    [CENTER]Amazing, isn't it? - Notice that he's only 23!!
  • Well now, this fellow puts my puny little almost 6'9" husband to shame!! :eek:
    (and, no, Hubby never played B-Ball. When asked, he'll tell ya quite clearly, "Because I always sucked at it!" :p :laugh:
  • I stand 6'3"......he is very tall. I hope for his sake that he makes good money, most men of that stature do not last long due to health issues.
  • Dude his hand like engulfs the ball!!!!
    Imagen trying to block against him??

    Impossible sombulus, no one could block this guy. He was on a TV show recently, and he can just walk up to a goal and place it in the net. He doesn't even have to shoot the ball if he doesn't want to!

    On the other hand, it is probably both a blessing and a curse to be so tall. I wouldn't know, I am an average height, but I can only imagine the things he goes through in his daily life. I'm sure he is not the happiest person in the world.
