China’s Sun shining in Japanese basketball league

Sun Mingming is a little man that measures only 7’9” short.
Not sure it’s good for the basketball game: fineness vs freak show.
I think people would like to see a normal man to compete, not overly gifted. The Avery rule shows the same sentiment. What’s fair is fair. Human couldn’t go against the Neanderthal!

“It’s surreal,” says 6-foot-8 forward Lynn Washington, a two-time MVP in Japan. “You can’t really do much because he’s so big. He just holds the ball up in the air and it looks like a tennis ball.”
Sun’s resume even includes an appearance in the 2007 comedy Rush Hour 3 with Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. After appearing in the fight scene, he said he’s more interested in basketball than Hollywood.
