The physical differences between the two sports were clear to see in the picture.

The Japanese driver was towered over by N’Diaye as there was a near TWO-FOOT height difference between the unlikely friends.

Tsunoda measures in at 5ft 3in, whereas Senegalese basketball star turned coach is a whopping 7ft.

And fans could not help but laugh at the picture once it hit social media.


One tweeted: “I mean, everyone would look tiny next to a 7ft giant?”

A second commented: “Yuki literally pocket-sized.”

A third wrote: “Freaking hell, Yuki looks like a real-life hobbit.”

A fourth said: “Tears streaming down my face.”

A fifth added: “68cm of height difference, like wow, humans are awesome actually.”

N’Daiye last played for Correcaminos UAT Victoria in the LNBP, the top league in Mexico before moving into coaching.

During his days with UC Irvine, he was the tallest player in the NCAA Division I.
