OMG Alex Len would terrify NFL defenses if he played tight end

The Suns' center is working on his hands by catching footballs after practice.

If Alex Len ever decided to play football, the world might explode.

From a recent nba.com/suns article:

For roughly 30 minutes after Tuesday's practice at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix, Suns center Alex Len used a unique approach to improve his catching ability. Instead of accepting entry passes into the post or lobs at the rim, he was receiving pigskin bullets shot out of a football-throwing machine that he purchased himself on eBay.

"I was just watching videos on the internet of wide receivers catching the balls," Len said. "I thought it was a good idea to work on my hands and do something different."

That is so cool.
