High School Basketball Star Tacko Fall is 7-Foot-5 and Can Dunk Without Jumping
It must be a rough life if you’re about 7-foot-5 and weight close to 250 pounds. It’s probably impossible to find clothes that fit, shoes that fit and even a room or house to live in that you don’t have to be crouching over all the time. For Tacko “Taco” Fall, that is the life he leads, but pretty soon, he won’t have to worry about much because, with his size, he will be in the NBA in no time.
At 7-foot-5, Fall is the tallest high school basketball player in the nation and he’s taller than any NBA player as well — Hasheem Thabeet is a close second at 7-foot-3.
What Fall does on the basketball court with his height is expected, but it never gets old to watch. The mammoth high school star towers over other high school players and makes it look silly how easy it is for him to score and dunk.
Heck, when you can dunk without jumping, it’s got to be a pretty easy game, right? Check out Fall’s mixtape that is taking over the internet recently:
Yeah, it looks kind of silly when he jumps to dunk because he doesn’t have to. Driving to the lane on this kid has to be somewhat of a form of torture.
I can’t imagine trying to post Fall up, and I’m sure not too many high school kids have success at doing so.
Fall has drawn some interest from school close to his home in Houston, Texas, yet this video might help him gain more national recognition — and let’s hope so.
I’d love to see this kid play college ball somewhere big.
