The former Texas Longhorns star enters this year's NBA Draft as a potential top-5 pick, and he helped his cause with some eye-popping measurables at the draft combine in Chicago.

Bamba broke the ombine record with a 7-foot-10 wingspan. He also meaured in at just under 7-1 with shoes on. Though his offensive game proved raw during his one season at Texas, he dominated on defense.
