Look at Xu Yong


WHAT'S WRONG with Xu Yong??? :twisted: He was pretty much talented; he was normal; he was just unfortunate that he got cancer that had cut short his basketball career.

As reported on LA World Journal, Guo Runze is kicking @$$ in his high school team, scoring 20+/15+ in competitions.

What ever happened to that little fat kid, he was scouted by UCLA. Haven't heard anything about him.



His still in high school averaging 22ppg and 13rpp, some of his photos can be seen here

After watching some vids of him on youtube, it looks like he doesn't have a future. He could barely jump 3 inches off the ground. Looks like those fat Chinese center in the CBA who is only able to get stats because of strength.

Too short to be a centre in the nba and too slow for a PF/sf.
I doubt he has a shot in the NBA. unless he grows at least another 1.5 inches

Well, I beg to differ.

Need he REALLY had to jump very high???


As a centre/power forward, he needs to be nimble, mobile, occupies good low post positions, play defense, good footwork and have mid-range jumpers/3-pointers.

This kid was averaging 54% 2-pointer% 34% 3-pointer%, and 13 FG%, 13.3 rebounds per game, 2.1 assists per game and 2.8 block shots per game.

His team was 24W 5L.....

He was kicking @$$es in a HIGHLY COMPETITIVE AND QUALITY California High School League
that as some genius on this forum said EVEN CBA champion teams like Guangdong Hongyuan Tigers could not compete to advance deep in the playoff.

Hopefully the jumping 3 inches off the ground was just because he wasnt really putting much effort on the elevation cause the other players were much shorter. But if it's true that his vertical is actually only 3 inches, that's just really bad.

only a fish wrap operation would resort to making up things---like a 12-yr old kid kicking azz in his high school team.

and it takes a 一头雾水 to parrot this fabrication as being the gospel truth.


earth to 一头雾水 :

    this is the USA, specifically the San Gabriel Valley in So Calif, where high schools don't allow kids under 15 in team sports :!: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea:
      much less a 12-yr old kid
    think B4 you parrot, Raymond :!: :roll:

For those interested in knowing the past of Cai Chen, his road to basketball and why he gave up playing for the junior teams of Guangdong Provincial team and Guangdong Hongyuan Tigers, but chose to study in USA, you can go to the following dedicated website by Netease/163.com (it is in Chinese though).

http://sports.163.com/special/000525AD/caichen0801.html


By the way, Cai Chen is destined to be tall. His father is 1.93M (6ft 4) and used to be a basketball player, representing PLA in World Military Games; his mother is 1.80M tall (5ft 11), and used to be a member of China national handball team, which won the bronze medal in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

Guess he got the athletic genes from his parents.

Both his father and mother are from Heilongjiang, and are of Man nationality. And Cai Chen was born in Guangzhou, but because of earlier mistakes by his father when playing for the PLA, he followed that mistake, and taken to be of Han nationality.

Well...more like he's looking for the next potential Chinese NBA prospect, which a good percentage of people on this forum would be interested in at least being aware of.

The prognosis for 12-year-old oversize players rarely are accurate. There was a 6-11 12-year-old in China about 10 years ago and nothing further was heard of him.


I'm not sure whether you're referring to this guy, Zhang Huan 张欢, from Shandong who is 24 years old now.

He is claimed to be the tallest living man, if not in the world but at least in Asia, standing at 2.38M (7ft 9.7), 12 cm (4.7 inches) taller than Yao Ming, and 2 cm taller than the other guy who got into the Guinness World Record, Bao Xishun.

It was said that he joined Shandong military basketball team at the age of 12, and then also the Nanjing military team, Jiangsu Nangang Dragon junior team. Mu Tiezhu used to be his basketball coach, and he once trained together with Yao Ming at Shanghai Sharks for 1 week, when Yao Ming was still in CBA.

He never played to his potential; had a serious injury on his waist and had to quit basketball at the age of 19, 5 years ago.

He now works as an image spokesperson/ambassador for bridal salons of Taiwan in China.




The 6-11 12-year old I heard of had the surname Chen, and I never subsequently heard of a 6-11 or taller CBA player named Chen. Sinobball mentioned Zhang Huan a few years ago when, at 7-7, he played for the Shandong junior team. I asked if he were a prospect or a suspect and Sinobball said "suspect" and so he was. Pituitary giants like Zhang tend to get injured for their height results from a pituitary malfunction. Georghe Muresan was the most successful pituitary giant. Genetic giants like Yao Ming and Manute Bol tend to have longer careers.

Incidentally the 6-9 Guo Runze looks something like a young version of the South Korean center Ha Seung Jin, who is 7-3. But, as noted, and this also happens with very young huge American prospects, failures are far more frequent than successes. In fact the only true superstar center successfully noticed that young that I can remember was Lew Alcindor when he was a 6-8 eighth grader, long before he became 7-2 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
