If you thought LeBron or KG were freaks of nature, check THIS kid out.

7'9" (!!!!!!!). 350 POUNDS. And he's only 21.

http://www.news-record.com/sports/local/bkbtraining_041305.htm



Ball in hand, Sun, 21, muscles his 350-pound frame into training partner Dshamal Schoetz, a 7-footer who played at Greensboro College who is nearly nine inches shorter. Sun pivots and places the ball firmly into the hoop. Swish.

Sun, who is from Harbin, China, is training in Greensboro for a shot at the NBA. His agent, Charles Bonsignore, paired the prospect up with former client and former professional basketball player Keith Gatlin. Gatlin, a managing partner with 334 Sports, a local firm that trains athletes, has worked with Sun for about five weeks.

"With his size, that intrigues everybody," Gatlin said. "He can really shoot the ball to be that size. The challenge for him now is to get mobile, to get up and down the court."
------------------

Yikes. I sure hope he gets drafted.

Yeah, I would say mobility would be the main concern.

But if he can get THAT down, he WILL be the next big thing.

Holy shit. But then again, height doesn't necessarily make you a great player-- wasn't Chuck Nevitt 7'5"?

A 7'9" player, sure, your ears perk up. But we'll see if his hard work translates into improved ability.

Yeah, while Yao might be good, and we all know about Shaq, how about the guy who got bitch-dunked on by T-Mac that plays for Dallas. Sin't he taller than Yao? And what about Manute Bol, he was 7'6". He was a great shot blocker and even had a few nice 3-pointers but I don't think he as really a superstar by any stretch. I don't see this kid being a factor for many years if ever.

You're thinking of Shawn Bradley. I think he's 7'6. He's only in the league because he's really really tall.

Actually, Manute Bol was 7'7", as was Gheorghe Muresan. Those two hold the record for tallest player in the NBA, and yeah, they both pretty well sucked, although Muresan at least made a solid backup and even won the Most Improved Player award once.
