    No 14 year old boy baller ever is showing up 17 year old near-men players of top pinoy high schools. I don't even know of a 14 year old boy that can start for a top uaap team. As anyone who watched the game knows, the boy just got dead tired. With better conditioning, a 10 block 30 rebound game for 30 minutes will certainly be easy for him. No hype at all. It is just natural for a 14 year old body to last at most 20 minutes in a uaap game.

    What again did kobe paras accomplish at 14?

    lol don't start a debate...

    Kobe was already dunking a basketball at age 13 whereas Sotto at 13 barely with his height...


    either way, would be very interesting to follow this kid's progress...

    hopefully he grows to 7'3"-7'4". so much expectations, so much hype. i feel if he gets to equate marlou aquino's career (the original Skyscraper), then that in itself is already a good thing. but as a 14 year old prospect that is being carefully groomed and developed by the SBP and MVP group, sky is the limit for the KAISCRAPER.

    credit to mrjumbo03 for coming up with the monicker. knowing that a lot of sportscasters and reporters regularly visit interbasket, this nick just might stick.

    Are there currently any plans to send him to the US?

    There are many 6'6 athletic college basketball players in the US NCAA but a 7'3 plus with good fundamental in basketball is a rarity..

    It's really the potential of what the finish product could look like, he's projected to be at least 7 feet and his mobility at this young an age is good. Watching him he actually has a good feel for the game , has good timing. (obviously he's still weak, but that will come to a decent level)

    As a poster above mentioned the combination of his projection as an adult (7 feet with mobility and coordination) is really a rarity for Pinoy hoops. (A worst case scenario of a 7 feet version of Marlou Aquino is pretty good!)

    Maybe good comparison would be to look up the stats of ej feihl in high school. I remember he was already 6'11" when he played for ust junior squad. Was he able to put up monster double-doubles considering he was playing against centers that are may be 8 inches shorter than him?

    What i did not know (and i just found out recently), marlou aquino and ej feihl were teammates in high school! That was one tall high school team!!! :eek

    ^
    that's the thing that is so promising with Kai, he's as tall as EJ Feihl as a high school player, but he definitely is a lot more mobile (similar to Marlou at least. which he's 2 or 3 feet taller than at same age)

    --2 feet to 3 feet taller would be in the Robert Wadlow territory plus.... maybe you mean 2 to 3 inches taller.

    Marlou was good when he was young and before he absorbed the pay-for-play attitude.
