Kenny George: Could We See A Nearly 8-foot Tall NBA Player?
George stands 7 feet 9 inches with his shoes on. He also weighs a more than solid 360 pounds and wears size 26 shoes.
Your first thought is likely, uh oh, we've got another Sun Ming Ming on our hands.
But that's not the case.
George is actually having a rather impressive senior season. He's averaging 12.8 points per game, 9.2 rebounds, and a not-so-surprising 5.4 blocked shots per game. He's also shooting an unreal 70% from the field.
The problem is that George isn't the fleetest of foot, and is only averaging 22 minutes a game - which is actually double what he averaged as a junior.
But still, he's a nightmare to defend, as the video below makes all too clear.
As you can see, George barely even needs to jump in order to dunk.
If you go on any mock 2008 NBA Draft page, you won't even see George listed. Although that's not overly surprising, given how athletic today's NBA is, I'd still have to think someone will give this guy a look.
After all, Serge Zwicker once made an NBA roster.
