Meet Johnny Stephene, a ball-handling superhero with a unique and awesome job of training professional basketball players. His growing clientele includes NBA stars Kevin Durant, DeMar DeRozan, and Nate Robinson.

Here's the even cooler part: He didn't actually apply to any of them. People merely saw his Instagram pageand the rest is history. Here's what KryptoNate has to say about him:

"He does a great job at self-promotion, but he's passionate at what he does. He really wants to help people," says Robinson, who worked with Stephene over the summer. "I've told my teammates about him. They can't believe that he is that good. He should definitely be a part of some NBA team as a coach, trainer, because his gift is so powerful."

Stephene originally played college ball for Central Oklahoma and even declared for the 2012 NBA Draft, in which he went undrafted. He then took his ball-handling wizardry to Mexico, but his career was cut short by a leg injury.
