In the world of the internet and viral videos of people showing their talents, people can be just a video away from fame.
This is the case of Nigerian Abiodun Adegoke, a 2.36 metre tall man who has attracted interest from the basketball elite, thanks to a training session video recorded in Dubai, where the man is seen blocking shots without even having to jump.
Adegoke, who refers to himself as the ‘Big Naija’ is two inches taller than the tallest ever basketball player ever to play in the NBA and has caught the attention of scouts and league legends, including the likes of Shaquille O’Neal.
However, there have been some doubts raised regarding Adegoke’s age.
According to the man himself he is 18 years old, but some information has led to believe that the man is in fact 21 years old.
In 2018, there was a newspaper article that spoke of a 17-year-old who was 2.18 metres tall and stood out in the world of basketball, but he needed money to continue his studies after having left school.
Adegoke continues to train and play in the MPAC Elite Youth League in Dubai, but will it be a question of time before we see him in the NBA?
