There areÂ few Asians or Asian Americans playing major college sports and even fewer South Asians at such a high level. And unlikeÂ Jeremy Lin, the brothers haveÂ recruiters at big-time college basketball programsÂ salivating at the prospect of having one or both siblings on their teams. WhileÂ Lin certainly has the skills, the Bhullars’ size sets them apart and makes them tantalizing NBA prospects.
Sim, 17, is 7-4 and 285 pounds. Tanveer, 15, is 7-2 and 265 pounds. Both grew up in Canada and now attend The Kiski School in Saltsburg, PA, near Pittsburgh. Their parents immigrated to Toronto from India and sent their sons to school in the United States to help them enhance their ball skills.
Wouldn’t it be cool if someday the Bhullar brothers and Lin were in the NBA together?
