Fred Smoot’s Wingspan

Fred Smoot came in after practice yesterday talking about his exceptional wingspan. To demonstrate just how unusual it is, he started an impromptu compeitions. First he put the tips of the fingers on one hand just against the wall, straightened his arms, and forced Shawn Springs to do the same thing facing him.

“This is the only way to measure this,” he said. “Nothing else is accurate.”

Smoot won. Then Carlos Rogers tried, and also failed to measure up. Khary Campbell asked if he could get in, and came closer, but Smoot still could claim to have the widest reach. The informal challenge broke up at this point, as these things tend to do.

And then, like in a Hollywood movie, one last challenger showed up. This guy:

And, also just like the Hollywood movie, the last challenger won the contest. “Well of course,” Smoot said, miming the motion of throwing a football. “You spend your whole life going like this, you’re going to stretch your arms out.” Coach Zorn just smiled and walked away.
