List Of Tallest NBA Players In History

We decided to construct a list of tallest NBA players that actually had some impact on the game:

1. Gheorghe Mureșan – 7’7” 315 lb. One of the most gifted giants on the offensive end. He played seven seasons in the association for the Bullets and Nets. His best year was ’95-’96 when he averaged slightly below 15 pts and 10 rbs. He has a very active life of the court connected with NGO’s and in the movie industry.

2. Manute Bol – 7’7” 200 lb. Maybe it was not that much about the player Manute was, but the personality and standards that he preached during his life. He was best palls with Charles Barkley and Rick Mahorn.

3. Shawn Bradley – 7’6” 275 lb. One of the most hyped big man in history of basketball, but he never met expectations. Most disappointing was his attitude towards the game.

4. Chuck Nevitt – 7’5” 217 lb. The tallest player that won an NBA Chamionship with the Detroit Pistons bad boys.

5. Yao Ming – 7’6” 310 lb. Everyone is wondering what would happen if there were not the injuries tracking Yao during his career.

6. Mark Eaton- 7’4” 290 lb. Still holds record for highest block average in a season.

Image

7. Rik Smits- 7’4” 250 lb. One of the key elements in those Indiana-New York classic matchups.

Image

8. Ralph Samson- 7’4” 235 lb. The highest hall of fame inductee. While healthy he constructed a killing tandem under the rims with Olajuwon named “The Twin Towers”.

Image 9. Zydrunas Ilgauskas- 7’3” 260 lb. Two Lithuanians at the end of this list. You all remember Ilgauskas and his tenure with the Cavs when he was a part of the LeBron era in Cleveland.

Image

10. Arvydas Sabonis- 7’3” 292 lb. Probably the most talented player in this group with highly developed ball handling and shooting technique.
