          Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

          So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

            He's probably so tall he lacks the coordination and conditioning to play ball....He can hold the backboard....

                Because Slava Medvedenko would make him bow down to the greatness of Slava.

                  Size does not always mean good basketball player but, good basketball player usually means size not in every case but most so, hence the legend of tall people are always good basketball players, it's kinda like the myth if your huge then you can fight i've seen a few big people get handled no resistance...

                    Usually people this tall die very early in their life because the heart has to overwork itself circulating the blood, I'd hate to be that tall.

                      Yeah, and that's why he won't play basketball. Running up and down the court would kill him.

                        Not to mention the joints. I'm sure having 8' 5" of bones when running around could end up tearing something.

                        I knew a kid that had a disease which made him keep growing. .he was like 6'11.. Could never play basketball, most uncoordinated kid I ever met. He had trouble walking, I'd of hated to see him on the court.

                        Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                          I think the world's tallest man deserves the world's tallest ox.

                            Stadnik's growth spurt started at age 14 after a brain operation apparently stimulated his pituitary gland, which produces the human growth hormone.

                              Almost all people with freakish height are due to sicknesses in the Pituiritary gland.
