    He does look somewhat uncoordinated. There was a 7'5" player from NC State years ago that resembled this guy. Can't remember his name right now....might google and see if I can find it. It began with a N, I think.

    I think you are thinking of Tommy Burleson who played with David Thompson and 5'4" Monte Towe. And I think Burleson was 7'4"

    Ok, I had to double check and learned something. NC State listed Towe and Burleson at false heights on purpose. Towe was actually 5'7" and Burleson was actually 7'2". Sneaky wolfpack!

    Get him a pair of those clown looking soccer goalie gloves and let him try to block NFL field goals. It'd be a hoot.

    He's a big guy, but I'm not sure if he could make it in the NBA. It seems like guys that are like 7'4" or above experience some injury issues or just struggle because they can move as quick as everyone else. Yao Ming was 7'6" and was very good for a while before injuries just killed his career. I loved watching him play.

    Anyone remember the player Chuck Nevitt? He was 7'5" and dead set uncoordinated.
