Kiefer Ravena is 5'9" and still growing. Male growth, I think, ends at the age of 21, while female growth ends at 16.

In that case, Gian Chiu may reach the 6'11" or 7'0" feet mark.

Don't forget that we also have Ray Parks Jr. (14-15 years of age and already 6'4"). This kid should be considered for the Asian U16 Championship next year.

Yes bawji is already practicing with Tulsa Golden Hurricanes ,they have a trip to Canada very soon.
gyokchyan was very very close and he visited these 2 universities i've mentioned,but unfortuntely he lacked the good notes in his high school which will oblige him to repeat his last year with lawrenceville high school.

The next asian big thing....Hamed Ehadadi will be it. Standing 7-foot-2 just turned 23 compiled 19 points, 16 rebounds and 2 block shots in an friendly match between the Mavericks and Iranian national team prior to the olympic games.

He is the 7-footer scouts never knew until now.

From all the guys mentioned above, I think Ray Parks has the biggest chance to make it in the NBA...He's just 16 yrs. old and he is being recruited by DUKE, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Virginia etc....Those schools can give you National exposure especially if he will go to Duke (ESPN BABY!)...

Anton Ponomarev- Did he already apply for NBA Draft? He's good....

Nikha Bharami of Iran for sure a big ting...

Hadade and Bharami are eyed by the NBA teams, since the US has allowed iranians to play ball in the US.....
