Can we talk about that picture of Nick Richards’ hand?

Outside of the final score and maybe PJ Washington’s 26 and 12 double-double, the most impressive thing from the game was that photo of Nick Richards’ hand. He held it against Karl Ravech’s hand before the game and I assume Karl Ravech has a normal size hand. I mean, Ravech is kind of short, I guess, but I suspect his hand is about average for a grown man. I doubt he has any hand conditions or hand deformities we don’t know about. If he did, I don’t think he’d be flaunting his leprechaun hand during the second half of a nationally-televised college basketball game for everyone to see.

So let’s assume Ravech has an ordinary, middle of the road, par for the course, regular size left man hand. If that’s the case, Nick Richards has Guiness Book of World Record hands. I bet he can palm an exercise ball or maybe even one of those little smart cars. And now I want to see his hand against Donald Trump’s. Maybe they can compare at the White House in April?

    You can tell from the discoloration at the tips that Nick is wearing his finger extensions.

      LOL catsarerunnin … as Jerry Seinfeld would say, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

      EdC, since we are running with the Jerry references, let’s just say that when Nick gets in the pool, there is no significant shrinkage. 🙂

    The. Enter for Texas had his hands talked about during their game, as well. 10.5”! Nearly a foot! How do you ever lose a ball with massive grabbers like that?!

      Well, it’s probably a little bit like trying to catch a softball bare handed. I am actually surprised Nick can shoot FT’s so well with those mitts. Most big men with hands that large are tossing bricks. Nick is actually a pretty good FT shooter, and his jump hook has a lot of potential.

      He is pretty good about holding the ball with his finger tips when shooting free throws, as guys with big hands have to do. Shaq tried, but even that didn’t help him.

    It’s not the size of the hands, or the feet. It’s not skin color.

    It has to do with if your ring finger is longer than your pointer finger.

    Ok let’s get back to basketball topics lol.
