The Harlem Globe-Trotters are sporting a 7'8 beast that can dunk without even jumping. I know this guy played in college with limited minutes, and likely isn't exactly "NBA" material, but still... 7'8? I gotta think some team would bring this guy in and see what he can do.

At least he's got a job playing pro-ball. Although, I don't think he's from "Harlem". That English accent he has certainly suggests otherwise. He is also much lighter skinned that his teammates... are the Globe-Trotters turning into the T-Wolves? I guess the Globe-Trotters GM will do whatever it takes to beat the Washington Generals, including breaking race barriers.

Serioulsy... thoughts on this guy? I'd be curious to see somebody give him a shot.

Height doesn't = automatic tryout this is the nba not highschool basketball.

That dude clearly has that elephentitis or whatever it is, did you watch him run? He can barely run and barely move. No way anyone brings this guy in for any amount of money.

That's just not fair! I love how he starts out with a hook, misses it and then says "Ah, ******* it" and dunks it.

None of the original Harlem Globetrotters were actually from Harlem, but Abe Saperstein gave them that name essentially advertising that they were black. The first decades of Trotters teams actually were really good players who had to develop "The Show" to keep from running up the score and angering the white teams they played as they traveled across the country.

Nowadays, it only makes sense that they branch out considering the fact that it has become purely a performance. Shaun Bradley is another example of when height alone does not cut it.

There's been a few threads on this guy going back several years to when he was trying to get a gig in the UK.
Thinking some team should give him a shot just because he's that tall is the reason most NBA front offices suck.
