Not Jesus Christ, but Christ Koumadje out of FSU:

Christ went to Montverde Academy in Florida, where Ben Simmons attended high school. He’s 7’4″, 264 pounds, just a monstrous human being who was born in Chad, moved to Senegal, and then came to the United States.

Some notes via NBADraft.Net:

Overall: Christ Koumadje is a force that is hard to stop if used right … He only played 15 minutes per game in his senior year but was definitely productive during those … He needs to continue to learn to use his body to his advantage as well as expand his overall offensive game … He is great for setting effective screens and running the pick and roll.

Notes: Having not picked up a basketball until high school .., it is interesting to see just how far this young man has come. He has a unique skill-set for his size which is rare … A 7’4, 265 lb. guy who can run the floor with that type of speed and quickness is unusual … He has shown improvement throughout his four-year career at Florida State and could be a hidden gem of a prospect …

Hmm.. I can think of another African guy who didn’t pick up a basketball until he was a teenager…

Christ worked out for the Sixers before the draft, video after the jump:

(It’s actually pronounced ‘Krist,’ so the Jesus joke doesn’t work, but I wanted to use it anyway)

  1. I look forward to the new players sixers failing and not winning a championship.

    I often wonder why any player would want to come to such a poorly run team
    with a middling chance of winning a championship.


  2. The “Freak” putting down a vicious dunk on Christ and Zoo say Christ got crucified on that one. And then Ala interjects and says Marc, I don’t think Christ is going to rise after that slam.

  3. Hey Kinker,

    Do you post useless meaningless articles on purpose just to get clicks?
    Be honest!
