So the 14 year old on Oakland...

How the hell did this happen, is 14 yr old Tyler Harmon just that good that he can play in the NXL with guys who have years of experience on him? I am just confused because I've got 3 years on this kid and I'm not in the nxl .

Ya, form, gun skills, logic and working under pressure are all a thing of the past.

Maybe they want to find a fast small kid with moderate skills they can mold an NXL killer. Plus he probally knows people you dont.

Haha, ya, I was just giving you a hard time.

I'm not dissing on this kid guys, I'm just curious if any of you had an inside scoop on him.

I know tyler personally.

That kid is the biggest baller you will ever meet. Not only is he one of the best players I know, he will probably be one of the top 10 paintballers ever, if not the best.

Look how young he is and who he plays for. He can only get better.

Much love Tyler!

No doubt hes good, but you can't be comparing him to the best when he probally hasn't played the best in any national tournaments. Untill he helps Oakland make it to the top again this year you can't compare him to the big boys.

You guy's dont even know this kid or have ever seen him play so don't say hes not ready to play with the big boys yet.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Bob has a better eye for talent than ya'll do.

And to say Tyler hasn't been playing with the best? Are we forgetting that he played for Twisted last year and got a lot of practice in with Bobby's guys as well as helped lead twisted to a d2 series title? I guess so

He's the short kid towards the end of the vid.....wearin a twisted jersey from last year. He's in a standup then bumps to the ladder and eventually gets bunkered.

To try and say he could be one of the best ever is the worst curse that could happen to him. Go look at all the people who they claimed would be the greatest football and basketball players ever! Most of the #1 draft pics have either flopped (as in they are just another pro athlete with average pro talent) or injured themselves to the point they aren't playing.

hopefully this kid has karma

true that about carson palmer.....but did you ever hear of Lebron James? Only 4 other people in the NBA averaging atleast 20ppg.....5 rebounds per game....and 5 assist per game. Prolly one of the most hyped sports players of all time and he has definitely lived up to and beyond the hype, despite getting screwed out of an all star bid.

I agree with what you're saying about people not living up to hype....but as long as Tyler doesnt let it get to his head(and he hasnt yet) then he'll be fine.

I think Vince is right in calling him this when you take into consideration his age. He may not be the 'best', but since he is only 14, it sort of levels out.
