Being 7-foot-4, 330 pounds has helped Sim Bhullar land a scholarship to Xavier, a profile in the New York Times and a place on Canada's U-19 World Championship team.
Nonetheless, as the above photo shows, there are some drawbacks.
Anthony Bennett, a summer teammate of Bhullar's on CIA Bounce, tweeted this photo on Saturday of the 18-year-old Canada native boarding a flight home from the Peach Jam tournament in Georgia. It looks painful enough to give the rest of us a guilt trip next time we complain about a lack of leg room on a flight or the chubby guy in the aisle seat hogging the armrest.
Bhullar dreams of one day becoming the world's most prominent basketball player of Indian descent, telling the New York Times, "I think it would be a blessing to be the first from an entire country to go to the NBA and be a role model."
Perhaps he'll achieve that dream and be able to fly charter flights between every game. For now, he's stuck flying coach with everyone else.
