Buckets grew up in Phoenix with nine brothers and sisters. If you're watching his family's home videos and wondering which one he is, look for the five-year-old who cut a hole in his dad's hat so he could shoot tennis balls through it. It must've helped, because years of practice made him one of the most accurate shooters around (hence the name “Buckets”). He can fill it up in many different ways, like when he broke the Guinness World Records® record for the most basketball underhanded half-court shots in one minute, dropping six – one more than the previous record (he actually made those six shots in 46 seconds). He eats a bowl of cereal every night before he goes to bed. Maybe that's the secret.
