    Well...he's still taller than every NBA player so he'll always have height.

    He doesn't look clumsy as others have pointed out, these are highlights though and he's young and if he has the desire he could be beastly.

    Problem is these body types do not survive the rigors of the NBA for very long.

    He has almost a foot on every person that guards him. Put him up against a 6'10" player with athleticism, and there's no way he has any impact on the game.

    He's extremely slow and that is not gonna fit in the NBA these days. His rebounds are simply because of his height, shows no fundamentals on offense. He's gonna get a division II scholarship and probably will never amount to much.

    Actually it was the Amazon. A place called the "floating forest." Some guy named Paul Rosalie said he was gonna feed himself to it but instead he just jerked off all over us.

    We'll have to see how he does in college. That's usually a good indicator. Guys like Thabeet (really tall, no heart or skill) put up decent/above average numbers. But with height like that, he should be dominating college. If he doesn't he'll probably bust in the NBA.

    lies. Pretty much any D2 college would take in a 7'5 center. He's only a JR He has plenty of time to develop.

    Not impressed. He's being wasted in high school and probably would be wasted in college, too. Don't see this kid lasting long in the NBA. Especially the way today's NBA games are played, compared to the 90s. Some people need to temper their infatuation of these super tall dudes.

    Tacko is a gentle giant and I hope he retires as a Rocket.

    Tacko's dad Yao Ming would have steered him to the Rockets but Tilman traded our pick for Luxury Tax Savings!

    Looks good to me too

    More potential than Isaiah Hartenstein.

    Plus Nene opted out.

    Too bad Celtics added him already to their roster.
