    Im a huge rockets fan and I live in LA ( I know its hard to believe).
    I was at the W hotel to pick someone up and at the check in desk I see a tall guy which from the back looked like he could be Clint Cappella, I showed a picture to the person I was with and she agreed. I noticed his accent, so when he was done I asked for a picture and told him I was huge fan. He was really nice and said he is excited for this coming year.

    Most of his height advantage appears to be his head.

    Rumor has it that he bricked two free throws just waiting for his room.

    I don't think I would have recognized him either without asking (only would ask bc he's tall).

    and you have Yao status? :confused: how do you people not recognize these men when they're out in public. I'd recognize absolutely any NBA player walking the streets. I guess I'm a little obsessed?
