Were you the tallest kid growing up in school. Was it tough? (Does it bother you that people continue to make references to your height?) Shim Bullar: I was always taller than everyone else. There was a certain time when everyone had stopped growing, and I still kept growing and growing. I didn’t find it tough as people were really willing to support me and my dreams. After a point in time people started identifying me for my height, but not for the person I am. But I got used to it, and didn’t really care about what people thought about me. Huffington Post

If the experiment was to see if professionals could play Grinnell’s offense then it has already failed. The Reno Bighorns have become the D-League’s most entertaining team, averaging nearly 140 points and 50 three-point shots a game. One player, Brady Heslip, hit 20 three-pointers in the first two games, scoring 78 points and became a YouTube celebrity for a week. They are fast, aggressive and playing a way no one else in the D-League is playing. But they are not running Grinnell’s system. Not anymore. Reno’s ever-changing 10-man roster has forced Arseneault to scratch the hockey-style substitutions and the full-court press. It’s tough to run shifts and a pressure defense with only 10 players especially when one of those players is a 7ft 5in, 360lbs center named Sim Bhullar who Arseneault affectionately calls “Big Sim”. There are many unique things Big Sim can do. Running a full-court press for more than half a game is not one of them. The Guardian
