When he purchased a basketball goal for his sons last Christmas, local man Randy Kepshire thought it would lead to great success on the court for Randy Jr., age 13, and nine-year old Harold. Instead, the hoop, located in front of the family’s home at 345 Durly Court, has gone nearly a full calendar without a single shot being made into it.
Nearly a year after the purchase, Kepshire estimates more than 2,000 shots have been missed by the two boys.
Kepshire was skeptical of his sons’ athletic ability when he purchased the hoop December 9, 2012, and is now convinced that they should be discouraged from sports altogether.
“I wanted to raise the next Michael Jordan, but these kids play more like Estelle Jordan,” said Kepshire, while pointing to his next-door neighbor, Estelle Jordan.
