You gotta read this. Some african guy, 7-11 tall is draft eligible. His language was supposed to be extinct! It's not April Fool's Day, I checked twice. 8-o

That is hilarious. His native language is Hottentot? lol

"Because he's exactly 7-foot-11, I'm already talking to the people at 7-Eleven and they might want him to endorse their new cheesy hot dog."


As for the arc on his shot, Sefu echoes a comment made by one high-profile analyst about potential top-five pick Andre Iguodala: "He's not a great shooter, but he shoots a good ball."


This is the best one:

He's never shot a free throw, according to Sefu. But the scout insists, "He can't be much worse than Shaq."


"He's certainly not polished, but the kid's clearly a freak -- and I mean that in a positive way," Sefu says.


Sefu is not sure if Kudu will be willing to block shots, despite his height.

"He's a very sensitive guy, and he might not want to hurt the feelings of those playing with him," he says.


"But I think it's safe to say that we all speak the language of basketball," Sefu says. "Even though Chimezie has been playing all his life with a ball made out of fused sheep's testicles."

He has a standing reach of 10 feet

I can guarantee that the kid can dunk.

A guy from my grade 8 class, who is 7-5 and was eligible for the NBA draft tonight (although unfortunately wasn't picked) can dunk without jumping.
