Giant 7ft11 basketball prodigy Abiodun Adegoke leaves fans stunned as they gasp ‘that rim must be lowered’

THE 7ft11 basketball phenom Abiodun Adegoke has continued to be a sensation on the Internet.

A towering center from Nigeria, Adegoke’s stature was noticed by the NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal in 2021.

Not a lot of info is known of Adegoke’s roots, but he attended the Segun Odegbami International College (SOCA) on a sports scholarship.

At the time, reports in Nigeria suggested he was 7ft2 at the age of 17.

Former LA Lakers O’Neal shared a clip of Adegoke’s surprising abilities in March of 2021.

The footage also showed Adegoke dunking the ball with both feet still planted on the court.

Adegoke’s jaw-dropping frame has led to him going viral on the Internet, with his Instagram videos growing in popularity under the name ‘Big Naija’.

In March, he posted himself in a basketball gym while practicing his post-ups dunks alongside trainers.

His Instagram caption read: “I’m going to KEEP WORKING ! None of them know my story, NONE of them know hwere I come from, or what it took to get here. I’m riding with my people! Time will tell!

Fans were amazed at him dunking so easily and how it looked unfair to dunk on trainers at least two feet shorter.

One fan said: “Keep up the good work [clapping hands emoji.”

Another wrote: “That basketball hoop looks like a toy.”

And a third said: “That rim must be lowered.”

Adegoke currently plays at MPAC Sports in the UAE as he appeared in Dubai’s Elite Youth League in 2021 after being selected ninth in the first round of the draft.

There’s still speculation about Adegoke’s real age with conflicting reports putting him between 18 and 23.

The Nigerian told his followers in 2021 that he was still a teenager.

However, reporters in Nigeria in 2016 suggested he was already 17 by that year.

Adegoke jokes on his social media bio that he’s still growing, writing: “Standing at TBA (I have GROWN)”

While there hasn’t been movement from NBA scouts on the prospect, he would hold the record for the tallest player ever seen in the professional league.

Gheorghe Muresan and Manute Bol currently have the record for the highest players ever in the NBA at 7-foot-7.
