The Bhullar Bros.

Wow. I mean, I do not know anything about their abilities, but just a story I came across when I was looking up Canadian High School Prospects. It started when I was looking up Stefan Nastic, a 7 footer from Thornhill HS (I am actually originally from Thornhill, and lived in Toronto for the first 18 years of my life, and am here currently until further notice) who supposedly had Coach K come to his school and check him out. Than, as my search lead me to a list of High School Basketball players from Canada, I came up upon Sim and Tanveer Bhullar, who are 7-4 and 7-2 respectively. Sim is a sophomore and Tanveer is a freshman. You say, "in the land of the Amazons?" and my answer is no, in High School. I mean, I do not know what there prospects seem to be, I am sure having those bodies at that age must be a bear, but wow, seems like they are doing the right things to become tangible basketball players. Let the show begin, I attached an article SLAM somehow wrote without me knowing about less than a month ago.

7-2 and 7-4??????????WoW, my

7-2 and 7-4??????????WoW, my team could use one of them, Im not sure there would be any school in the Nation that could even come close to matching their size in the frontcourt. But, yeah I fear for their bodies long-term, Come on what are the kids 14-or15 years old and their 7-2 and 7-4 , you'd have to assume their not done growing yet either. They could be 7-6 a piece, if they can hold up(that being a huge if, even without the basketball part).

Definitely

They could easily grow another few inches, but you have to wonder their genetic disposition. I mean, usually kids that huge have pituitary gland issues, but for two brothers too be that tall and both have the same issue? Nonetheless, 7 footers always seem to have knee problems down the line, but at least they seem to be into basketball and I am sure that playing against them in high school would be insanely imposing. Seeing that as a freshman in HS I was probably two feet shorter than the little one, I am sure it would have messed with my head. Just intriguing to see a case like this. My apologies to the person who apparently disliked my post enough too take away a point. I mean, I was not doing it for points, just wanted to bring up this case too people here, but, still found it funny :)

it will probably be years

it will probably be years and years before they are any good. usually when youre that tall that young it takes you a long time before you gain some skill and get used to you're bodies

Quincey

That is true. It your body, not you're (you are) body. Quincey, for a guy who claims to know a lot about basketball, it would be nice to use good grammar, maybe capitalize when starting a new sentence. Like, I know you post here a lot, and I think you actually do have some valid points, heck, possibly even credentials of being a player, but if you had better grammar I am so sure you would get more of a response if you have claims you are willing to make. Otherwise, you kind of seem like you are just talking trash. I do not mean to sound like a dick, but I just am trying to be honest with how I tend to interpret quite a few of your posts.
