ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Ricky Rubio is a relatively tall dude. I was with him just last week. I’m a bit over 6-foot-1, and Ricky is a few inches inch taller that I am.
Yao Ming is a really tall dude. As a player he was listed at 7-foot-6, but with shoes on, he was probably a bit taller than even that. We know Yao is tall because years ago we put him on the cover of SLAM and ended up having to chop off the top of his head to make him fit on the cover.
This week, Ricky Rubio is in China, and he apparently had a chance to snap a photo with Yao Ming. And… yeah, Yao is still huge.
