He's NBA bound. Congrats. I think speed will be an issue for him.

At seven foot five and 360 pounds, Bhullar’s big frame draws attention everywhere he goes. Even for him, though, the last few days have been unlike anything he has ever seen.

As the first NBA player of Indian descent, Bhullar has attracted a worldwide audience since signing a 10-day contract with the Sacramento Kings. He’s fully aware of the cultural significance and wants to make the most of the opportunity — for himself, his family and every kid in India with a basketball and a dream.

"It’s a big moment in the history of the NBA and the history of my country in India," Bhullar said following Sacramento’s morning shootaround Friday. "I know my family’s going to be proud of me and everybody’s going to be proud of me and cheer me on the court."

Wow, he has a very nice shooting touch, not the flat shot like so many big guys. He looks out of shape in the videos I see, but hopefully he can fix that.

I can think of 4 guys close to that size: Bol, Bradley, Yao, and Muresan. All of them had a lot of problems with injuries, I think. Muresan had 3 productive years and that was it.

I saw Bol play in Chicago, and he looked really quick for his size, but he was rail-thin and got pushed around. According to his wiki page he ran a basketball clinic in Cairo, Egypt that produced Luol Deng.

Yao probably was the best of them - but his feet just could not take the pounding. Bhullar weighs more than Yao.
