Why do people think this is ok?

Im pretty tall, 6'5'', and get stopped just about every time i go out by people commenting on my height and asking if i play basketball!!

Now why do people think its ok to go up to tall people and comment on their height and ask if they play basketball? I mean would it be ok for me to go up to a little person and comment on their height and ask if they play mini golf?

For me, personally, i find it rude... I would like to go out just once and not have random people tell me i should play basketball!!
