Red face Asian "specific body"

The NBA has gotten better about it but is still very hung up on a guy having a "specific body". Hence all the workout wonders that can't even hit gimme 15 footers which plauged the league from the late 90's on....but oh they can dunk.

Heck in this day and age they'd probably pass on Barkley because he's "too short" to play the PF position.


Being Asian certainly didn't fit into that "specific body"..

I recall team after team wasting high draft picks on *athletic* 2-guards hoping for the next Michael Jordan.

6'6, can jump out of the gym, highlight dunks......and few other basketball skills.
