Video: 7-4 Indian Phenom Sim Bhullar

Sim Bhullar doesn’t play basketball to please you. His dunks aren’t anywhere near as forceful as the Dwight Howard variety. He moves as quick as he needs to. He uses his soft touch to kiss-in a wet jumper as often as he can. He’s the tallest player in the Class of 2012 and already a major Canadian standout. Bhullar’s rare size and skill mean his hardwood future is extra bright. And that’s pleasing to many a college scout right now.

    His lack of athleticism (or conditioning?) could hurt later on. Hopefully he picks that up and leans out. Good luck big fella!

    Can’t teach height. Dude got a few contracts coming up in the future.

  • The Philosopher

    Shout out to Randy Brewer.

  • JR

    Yeah I’d say his athleticism and conditioning will catch up when he hits puberty. He’s 15 (16?) wow.

    “No homo, he’s huge.” Somebody kill me.

  • Randy Brown

    And he’s ahead of everybody on the break?

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    he needs to get in shape. But damn, that dude is big. Pause.

    Is this the guy with the twin brother? Or is that soemone else?

  • wilford brimley

    this guy is different from the twins.

  • ol ricky rhodes

    @niQ – yep, this is him. I though maybe one was a year older than the other but I could be wrong. AND ON A TOTALLY DIFFERENT NOTE, THE WHOLE “NO HOMO” THING IS F’ING RETARDED. NO ONE OVER 25yrs OLD SHOULD EVEN THINK OF SAYING THAT, B/C IF YOU GREW UP IN THE 80′s OR BEFORE, AND WE THOUGHT ANYTHING ABOUT YOU WAS “HOMO”, YOU WOULDN’T BE STANDING THERE TALKING TO US. THANKS.

    wow no homo? Dude if you ain’t g@Y then don’t bring it up

  • slamfan4life

    Finally an indian baller that might go into the NBA!!!! Lol took a while…………

  • http://www.anwilson.blogspot.com rainman10

    It’s not a twin brother, but he does have a brother. His brother’s name is Tanveer and he is a year behind him and 7’2″. They are playing ball at a prep school in Pennsylvania now.

  • http://slamonline.com JL

    wow that mgrads guy is really tall too just to be in the same frame as a 7’4 guy!

  • Gammy

    This is the second video on here in the last week that somebody has said “no homo”. You would think people wouldn’t say shit like that on camera. Seriously, how ignorant to you have to be. That is really the only comment I can even make on this video. Hopefully, he develops a personality as well.

  • Gammy

    This is the second video on here in the last week where someone has said no homo. How ignorant do you have to be to say something like that on camera. The sad thing is that is the only thing I can comment on because the rest of the video and interview was boring.

  • kh

    “no homo” really? really? really?

  • Kas

    Native American or from India? Kinda hard to tell.. and that guy talking to him was the worst thing I’ve ever seen

  • http://www.twiter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    Didn’t see too many skills on the video. And i doubt he beat anyone down the court, thats probably him not getting back on a fast break… which happened about 6 times in the 45 secs they showed him playing. But he’s only in 11th grade, plenty of time to improve.

  • D12FSU

    what happened to that 7-6 guy from UNC asheville, he was supposed to be a phenom too, (i heard he got a foot surgically removed, is that true?) but this indian kid seems as sluggish as the UNCA guy………….still f#ckin tall

  • namik

    I know at least 10-15 guys in India who could play at least D1 if not in the NBA if given the chance. And they’re actually Indian, not of Indian descent. This dude can barely dunk at 7’4.

  • Jer Boi

    man i was hyped qwhen i saw the title been waitinf for an indian guy to get to the NBA. and then the video dissapointed me. the only think it seems he got going for him is his height. if i was 7-4 i could do what he does. theres nothing special.

  • PlanetAsia14

    D@mn!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Can’t wait to see him play, probably in the league. I don’t see too many teams passing on him at 7’4. He’s decently mobile, and he could be the breakthrough into the “Indian Market” that the NBA has been looking for. Even though he’s Canadian.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ Kas: Definitely from India. I know a few East Indian people with the last name Bhullar.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Ballislife is a nice website and I like a lot of their videos, but sometimes I find in these mixtapes that they cut WAY too fast. I’d like to see some whole plays for once, so I can actually gauge a guy’s skills. Still, nice work (except for that “No h0m0″ interviewer. You could tell Bhullar felt awkward around that guy).

    He looks like the kid from slumdog millionaire

  • mattyp32

    the whole video was just awkward

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    Yes!! we got one Indian going to the NBA. I always said it would be an Indo-Canadian out of Toronto or Vancouver, theres a lot of guards out there right now that can really play but will get passed on, some great AAU teams out in Vancouver and Toronto. This guy is going to represent for the Punjabi Sikh’s pretty good feeling.

  • http://www.staceygoods.com Arod

    We’ll never hear from this kid again, and only if we do it will be at the circus. He’s soft as a pillow.

  • http://www.anwilson.blogspot.com rainman10

    Arod: We’ll hear from this kid again next year and the year after as he is getting top division I looks already. Once he gets the proper conditioning and weight training, his game will improve dramatically. That stuff starts to come with big men junior and senior year of high school which is right where he is.

  • Persephone

    This kid wasn’t even a concern when the Atlanta Celtics 16U team played them on the second day of the Bob Gibbons TOC (TOC). His team didn’t use him. He was winded running the floor. No defense. I fetl sorry for him. NO GAME! By the way, they lost to the Celtics.

  • Lazarus

    that interviewer is a ratard and ill say it again for the billionth time, height is the most overrated thing in basketball. sport of change of speed and taking up as much space in shortest amount of time (hence how length helps you).

  • http://www.laumol.nl/weblog Laumol

    He has to change his jerseynumber for the NBA though (113?)

  • Dave

    With a bit of luck the kid will go postal at yet another f$%£ing moron making f**$ing stupid jokes about his height and take it out on the opposition players.

    Right now, though, the quote “he moves as quick as he needs to” defines his game. And that leads only to bust,

    I have never heard of the no homo following but the link was helpful. Dip set is garbage so I’m not surprised that something so ridiculous originated from a group of studio gangstas
