I was looking at some Euro sites and came across this guy. Exactly how tall is he? I've seen him listed anywhere from 7'9 to 8'2. Can he play at all? He has to be the biggest pro player ever.

hes 7'11" but doctors say he could grow to 8'2". hes 22 years old and his knees need surgery. he was signed by galatasaray (a turkish team). a scout found him in a village on the border of turkey / iraq. he has not played any basketball yet but they hope to convert him. could be a few years before he gets on the court.

I seriously doubt he is ever going to play a pro basketball game. People his height have trouble just walking regularly, just imagine him on a basketball court. He would look like bambi on ice, it would be terrible...

Actually he can't play, but it's not about his skills, it's about his body. This season he's going to have a lot surgery and next season he'll begin to train. (He didn't know what basketball was...)
