How many attendants would you say it takes to get Memphis Grizzlies center Hamed Haddadi in and out of his car? Yep, this is his vehicle, according to photos on his Facebook page; just what I would buy if I were 7-foot-2, 280.
You expect him to any minute extend his legs out of the bottom of the car and walk away, with the vehicle still attached to the upper half of his body.
Comical, sure; but there’s one note of caution I would offer if I were driving this thing near lakes or forests. Because you never know when something awful could happen, like …
Oh, no! Hamed! Tragic … just utterly sad.
He seemed so happy when he purchased it. I begged him to buy the Volkswagen Rabbit.
Incidentally, when Haddadi and the Grizzlies took on the Sacramento Kings on Monday, it was the first time in NBA history that a player from a Middle East Muslim nation (Haddadi is the first Iranian to play in the NBA) has met a player from Israel — Kings’ rookie Omri Casspi.
