's already being serenaded by scouts from the University of Miami. Jaden has scored 63 points in a single game, but that was against boys, so we're not sure if it counts.
Think you could beat a 9 year old? Think again!
Magic had Bird, Federer had Nadal, Ali had Forman, who will rival Jaden?
