I wonder how many tall kids don't go out for basketball just because they're tall? Do I "go for the gold" or just be me...tall?

That's the same gym the WNBA played in during Covid.

Decent footwork for his size/age. He’s probably peaked though.

I dunno... usually these guys have horrible footwork and are super skinny. He'll end up playing D1 so even with a small athleticism increase as he grows into his body he could end up really good. Being even slightly athletic over 7' is so rare.

First time in a while that I've seen one of these skyscraper high school kids that didn't look like stick figures. Kid has good weight right now to play college ball.

really a waste of his time to be playing basketball in high school in the US at that size, unless he has no aspirations to try to get better and be a professional player in the future. He should be in Europe on a professional team right now.

He's a sophmore. Let him be around kids of the same age and not Euro men.

Impressively symmetrical for 7’6. Guy can freakin touch the rim without jumping. He’s a foot taller than the other Center.

Ya he's built a lot better than that last kid from Europe that was briefly hyped. That poor kid had to step away from the game for a couple years to get his back realigned or something like that.
