Hey, cut the big guy some slack! Anyhoo, how bad did he do with them?

I don't remember exactly. Less than two a game I think with no rebounding or shotblocking to make up for it.

Um. . .I'm sorry I said he had a chance. He's just for looks, how sad, I'd love to see a 7'9" guy out there. . .oh well. . .

From what I've seen 7'9" is just to big. You just can't be that tall and still be athletic or even healthy for that matter.

Yeah, it does suck for him to be that big. He just doesn't look healthy enough to do much. If he could somehow get stronger he'd do well in the WWF.

they did a report on him on cnn one time.. or some news channel.. like an hour special.. he has had a hard life.. he had a tumor removed that made it so he could hit puberty..... he never grew facial hair as a kid.. and the rumor blocked his ability to grow features that men have.. and he is 7'9.. truely an amazing story..

im glad he is getting a chance.. and the kid has an insane jump shot.. im serious

You guys are quick to pass judgement. He'll get better playing against folks here in the States. If he improves enough to go into the NBA he'll eclipse Minute Bol's record as talles NBA player.

Plus, have you seen him grip the ball? It looks like one of those little rubber balls you get when your a toddler in his hands.

I just saw a video of him on his old team. It looks like his jumper is really good actually. Which makes sense because he doesn't have to get it up to much just out. So he can shoot a dead flat line shot a back rim it or bank it in.

Plus he said one of his favorit players is Tim Duncan so.... he's cool.
