7'5" Mamadou Ndiaye - Tallest HS Player in the World (REAL TALL)

Is this real life? This isn't even fair. This is like when I used to beat up my little brother on Nerf Hoops when he was a toddler and I was a teenager. No contest. After watching the video though, I'm not as impressed as I thought I would be. He definitely has some good skills and instincts but he's also very slow and way too skinny. If he ever wants to play at the next level, he's going to have to get some speed or he will get the ball stolen every time. Height only means so much and he may just become a sideshow if he doesn't improve rapidly. I'm sure Mamadou Ndiaye hasn't been playing competitive basketball for more than a few years so I will certainly give him the benefit of the doubt and time to improve. I'd love to see another tall dude like Manut Bol in the NBA so I'm hoping he gets some good coaching and eventually makes it to the NBA or at least Division 1 in the near future. Either way, it's pretty cool to see someone this big just dominating with ease during any kind of sporting event. As someone said in the YouTube comments "This is like watching Space Jam when the aliens win." Exactly. HA HA.
