7 foot tall 12 year old playing basket on an 8-foot rim?!?!

A video started making the rounds featuring a 12-year-old basketball player named Olivier Rioux. Keep in mind, the average height of a 12-year-old boy is 4’10”, and Rioux, according to a video from BasketCantera.tv, is 2.13 meters tall, which is just under 7 feet.

You can immediately see the kind of advantage this gives him when playing basketball, especially because his youth league plays on an 8-foot hoop. To put that height advantage in perspective, Olivier Rioux has over a 2-foot advantage over his average teammate, which is about 45% of their total height. At this point, he should probably just join the NBA!
