    Link: 13-Year-Old Boy Already 7-Feet-Tall - This kid is taller than most basketball players at 13--he`s even tall than Shaq. He has NBA written all over him.

    WOW. Thats impressive.

    However, tallness doesn`t mean he is a shoo in for the NBA. I dated a guy last winter who was 6`9" and had never played basketball. He is studying to become a heart surgeon.

    6`9" aint nothing in the NBA.

    Now... 7 feet already? If he gets to Ming`s height he will make it.

    What Sox? Are you suggesting men are attracted only by your big boobies? I thought they`d be attracted to you by your apparent sparkling wit and phenomenal intellect. I`m not sure whether its the Britney Spears avatar or your profile statement "I am what you can not see threw the glass" that gives me that impression.

    SoxXxhXcxSeX manages too look even more moronic than usual, which is actually a pretty impressive feat, given how idiotic she already looks. SoxXxhXcxSeX, we get it: you`re trying to look like a hot nymphomaniac chick with huge boobs, but you`re actually accomplishing to seem like the world`s most hardcore retard. All your comments are lame sex jokes and self flattering douchebaggery written by what seems to me is a drunken chimpanzee who doesn`t get enough attention and is desperately yelling for some. I usually don`t rant this much about this kind of stuff, but you just annoy the f*ck out of me. If you managed to read till here, I congratulate you for having an attention span greater than that of a hyperactive hamster with ADD.

    Sorry for him, but interesting point - notice how youth today are taller than parents in general? Statistically, 50 years ago you had a 5% change of being taller than six foot when you reached your adult height, now its close to 50%. I blame long-term radiation from the nukes used in WW2 but it could also be alien interbreeding, or genetic adaptation caused by moms putting the cookie jar on a higher shelf. Or maybe its evolution trying to make us taller to avoid all the settling pollution in the sea. Who knows, but the height stats bit is true.

    My cousin was like that,still is very tall,but not growing luckily anymore. The problem with being to tall at a young age is that the vital organs and heart strain to work properly,which is bad and not to forget back problems (bone problems really ) later in life.

    That news reader really annoyed me. It sounds at times like she`s asking a question when she`s supposed to be stating a fact. Irritating.

    But that poor kid. I wonder if he gets picked on or if the other kids are scared he`ll step on them or something...

    General chromosome mutation usually means that kid will be dead in 20 years. His heart won`t be able to keep pushing blood to his brain coz its so far.

    "That news reader really annoyed me."

    Omg me too.

    "General chromosome mutation usually means that kid will be dead in 20 years. His heart won`t be able to keep pushing blood to his brain coz its so far."

    Also, yeah I heard about that. People who have growth deficiencies usually don`t live that long at all. :(

    Gigantism, or Acromegaly doesn`t normally lead to an athletic career. It leads to a future of massive medical problems with bone overgrowth, leading to fragile bone structure, heart defects, and cancer. So, yeah, NBA? Not so much.

    I have friends with these problems. Not fun for anyone.

    I think the point of the article is that he doesn`t have gigantism or acromegaly. Hencebeing able to stop him growing by making him hit puberty. Something that wouldn`t happen with Gigantism, where you continue to grow all your life. (Not sure about acromegaly).

    oh boy, all of the cases I`ve seen of uncontrollable growth have led to early deaths. I hope they can delay his growth soon.

    It`s good that they are stopping his growth. If he got any taller, his health could be at risk. Really hard on the heart to push blood through a body that stretched out. That`s why most of those "Tallest Man in the World" guys usually don`t live past 45.

    I don`t think he`s in the best health to be playing professional basketball. The rare instances involved with disease-caused heights such as these usually involve the person dying at a young age. Imagine the joint problems he`ll have by the time he`s in college. I seriously doubt he`ll be able to swiftly run with any balls down any courts with those legs. He already seems to be walking funny.

    That`s sad... So young, and you can tell walking is already a difficult task. He`s going to have so many health complications.
