Slam dunkin’ 6-year-old New Orleans girl is a global b-ball star

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - She's just 6 years old.  She was born with a basketball in her hands.

She even sleeps with a basketball every night.  That's after she brushes her teeth.

She's got 65 million hits from her internet videos.  What she does in the videos is dribble a basketball.

Her name is Jaliyah Manuel.  She goes to Belle Chasse Primary School, near New Orleans.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood  gets a lesson on the court from Jaliyah.

Jaliyah's dad has had her on the basketball court since she was 1.  That's why she's a star.

But it all leaves her mom wondering if her little girl is actually from another planet.
