    No way the kid makes it that far in the NBA. He's doing it all on height alone and was ever taught the fundamentals.

    If this was my kid, I'd shell out all my money for the best coaches/trainers as an investment in the future.

    Whenever I see these vids of these really tall guys, it just reminds me how much of a freak Yao was.

    All these big guys look so awkward and clumsy, unskilled.

    He's only a junior.. in highschool.. and I think he's in a prep school. I'd say he'll develop if he has a desire to play ball.

    he doesn't look clumsy. Not being clumsy is probably all he needs in order to get drafted.

    he should really get some proper sports glasses. That alone would probably improve his game a decent amount.

    False, this is just re-digitized video of Wilt in the 1960's.

    This +100000. Being that tall and coordinated AND having such touch is just.. insane. I think in 20-30 years it may be more common but just goes to show how ahead of his time Yao was.

    Side note YOFs>LOFs.

    it may be more common because there will be billions of more people born.

    but it is rare because it takes longer for your brain to reach the farthest parts of your body and then the signal to get sent back to your brain. reaction is not "instant" but dependent on the length the signal travels.

    How about his coke bottle glasses? My goodness. Knock them off and he's running into the wall.
