Amazing facts-Tallest teen Basketball player

Tallest Teen Basketball Player

The Jamaican-born hoopster dwarfs fellow players in court.

Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson a Jamaican-born hoopster, who could tower over legendary ballplayers like Michael Jordan (6-6) and LeBron James (6-8), was the highest-scoring "netball" player in her country -- a sport similar to basketball.

"Everyone has come up to me and asked if I play college basketball. I told them I'm only a sophomore in high school. They gasped when I told them," Anderson said.

Rutgers Prep sophomore Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson, 16. 6"11" dwarfs fellow player Arielle Sheman, 15, 5"2" during a photoshoot.

Rutgers coach Mary Coyle-Klinger and her sister, former WNBA coach Pat Coyle, have been working with their new star. Anderson picked up six points in her first game on Dec. 10 and Coyle-Klinger was not disappointed.

Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson's on-court prowess earned her a scholarship to Rutgers Prep in Somerset, and for the last two months she's been hitting the hardwood to learn the rules of basketball.

The biggest problem "Bubbles" seems to have is adjusting to the cold weather and finding clothes and shoes to fit her 210-pound frame and size-12 feet.
