I sometimes wish I could go back to the little league as an adult and dominate a bunch of tiny, dumb humans. The only way I could ever hope to be a dominant athlete is to have an insane advantage of some sort.
Rioux is 6-foot-10, so seeing him play on lowered hoops is quite the sight. Not even 7-foot-6 Yao Ming in his NBA heyday could reach the rim with the ease we see from Rioux.
Is it fair to let a kid that tall play on an 8-foot rim? Probably not! I mean, his team’s strategy seems to be “give the ball to Olivier under the basket and he’ll dunk it without jumping.” Good strategy, but not exactly fair.
Things might not come as easy for Rioux when he graduates to taller rims and taller, more skilled competition, but that doesn’t matter right now. All that matters is that we have these highlights for our entertainment and that Rioux is living the dream — or at least my dream — for the time being.
Is that even legal?
