I saw a video clip of Chara standing next to Shaq and chit chatting about a week ago at the Garden. They were standing eye to eye.

Then the camera zoomed out and you see all the other people in the hallway and they looked SO small. They looked like two adults in a room full of kindergardeners. It was so funny.

Shaq wants Chara to come play for his team.

Best line about Manute: He looks like he gave blood and forgot to say "when"

The NHL should try to get that guy who is supposedly comming from China I think who is something like 7'9 or something insane like that, and have him play in the NHL. Good marketing ploy!!!!

How about the biggest line?

Sundin Antropov and Ponikarovsky are all 6'4 and up I believe.

More like Wadhigh. Imagine having to stand behind him in a line, you'd know right away when he's had beans.

I've seen pictures of friends sitting in his custom chair. Friggin' hilarious. The guy standing next to him must be 5'4 or so.
