Pacers' dancing kid Will Marquardt, of Fishers, up for NBA OMG Social Media Award

8-year-old's video went viral

INDIANAPOLIS - A young Pacers fan with some killer dances moves has caught the attention of the NBA.

Video of Will Marquardt, 8, of Fishers, dancing to Run-D.M.C.'s "It's Tricky" during a timeout at a January home game quickly went viral, with the young fan showing off some serious moves.

Now Marquardt's performance has been nominated for an NBA Social Media Award in the OMG category.

He's up against some pretty stiff competition, including the Miami Heat's take on the "Harlem Shake," a Minnesota Timberwolves player shaving his head for breast cancer awareness and a Detroit Pistons' player making a long shot over a double-decker bus.
