Stephon Marbury's eight-year-old son seems to have this basketball thing down fairly well.

Jocks and Stiletto Jill (h/t Next Impulse Sports) spotted the following Instagram video posted to Marbury's wife's account.

If you ever wondered whether Marbury's progeny might pick up his dribbling skills, wonder no longer.

At eight, this kid has already surpassed my best day on the basketball court. I'm not trying to be kind to the little kid or undersell what I could do on the court; this kid just made my ankles ache from a few seconds of hardcore dribbling.

Some of you may have forgotten about Marbury, who last played in the NBA back in 2009 with the Boston Celtics.

Since that time he has bumped around the Chinese Basketball Association, where he rose to the type of prominence and fame that had waned for him back in the States.

If you needed a reminder of just how elusive Marbury could be with the ball, Sport Science broke down that particular crossover (yes, they have officially covered everything imaginable on that show):

Tasha Marbury's Instagram caption reads:

"Let Me Be Great" - #JayZ #Dedication, #passion,#endurance, and #hardwork at 8yrs old. My son Stephon Marbury II aka Turkeycultivating #greatness...#Family #Hoops #Basketball

At eight, this kid is as dedicated to working on his game as I was to finding the best cartoons on TV. We assume that is Marbury off-camera encouraging his son, crafting a basketball machine that will one day shred ankles all over the nation.

If you are looking for your dribbles, check out Marbury Jr. He seems to have all of them.
