Mohamed Bamba measures ridiculous wingspan at NBA Combine

Mohamed Bamba measures ridiculous wingspan at NBA Combine

Part of the reason for that success was revealed at Thursday's NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

The 2018 NBA Combine is only one day old, and Mohamed Bamba already has the basketball world buzzing.

Bamba broke the ombine record with a 7-foot-10 wingspan.

Bamba also measured in with the longest standing reach (9 feet, 7 1/2 inches) out of anyone in the draft class.

Before undergoing November back surgery, which sidelined him for all but three games of his lone collegiate season, Porter was pegged as a potential No. 1 overall pick. "I do more, but I require less, both on the court and off the court". You could maybe consider Taurean Prince or John Collins as pieces moving forward, but those guys' ceilings likely put them as the fourth or fifth best players on great teams.

Bamba's point on efficiency is underlined by his 54.1 percent shooting mark from the field at Texas - despite hitting just 27.5 percent on 1.7 3-point attempts per contest.
