There are THREE CONSTANTS IN LIFE:
1.) DEATH
2.) TAXES
and of course
3.) GHEORGHE MURESAN PROVIDING COMEDY IN EVERY- THING HE DOES

This fine Wednesday, I want to pay tribute to my favorite 7 feet 7 inch Romanian man, none other than Gheorghe Dumitru Muresan, or as Billy Crystal might call him…”My Giant”.  I would like to call this little segment “All things Gheorghe”, and it begins…NOW:

A little Bio of the Big Man:
-Born in the Transylvania (true story) region of Romania on February of 1971, so yes, he is the ripe age of 40 if any of you ladies are wondering out there.
-Selected by the Washington Bullets in the 1993 NBA Draft, 30th overall.
-Voted the NBA’s Most Improved Player during the 1995-1996 season where he had averages of 14.5 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.26 blocks per game while leading the NBA in field goal percentage.
-Stole the show in multiple commercials, movies and short video clips providing the comic relief. Basically Gheorghe is the John Belushi of the Eastern Block.

Gheorghe on the BIG SCREEN:

Who is that big Euro ventriloquist in Eminem’s first video “My Name Is” you ask…That is Ghita! (Gheorghe in Romanian).  Check the 1:34 mark.

Hungry? Why Wait? Gheorghe makes time for the kids…

Is that cabbage Gheorghe?

The Big Man  shakes and moves like none other…look at those knees!

 

Gheorghe on the basketball floor…the GOOD, the BAD and of course always UGLY:

The GOOD:

Gheorghe, YOU NASTY…flying around Penny Hardaway like a cold war Astronaut? YES PLEASE!

The BAD:

Shaq abusing Boy Gheorghe like a red headed step child:

The UGLY:
