The 6-foot-10 forward missed 2011 due to injury
Kader Tapsoba has massive hands.
The giant paws are the first things you notice about the 6-foot-10 Texas Tech forward as he uses his long fingers and menacing palms to swallow handshakes whole.
When a visitor points this out to Tapsoba, he can only laugh. He’s heard it all before.
“That’s the first thing people say when I shake their hands,” Tapsoba said. “They say, ‘Whoa, you have huge hands.’ Like I didn’t know.”
Now he just wants people to know what those hands are capable of on a basketball court.
