Yeah, I know of someone similar. The fellow is probably in his mid-40's and played pro ball for a little bit in South America somewhere. He's probably an inch or two shorter than Larry. Still, fantastic shooter and with his size, one must never give him any breathing room ever because he'll fire and hit, even with his age and relative immobility. And I think that's the thing with Larry. Even if he literally could do nothing more than jog, he's still a listed 6'9'' with one of the deadliest strokes in world history. I imagine even current Larry being pretty amazing.
