Yes, but can he play ball?

By Daniel Strickland on January 11, 2006.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

A celebrity by virtue of his height, Pakistan’s tallest man, 7-foot-8 Naseer Soomro, draws a crowd in Shikarpur, where he hopes to buy a cow. Muslims around the world celebrate Eid-al-Adha by slaughtering sheep, goats, cows and camels to commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son on God’s command. The meat is given to the poor.

    If he grew up in an environment that promoted the sport, then he would definitely played basketball or have been a basketball player. How good of a player nobody can be certain of, but I can imagine he could just stand at the rim and dunk without jumping at all lol…
