Watch: 11-Year-Old Basketball Fan's 'Dance Cam' Moves Go Viral

There's nothing like a dance-off to liven up … well, anything, really. Especially when it's between an arena usher known for his moves and a young boy.

Antwain Alexander, an 11-year-old Pistons fan, had one goal when he attended last week's Detroit game against the New York Knicks.

"He had been trying to get that dance cam to be on him throughout the whole entire game," his father, Pastor Alexander, told ABC News.

The cameraman finally gave Antwain his moment and then, unaware that he was making history, cut from Antwain to Shannon Sailes, 46, an arena usher famous for dancing in the aisles during games.



"He was, like, doing his moves and everything, and then they went back to me and I stood up and I said, 'Come on!'" Antwain told ABC News.

"It was time for me to step up," Sailes told ABC News. And step up, he did. The pair's dance-off has gone viral, and while no one has officially declared a winner, both competitors remained magnanimous towards their rival.

"Overall," Sailes told ABC News, "he's a young man, talented, got so much going for himself. He's the winner."

Gentlemen, please. We've all won here today.
