Okafor Too Tall For Roller Coaster

Remember life before your growth spurt? When you checked for facial hair every morning, every girl in school was taller than you and you weren’t tall enough to ride the Super Killer Monster roller coaster at Six Flags. Well the same thing sort of happened to Emeka Okafor last night –minus the facial hair and girls. The 6-10 center was deemed too tall to ride the Superman: Ride of Steel at a Washington season ticket holder’s event at Six Flags America.

According to Deadspin, Okafor was already strapped into the ride when park employees informed him he was too tall for the ride. The ordeal took 20 minutes

I guess next time the Wizards will just opt for a more vertically-enhanced friendly event.
