HoopsHype features Chu Chu

In a recent article by the “Bible of the NBA” (aka HoopsHype), Jorge Sierra¬† scores an interview with recent Nuggets’ draft selection, Chukwudiebere Maduabum. In the midst of a lockout with hardly any relevant Nuggets News, this is a blessing, especially considering the general lack of information available on the mystery man from Nigeria. In fact, in all likelihood this is probably the most detailed report on Chu Chu ever available to the public — all whopping 11 paragraphs of it. So please, if you have some time be sure to give this a read, as it’s extremely informative given the circumstances and should give Nuggets’ fans quite a bit of encouragement about a guy selected No. 56 overall. As Sierra mentions, Chu Chu clearly isn’t ready to play in the NBA just yet, so the lockout will actually benefit him greatly. But if early signs are any indication of how Chu Chu might pan out, we could potentially have a contributor as he’s already packed on 20 pounds and made drastic improvements to his game since coming to the US only a few months ago.

    I saw Chu Chu in a gym in L.A. The other day. He’s around 6’11” now and at least 250. He can palm a basketball with his thumb and forefinger like he’s holding a tennis ball, and he dunked a ball by jumping up the backside of the basket, going over the backboard, and throwing it down as if he were throwing a donut into a hot cup of coffee. He has a pet Ox named Blue…

      6’11?? So the article stated 6’9 with a 7’3 wingspan, what would his wingspan be if he was in fact 6’11??

        Sorry, Travis. I was just messing with everyone there, because Chu Chu is such a long shot, there is no reason to even talk about him unless he beats the million to one odds against him ever donning a Nuggets uniform. That’s why I made up the yarn about him in a gym in L.A. The last line was the tip off. Blue was the name of Paul Bunyan’s Ox. To answer your question, though, if he did grow to 6’11”, I’m sure his wingspan would be so long, that he could touch both sides of the key at the same time!

    I hope this lockout won’t waste the whole season!
