Robert Bobroczky is only 13 years old, but he is reportedly the tallest teenager in Europe. Perhaps more notably, he's taller than most professional basketball players.

According to's Cameron Tomarchio, the teenager is 7'4", which would make him the tallest player in the NBA. At 7'3", Hasheem Thabeet of the Oklahoma City Thunder currently claims that title.

As you can imagine, he has a pretty big advantage over his opponents.
