Kai Sotto's skill set proves that he is very well on his way to becoming a unicorn.
The human highlight reel that is Kai Sotto just continues to add to his mixtape.
Sotto, the 7'1" wunderkind of the Ateneo Blue Eaglets showed off his dribbling display en route to a fastbreak jam against Xavier School in the Jesuit Athletic Meet (JAM) 2018 in Cebu Monday.

Just by himself, the UAAP Season 80 Juniors' Basketball Finals MVP took matters into his own hands by dribbling the length of the floor before gathering with two massive hops, then threw down the two-handed hammer.
Sotto's skill set proves that he is very well on his way to becoming a unicorn, a newly-coined basketball terminology that has been used for seven-footers that have guard-like skills.
Famous unicorns in the NBA are two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors and Latvian sensation Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks.
More importantly, his squad got a big win over Xavier, 83-72, to advance to the JAM Finals, where he recorded 23 points and 11 rebounds.
The Blue Eagles eventually triumphed over Ateneo de Cebu, 67-52, where Sotto finished with 24 points, 16 rebounds, and two rejections in the championship game.
