World's tallest Basketballer..

Recommended Posts

Soltan Kosen.. The world's tallest Basketballer.. 8'0 and still going!

21 year old Sultan Kosen stands 242 cm (8-0 feet), weights 155 kgs and wears 60-size shoes. He has been discovered by a scout of Galatasaray named Cavit Altunay in Kiziltepe Köyü, a little village of the Mardin Province, Eastern Turkey, very near to Iraq boundary.

Galatasaray has immediately signed the young player, and the club is confident to convert him in a basketball player in two or three years, even if he is only a project at the pure beginning. At present, in fact, Kosen needs a surgical treatment at his knees and needs to improve his athletic skills. But Galatasaray doctors say that he hasn't yet ended his growth, and the definitive height could be around 250 cms (8 feet, 2 inches)

Wow.

I think when guys get that tall they just look like they can't run very easily. The proportions get out of wack and the guys look like they are going to break a hip trying to run up and down the court...

I guess at 8 foot tall you can just plant the guy under your hoop and have everybody else do the running about.

Pass it to Sultan!!!

Pass it to Sultan!!!

Pass it to Sultan!!!
