Just like Golden State's "Splash Brothers," an eight-year-old Fresno boy was also ready to shine on the NBA's biggest stage.

Warrior sharp-shooter and league MVP Stephen Curry wasn't the only guy working on his moves for the NBA Finals. Eight-year-old Donald Love III will be there as well.

Love's love of dance earned him a spot on the Golden State Warriors Junior Jam squad. Donald's danced at 28 games this season in front of thousands of people.

The Oraze Elementary third-grader said, "It makes me nervous but I just get through with it. I just keep the focus. The best part is it makes me feel good."

Love's parents will be there for game two in Oakland when the Donald performs with the 28 member hip hop crew. Over 150 kids auditioned before the season.

Donald's mom Kamarie said, "He will be dancing for the finals which I'm ecstatic. It's nervous as a mom even it's the NBA but all you think about is your son or your child and it's definitely intense."

Tony Allen of Memphis caught a round of boos for walking right through the middle of the group's performance during the playoffs.

Donald said, "Tony Allen interrupted our performance and then looked at me and came and shook my hand."

ESPN even tweeted about Donald dancing outside Oracle Arena.

Kamarie Donald said, "They like to celebrate after the games, after a big win and Donald got a chance to do a little freestyle on the outside and SportsCenter retweeted it and it was on ESPN for a moment."

Donald also met a guy named Lebron James this season. "He was injured that day so he walked by. He's was like "hi" and he gave all of us a high five."

Steph Curry's his favorite though. Donald's parents have been driving him to Bay Area games and practices all season long but they say it is all worth it. He has been movin' and groovin' since the age of three.
