Found July 21, 2012 on NBA 24/7 365:

According to an unverified Sporcle quiz (easily the most reliable source I’ve ever cited), Christian Eyenga was one of 30 active NBA players between 2009 and 2011 who could touch 12 feet.  While I have my doubts in regards to some of those players listed by the quiz (Danny Granger, for example), the following video pretty much serves as a confirmation of how high Eyenga can sky.

Various sources list both Marcus Hubbard and Hilton Armstrong, the poor bastards, in the 6’10” range.  Eyenga cleared each one of ‘em by approximately a mile, which would put his max touch somewhere in the vicinity of 5,287 feet.  Seems about right, wouldn’t you say?

Nope. “People...

How will Kobe and another Superman co-exist this time around?

As we all know the Thunder have set a pretty high bar in the Western Conference as the team to beat. I know it was only one Final’s run but, do you really see anybody comparable in the West?
