Did I not tell you that the Good Job, Good Effort Kid would be legendary in less than 24 hours?

Here is my exact quote:

I don’t know if the kid is trolling or just trying to be encouraging, but whatever the case the kid is about to become an Internet legend in…

3……

2……

1…….

Always trust Robstradamous, here is what the kid had to say.

The face behind that voice is 9-year-old Jack Meyer.

“I said ‘Good job, good effort’ and Terrel (Harris) noticed me and gave me a thumbs up,” he said.

The video has gone viral, and Jack’s enthusiasm has inspired a twitter account, @goodjobkid, with more than 3,500 followers.

Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ball with his dad, and enjoys collecting the team’s memorabilia in his room. His Heat-themed bed is “super cozy,” he says.

So when people have the audacity to question whether the young Coral Gables hoops fan was mocking the Heat, the passion in his voice makes it obvious where he stands.

“LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem. Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games,” he said.

Sounds like a nice kid, hopefully the Heat care as much as he does.
