At 7’5″, Sim Bhullar is the biggest player in the 2014 NBA Draft and is taller than any current NBA player. The two-time WAC Tournament MVP out of New Mexico State would be the first ever NBA player of primarily Indian descent.
Bhullar has taken some criticism for being too raw to make it in the fast-paced NBA. Leading up to the Draft, he has been training at Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas to work on his game and conditioning.
We followed Sim during his training and spoke with his parents about their son’s journey toward the NBA. A special thanks to the Bhullars and Impact Basketball Academy for their help in making this video.

Last week, Kanye West, Steve Stoute and Ben Horowitz held court in Cannes, France as a part of the annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. In a seminar titled “Technology, Culture, and Consumer Adoption: Learning to Read the Cultural Landscape,” West prefaced his words by saying he didn’t want to make any “over-the-top statements that end up getting quoted.”
There won’t be any mistaking anything on this side, because STASHED is proud to premiere the entire video of these three groundbreaking gentlemen at the Cannes Lions festival. “There would have been no Beats deal without the Samsung deal. It showed the No. 1 company the importance of connecting with culture,” said West on the deal Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine recently inked with Apple.
“The reason I said I didn’t like Samsung particularly is because throughout my entire life, because of how my parents raised me, I have to work with the No. 1. I can’t work with anyone but Jay Z, because he’s No. 1. I can’t be with any girl but Kim, because that’s the girl whose pictures I look at the most and get turned on by. I’m not going to represent any company but Louis Vuitton, because that’s No. 1. … Samsung is not quite Apple, but it showed that Jimmy [Iovine] and Dre would be able to connect with the No. 1 influencers.”
“Apple was so profound at making great products in great design language,” added Stoute. “And yet they found themselves culturally susceptible to another brand whose products weren’t necessarily as great at that time. Samsung used culture as a way to get into the conversation. And that’s why the Apple/Beats deal makes sense. Whatever Samsung is doing culturally, Apple has the 800-pound gorilla in Beats and Jimmy and Dre.”
