Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

There's those 7'4 kids that play in Canada, forgot their names. Think they're brothers.

I think one of them went to collage this year.

There's another 7'5 African kid in the US, forgot his name too.

Most if not all of them likely aren't good NBA prospects tho, only guys that might being so are prolly the last two you posted.

But then again who knows. if they work really hard to improve their skill-set they have an obvious advantage.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Mamadou N'Diaye. he looks like he has gigantism so he doesn't move very well on the court but then again he's simply so physically dominating.

ESPN actually has him pretty highly rated now...a few months ago they weren't sure what to think of him: http://espn.go.com/college-sports/ba...mamadou-ndiaye

Mamadou N'Diaye

country: USA (born in Senegal)
height: 7'5 (2.26 cm)
age: 18?





believed to be tallest player in the US. funny enough there's a player with exactly the same name (also from Senegal) who played in NBA.

These guys (ITT not the picture) aren't ballers. It's so easy for them.

Without it gravity is just gravy.
