    Apparently Wemby just got measured again and is currently 7-4 barefoot...

    This dude is rare. Absolutely a special talent. But he’s on that side of height that is a guaranteed injury.

    Also, if we were lucky enough to draft him. I’m going super big if I’m the coach. KP, Green, Smith at the 3, Alp at the 4 and Wemby at the 5.


    With Eason, JC and TyTy being the main backups

    And he's only 18, so there's a chance he grows taller, still.

    Wowee.

    That is insanity!

    Very rare for guys over 7'3 to be productive in the NBA. A lot of the time due to fluidity or injury. Vic has the natural movement, is he an injury waiting to happen?

    The tanks are all lining up

    I have no idea how he'll turn out in the NBA, but I'm sure as hell interested to find out. :)

    If we somehow land him or Scoot it'll be one of the most excited I've been as a Rocket fan in 20+ years

    Much like Chet, Wemby compliments Alp very well.
    Green at the 2, Jabari at the 3, Alp at the 4, Wemby at the 5. Tari backing up 3-5
    KPJ at the 1?

    There is absolutely zero history to suggest this is going anywhere other than lots of injuries, limited minutes before the age of 30, and a retirement shortly thereafter. If we have the chance to draft him or Scoot, please draft Scoot.

    He is too tall now, every player over 7'4" gets hurt...

    Well you all know damn good and well no matter where the Lakers pick falls in the draft this next year the League will find a way to make sure Wemby ends up there on draft night.
