Incredibly Earnest Preteen Coach Is YouTube Gold

Illustration for article titled Incredibly Earnest Preteen Coach Is YouTube Gold

Coach Noah might be the greatest thing to happen to basketball since the shot clock. You only think I'm kidding.


Noah Chang loves basketball. F'ing loves it. Enough to put together a 10-minute video of him taking a little girl to school in his driveway, all the while showing us the basics and throwing in some motivational quotes.

Some highlights:

•It is physically impossible for Noah to shoot without saying "He looks...he shoots...and he scores."
•"It's my favorite sport. Why?" (Looks off camera for line.) "Because it's very exciting." (Makes layup on 6-foot basket.)
•Noah lists for us the equipment needed to play basketball. I would have thought this was obvious, but I never would have thought to include "socks."
•He cruelly plays keep-away from his sister, for at least 30 seconds past the point of awkwardness, in the name of showing us how to dribble.
•Noah wants to show us how to dunk, but warns us that he might be unable because he's "not so tall." He tries anyway, and fails.
•There's a freaking outtake reel at the end of the video!


Coach Noah leaves us with the words of Michael Jordan, but I'd like to leave you with the words of Noah Chang:

He looks...he shoots...and he scores."
