Shaq not the biggest afterall

Univ of North Carolina has the biggest asset , center Kenny George, who measures in at 7 feet 7 inches tall.

"Some things come easily on the basketball court for George, the tallest player in the country, at 7 feet 7 inches and 360 pounds. Entering the Bulldogs’ game Wednesday night against top-ranked North Carolina, George leads the nation in blocked shots per game (5.4), and he has become a fan favorite here in his junior year. Near the end of a recent overtime victory against Buffalo, George received a standing ovation for his 21-point, 10-rebound, 6-block performance."

Things aren't completely rosey for Kenny.  He has an overactive pituatary gland which caused him to grow excessively.  He still must have it checked regularly to ensure he will not continue to grow out of control. 

He is too big to fit into the driver side of a car and drive himself.  Clothes and shoes must be custom made for him.  His joints also take a beating from performing for his over 7 foot 360 lb body.

I know most people thought NBA! NBA! When they first read this.  But it is unlikely that Kenny's legs could withstand the constant pounding of a NBA game for a serious career of any length.  College ball may be the last stop for Kenny as he already has had serious surgey on his knee.

Shaq may be safe in his position after all.
