Robert Bobroczky

Robert Bobroczky could be the tallest NBA player in history. Bobroczky is a 7-foot-7 high school basketball player from Romania who is getting a lot of attention in the U.S.

Bobroczky, who is nicknamed "Big Rob", has a smooth jump shot and hits 3s from any spot on the court. But the 16-year-old impresses off the court as well.

Big Rob speaks four languages and boasts an amazing 4.3 grade point average.

"The kid's work ethic is absolutely unbelievable. You ask him to do anything, and he’s going to do it," said Bobby Bossman, who spotted him in recruiting videos in Romania and contacted his parents on Skype.

At the time, the 13-year-old stood 7-foot-3, but Bossman could see the potential in him.

After spending two years with an Italian club, Big Rob enrolled at Spire Institute, the academic arm of Grand River Academy in Ohio.

Spire is pacing Big Rob, getting him acclimated to the new system by playing him sporadically in games against public and private schools.

“We’ll use him every now and then,” Bossman told The NY Post in a phone interview. “Next year, he’s going to be full go from the tip.”

Bossman said Bobroczky's biggest challenge is hauling his lanky 7-foot-7, 195-pound frame up and down the court.

“I tell him, I don’t care if you score a point or grab a rebound,” Bossman said. "We want you to be comfortable, we want you to have fun, and everything else will take care of itself."

    Young man needs to start eating steaks and potatoes asap. He'll get handled in college and nba if he doesn't bulk up.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Might wanna get that pituitary gland checked. My friends brother was that tall and played several local leagues, high school, and many other competitions trying to get groomed and ready for the professional but he suffered a seizure and died in his sleep. Always had problems with that as a kid before major growth spurts.
    I wish this kid good luck!

  • Are we there yet
  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    They're trying to make him fetch because he's tall. I know a few tall dorky and uncoordinated guys.

    She made that known real quick

  • Carolina Blue

    Oh younlike short and stocky huh???

  • Are we there yet

    VERY deep voice. His pocket sized ass SOUNDS like he should be 5'10 PLUS.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Usually when they are tall like that their motor skills are off. Sloppy tripping over feet and clumsy. Can't shoot. Duh-da-dudun... you know. All these coaches gonna use him for is walking up and putting the ball in the basket.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    nah issa Giraffe.

    He 6'2.
    She is a VERY tall girl.

  • nucynu25

    She childish.

  • stav

    Exactly, however I doubt very seriously he will reach the NBA , those boys would break his ankles!

  • Carolina Blue

    You tickle me!!! Well this man does too...sounds like he should stand all of 6'3 see his ass and be like wtf? Blue 16 gives him a hard ass time about it too??

  • Carolina Blue

    ??? nah it wasnt like that!!!?? you wild af!

  • Carolina Blue

    I love yall though!!?

  • Rayne

    Lmao

  • Carolina Blue

    Nah im just saying yall niggas aint the only one with stories and shit...??

  • Carolina Blue

    Damn!

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Yeah because if he tall n bones he is bound to break something. Those nba players are sculpted and nothing but muscle. Just because you have height doesn't necessarily make you a candidate for the NBA. But the guy I knew 7/7 could actually ball.

  • Carolina Blue

    Ima tell you like i told sweet, not lies before 12 pm

  • hottlanta

    Wow they did a reversal. If black folks do well in life they are white and when they do bad they are black. For those who remember they have done a reversal. See how they added color to OJ on the front of Time Magazine when his wife Nicole got killed. When he was their "comfort zone negro" he was light brown and when Nicole died they pulled the black sharpie out quick and colored his face black.

    Manute Bol was also the same height and played in the NBA, so if this guy makes it he would be the SECOND person of that height to play professionally in the U.S.
