    Please. Shawn Bradley averaged 2.5bpg for his career and had a TON of seasons with over 3bpg with his best year being 4.0bpg. The guy was a blocking machine.

    Sure, dunking over a 7-6 guy is impressive, but Bradley was no slouch. Guys like him and Alonzo Mourning got posterized quite a bit because they were contesting a ton of shots. Hats off to them.

    He is a bit chubby , Bradley and Yao were skinny..this kid has potential . As why Indian sucks at basketball, they hardly care, cricket is their passion sport.

    You can have more then one passion. There is a systemic issue because India sucks in the Olympics too and there is no excuse, way too many people and even though the rural areas are huge there is still a ton of people who are middle class or better.

    Too many vegetarians ;)

    Born in Canada but would be the first player of Indian descent obviously in the NBA.

    I am not sure how this even works I mean is Vivek just thirsty for ticket sales/news? They waived the guy earlier. Maybe its a cruel Aprils Fools joke on Sim

    Perhaps he's improved. 10 pts nearly 4 blocks and nearly 9 rebounds a game in 39 games for the d league. Obviously not dominating, but the blocks are impressive, no?

    When I watch this videos I realize why India has 1+ billion people and such a little presence in the Olympics.

    On a good note, the Indian presence in Silicon Valley, medical, and IT is A1.

    Please take offense and take yourself too seriously. :p

    He's not nearly as agile and skilled as Yao.
