Woody Harrelson was captured on video teaching his daughter to play basketball, and it’s pretty neat.

TMZ reported:

Woody was on set filming his new movie, “The Highwaymen,” when he took some time out to teach his youngest daughter, Makani, the same tactics he used to dominate Wesley Snipes (face it, he did).

Looks like Woody’s teaching her how to finish high in the lane without killing her dribble, and demonstrating it from multiple angles on the court … and he seems like he’s still got it.

I don’t know why I love this video so much. It’s obviously in part because he starred in “White Men Can’t Jump,” but it’s also just in part because Harrelson seems like such a cool dude.

There’s nothing more fun than teaching a young kid how to play basketball. It’s a sport that pretty much everybody loves, and teaching people the game is always a fun experience.

Woody Harrelson also just seems like one of the most chill guys you could ever meet. I’d like to believe that he would make an outstanding basketball coach. I obviously have no idea if that’s true, but in my perfect world I’d envision him as an excellent coach.
