An US high-school basketball player of Senegalese origin is reportedly one of the tallest basketball players in the world at a giant 7 feet and 5 inches.

The 2.25 metre-tall Tacko Fall can score a slam dunk while barely jumping off the ground, and is dominating all matches for his team because of his frame.

According to Metro.co.uk, at 7-foot-5, Fall stands 9 inches taller than LeBron James and just 3 inches shorter than 7-foot-8 D-Leaguer Paul Sturgess, the tallest professional basketball player alive.

Fall is hoping for a future shot at the NBA, where he is already nearly two inches taller than Oklahoma City center Hasheem Thabeet - the tallest current NBA star, the report added.
